I'm a big fan of at least 1 day or better yet 2 days off (although at the moment I'm guilty of only taking 1 day off). However that works best for you is your best bet. Your body really does need time to rest and rebuild, it's part of the muscle building/fitness process and you're not doing yourself any good by overtraining. That being said, if you feel like you really must get some kind of activity in everyday, then try just walking instead of actually taking a real day off.
