For many people, it may seem difficult—if not impossible—to find enough time to enjoy a simple vacation with family or friends. If you’re longing to escape your nine-to-five lifestyle but are having trouble doing so, it’s time to talk to your travel agent about planning a getaway that fits your budget and schedule. Here is a guide to making your vacation work:
Take Advantage of Those Paid Vacation Days
Did you know that over half of American workers didn’t use their allocated vacation days in 2011? While it may seem tricky to fit your vacation into your busy work schedule, the most obvious opportunity for doing so rests in those vacation days. With help from your St. Louis travel agency, you can plan a break from work that makes the most of your time.
Plan Around Kids’ Holiday Breaks
Families with little ones can make a vacation dream a reality by planning around school holidays. Although hotels and flights may be pricier on these days, your travel agent can help you search for great deals on family-friendly adventures around the country and the world.
Consider Sticking a Little Closer to Home
If the idea of jet-setting to a far-off place makes you uneasy, try to keep your plans a little closer to home. “Staycations” are becoming popular options for couples or families who would love to get away from the stress and monotony of their day-to-day lives without traveling far.
View Your Getaway as a Mental Health Retreat
When weighing the decision to stay or to go, think about how beneficial a vacation could be to your mental health. Failing to indulge in the occasional escape can increase your risk for certain diseases, including depression.
