Is it "time off of work" or "time off work" without 'of'?

Ex: I need to take some time off (of) work next month.

I would say that I need to take some time off from work

"Time off" is leisure time

The verb we usually use with it is "Take", making the phrase "take time off". The rest is optional [ of work, from work, etc. ]
