We’ve all said it at least once in our lives: “I need a long vacation!” Well, while long vacations such as luxury cruises or a week in the mountains are certainly wonderful, it could be that you just need more vacations. We’re not talking about taking four or five weeks off from work every year, either. Just a day or two away from your normal routine several times a year could be better for you than one long trip in a blue moon.
Stress Happens All Year
You fight against stress almost every day. Some days can be worse than others, but you’ve come to know at least some amount of stress as a constant daily companion. It stands to reason, then, that taking more frequent breaks would do more to help you combat that constant stress than trying to fit a year or more worth of decompression into one extended break.
Besides that, planning for one big vacation often brings its own unique stress with it. Packing, organizing, planning, and traveling, combined with upsets in sleep cycles and eating schedules can take a lot out of you when it’s for extended periods. That doesn’t mean you should swear off that luxury cruise or never call your travel agent again, but it is important to be aware of the stress so you can balance it and still enjoy your time away.
Frequent Vacations are Manageable
Your travel agent can help you discover numerous ways to enjoy just a day or two of free time and come back feeling refreshed. With these mini vacations, you don’t face unmanageable expenses, you probably won’t spend too much time traveling, and you don’t have to pack up the entire house to be sure you have everything you need. You get a break, have some fun, and come back feeling like you actually had a break rather than like you just came off of a second job. Give it a try!
