Why take a vacation?
Taking time away from the stresses of life will give you a well deserved break. By doing so, you will return to your life feeling refreshed and better equipped to handle whatever comes your way. Sadly, many people have forgotten what it is like to have a few uncluttered days to relax and regroup. Below are some reasons why regular vacations are a good idea.
- Vacations Stave Off Burnout: Workers who take regular time to relax are less likely to experience burnout, making them more creative and productive than their overworked, under-rested counterparts.
- Vacations Can Keep Us Healthy: Taking regular time off to ‘recharge your batteries’, thereby keeping stress levels lower, can keep your immune system functioning at a higher level.
- Vacations Can Strengthen Bonds: Spending time enjoying life with loved ones can keep relationships strong, helping you enjoy the good times more and helping you through the stress of the hard times. In fact, a study by the Arizona Department of Health and Human Services found that women who took vacations were more satisfied with their marriages.
- Vacations Can Help With Your Job Performance: As the authors of the above study suggest, the psychological benefits that come with more frequent vacations lead to increased quality of life, and that can lead to increased quality of work on the job.
