Taking a vacation isn’t just something you want; it’s something you need. Here are 5 reasons to make them a priority in your life!
1. Well-being is #1 reason to be great at work and home
When my mind and body feel great, I perform at 110 percent. Too much of anything work, stress, demanding routine, inevitably throws balance off affecting our ability to carry on life’s task well. Because I don’t want to limp through my life activities all year, I am choosing to invest in my well-being regularly — that includes regular breaks.

2. To Relieve Stress
Stress is a true physiological response originally meant to help us and keep us safe. It releases hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine for the fight or flight response that was necessary for early man. However, in modern society, chronic stress can be destructive to our bodies. Getting away for regular vacations and leaving our every day stresses give us a break from the constant high levels of these hormones and a chance to repair some of the damage.
3. To Reconnect with Family
It’s easy for everyone in the family to get caught up in their own schedules. Soccer practice, work, piano lessons, and housework are just a few of the things that can prevent families from spending quality time together. Vacations allow family members to reconnect, bond, and spend time having fun together without the schedules and stresses of everyday life. Planning a family retreat somewhere new helps create memories that will last a lifetime and leave you feeling closer than ever.
4. To Have Fun
First of all…What is fun? Fun is anything you want it to be. Think of your idea of fun and go crazy with it because you don’t have anything other to do than take a break and let loose in whichever form you feel is appropriate.
5. To Experience New Things
Experiencing new things is difficult when you’re forced to stay put or you’re locked into a routine. A vacation is a perfect opportunity to venture out of your comfort zone and try something new. Whether you travel to a country you’ve always wanted to see, or you book an excursion to do something you’ve never done before, you’re sure to feel a sense of new excitement. Break the mold and experience something new by traveling outside of your comfort zone.
