In America, we are known not to take all of our vacation days. We don’t get as many paid vacation days as the rest of the world, yet our workaholic culture makes us think it’s ok to let them go to waste. We believe by working our tails off, we will be more successful.
On your last vacation, how amazing did you feel? You’re out of the office, maybe on a beach somewhere, and have nowhere you need to be. Your stress levels are a lot lower, you have a smile on your face, and your creative mind starts to reboot and take off again.
Taking a well-deserved vacation is a must. Here are reasons why you should book your next vacation ASAP.
It Gives You Something To Look Forward To
I don’t know about you, but I HAVE to have something to look forward to. As a working adult, you do the same thing day in and day out, and that routine can get old quick. If you have something to look forward to (like a vacation), it creates excitement which in return will improve your overall mood.
It Will Improve Your Creativity Levels
We all get wrapped up in the everyday motions of life that we never truly give our brain a break. When your mind is on overdrive, it restricts creativity. When you rest your mind, you allow yourself to think freely, and the best ideas come when your mind is at rest.
It Will Improve Your Mood and Happiness Levels
If I could get paid to vacation, I would. Getting away from all the stress and worries of life for a little bit is freeing and addicting. When you take a vacation, it gives you time to think and recharge. When you return to work, you will be a happier person and those co-workers that bug you may become more tolerable. 😉
You Deserve a Break!
We all deserve a break from time to time. You work hard and deal with all the crap that comes with being an adult, so don’t hesitate and book that vacation! You’ll be happy you did.
Do any of you ladies have vacations you’re looking forward to soon?
