Taking a break not only gives you a chance to rest, but it can also promote clearer thinking and greater productivity.

Vacation is the real break

A vacation is a real break, in the classic sense of the word, and taking a vacation is more important than many people realize. That’s why many vacation days go unused when they should be enjoyed to the fullest.

The key to a restful vacation is to prioritize rest and fun when you go; don’t overbook yourself with tourist activities or bring so much work with you that by the time you return you feel you need a vacation from your vacation.

Many people feel taking a break adds too much work in preparing to be away and then making up for the missed time. While it may take some effort, the health and well-being benefits you’ll gain more than make up for those costs.

Planning a trip and the benefits

Planning and anticipating a trip can be almost as enjoyable as going on the trip itself.

the anticipation of an experience (like a trip) can increase a person’s happiness substantially—much more so than the anticipation of buying material goods. travelers end up talking to people more about their experiences than they talk about material purchases. Compared to possessions, experiences make for better story material.

Among the pandemic’s many challenges: quarantine measures greatly reduce our ability to create new experiences and connect with other people. And we’re craving those connections and their social benefits more than ever.

Consider that and take action

A break from routine, mind-opening experiences, trying new foods, and new things, and making memories – are only a few of the benefits of taking a family vacation.

It’s a fact: The beneficial effects of vacations have been well-documented and include reducing emotional exhaustion and burnout, decreasing absenteeism, increasing work engagement, and increasing health, well-being, life satisfaction, and quality of life.

People who take vacations have lower stress, less risk of heart disease, a better outlook on life, and more motivation to achieve goals.

The biggest boost in happiness comes from planning the vacation. You can feel the effects up to 8 weeks before your trip. And when you’re done with that retreat, start planning the next one. Simply having something to look forward to can be rewarding!
