Enjoy Your Summer
We often find ourselves thinking, "I need a vacation". If so, chances are you really do. In most cases, not just a "daycation", but a real vacation to get away from the daily grind. Secrets to happiness are often found in how we find affordable vacations that allow us to relax stress free.
According to last year’s Expedia.com Vacation DeprivationTM survey, American adults on average do not take all the vacation days they receive each year. In fact, the number of vacation days awarded and taken is at five-year low in the U.S.. If you want to positively affect your health and well-being, both on the job and at home, use your vacation days – all of them!
The evidence is stacking up that vacations are necessary for reducing stress, lifting depression and living longer. People who don't take regular vacations are more likely to develop heart disease, have a heart attack or suffer from sleep problems. Health experts recommend a vacation of at least a week to help you relax and sleep better.
bonding with loved ones
If your spouse and children only see you tired and crabby at the end of many long workdays, you may have tension in your relationships. Family vacations offer time to reconnect with those you love and can create special lasting memories.
It's true – vacations have career benefits, too. People who return from vacation tend to feel rejuvenated about their jobs and report less burnout in the long run.
