Why Travel is Good for You

This year has flown by and the “season of giving” is coming right up. The older we get, the more we have to do. Sometimes we get so caught up in our routine and taking care of everyone else that we tend to forget about ourselves. While the end of the year looms over us, let’s talk about why you should give yourself the gift of vacation.

It’s easy to get burnt out on work. You have the same schedule day in and day out and you look forward to a few quiet minutes before bed, then you sleep and wake up to start it all over. Some even tend to overcommit or hate saying no to extra hours, shifts, or projects. Over half of Americans don’t even use all of their vacation days. Studies show that workers waste an average of SEVEN vacation days each year, just leaving them on the table. But when you get time off, it improves your productivity. Taking a break to get some air, relax, and do things you really enjoy will actually help your mood and focus when you get back to work.

The same can be said for relationships. We all get in a rut, doing the same things each week and are so busy we forget to take time to appreciate what’s important. Getting away with your significant other is always an ideal way to regroup and get on the same page again. When you don’t have deadlines and appointments to worry about, you can enjoy your time together and remember the things you love about your partner with nothing to distract you.

It’s great for your health! Taking time to enjoy nature and the little things in life can help reduce stress. A walk on the beach, a nap in a hammock under palm trees, reading a book by the pool – these are all great ways to unwind. This downtime will help you reenergize to reach your full potential when you return to your normal routine.

Destin, Florida is the ideal place for you to treat yourself. Warm sunshine, miles of pristine beaches, amazing restaurants, and great shopping will provide endless options to have a good time. You can book one of many 30A vacation rentals right on or near the beach and take a nice bike ride around town. Give yourself the gift of a beach vacation, you deserve it!
