Pochettino will give his players and staff three days off as the Blues enjoy a 10-day break until the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Middlesbrough.
Asked whether he hopes to get a call on his holiday about new signings, Pochettino joked: "To be honest, I would prefer it if the phone did not ring. If it does not ring, it is much better for me.”
Pochettino feels his Chelsea team deserve a break.
He said: "We need to give some rest to the players and the staff also because it is a really busy period now and they need to breathe a little bit. This break is very useful.
"Then we are going to prepare. We have seven days to prepare for the second leg against Middlesbrough on Tuesday and then on Friday in the FA Cup against Aston Villa, and then Wednesday again in the Premier League.
"Three games in three different competitions - but I think they need three days off. They need to revive, so it is important and then they can attack the second half of the season.
"Too many of our players are going to be involved in March with the international break and too many competitions that they now need to have some break."
Pochettino rarely speaks about former club Tottenham due to the rivalry between them and Chelsea.
"He was in my past,” said Pochettino. “I managed him, and I wish him the best."
