Need a Vacation? You're Not Alone

Kick up your feet and relax!

Enjoy Your Summer


We often find ourselves thinking, "I need a vacation!" If you've been dreaming about getting away from your daily grind, chances are you really should. According to Expedia's Annual Vacation Deprivation survey, "Americans took six fewer vacation days (less than 12 days) than the global average in 2021, leaving the majority feeling vacation deprived (59%) and more burned out than ever (72%)."

If you're like many Americans, a vacation might not be in your immediate plans. Below are some reasons why you shouldn't skip your summer vacation and reap the benefits of getting away:

Better health

The evidence is mounting that regular time away from the job is critical to an individual's health and wellbeing. Taking a vacation can help you rest and recuperate, reducing stress, lifting depression, and helping you live longer. People who don't prioritize time off from work are more likely to develop heart disease, have a heart attack, or suffer from sleep problems. Health experts recommend a vacation of at least one week each year to help you adequately relax and recharge.

Bonding with loved ones

Reconnecting with loved ones is another rewarding benefit of getting away. Family vacations offer time to bond with those close to you while creating lasting memories. But beware of the temptation to work remotely during your leisure time. Dubbed the "workcation," taking calls or even virtual meetings during your trip can derail valuable bonding time with family.

Increased productivity

It's true ­– vacations have career benefits, too. As much as 49% of Americans said they feel guilt when they don't do anything "productive" while on vacation. However, vacationing is very beneficial to one's health and is known to ease burnout. People who return from vacation tend to feel rejuvenated in their jobs and report a renewed focus in their lives and productivity.

Use It, Don't Lose It

Give yourself a break ­– you earned it! In 2021, American workers took the least vacation days even though more workers in the U.S. received unlimited PTO (14%) than those in other countries (8%). Whether you take a trip large or small, let us help you make the most of your earned time-off!
