When was the last time you took a vacation?
Was it a month ago? A year ago? More than that? Vacations are often considered a luxury, or an extravagance not afforded by many. However, vacations are far from that, and are rather a necessity for your health and overall well-being. According to Expedia’s annual study on Vacation Deprivation, 47% of Americans are not using their vacation days and it is affecting their health and work performance.
In case you still need more convincing – here are the top 4 reasons why you should stop putting off that road trip to the beach!
You’ll live longer
Taking a break from the routine can make a huge difference in your health and wellbeing. According to CNN, putting off your vacation can also increase your risk for heart disease and shorten life expectancy. One study showed that women who did not vacation annually were almost 8 times more likely to develop coronary heart disease! Going on vacation can add years to your life – and the good kind of years, in a beautiful condo…in Galveston!
You’ll be a better employee
Ironically enough, being away from your job can make you more productive and a better employee. Vacations can help you disconnect from the stressful routine. You will come back to work refreshed and ready to work hard – for your next vacation!
You will reconnect with your family
Make sure to disconnect from your job when on vacation. Don’t check your emails and put away the phone. Be present, reconnect with your family and make beautiful memories – isn’t that what life is all about? Trust us – work WILL be there when you get back.
You deserve it
Taking time off is not something you should feel ashamed of. (Yes, vacation shaming is also a thing!) Everyone needs a break from the daily grind. Practice self-care by booking a vacation – you deserve it!
