These days, we live in a society in which working 60-hour weeks is something to brag about and burnout is the norm. To many working professionals, the thought of taking a vacation is actually stressful! Then, when they finally do agree to take some PTO, they usually just stay at home and either run errands or binge a TV show as a “staycation”.
Although any time off is beneficial, leaving to go somewhere on vacation is actually important for your mental and physical health and wellbeing. If you’re debating whether or not to take that vacation you’ve secretly had in mind, here are a few reasons why you absolutely should!
Between work, family, your social life, household responsibilities, and all of your other regular obligations, it’s easy for stress to pile up quickly. Chronic stress has many negative effects on your health, such as high blood pressure, high heart rate, weakened immune system, difficulties sleeping, depression, anxiety, and more.
Taking a vacation every so often gives you a chance to escape all your normal stressors, relax, and rejuvenate your mind and body.
As anyone who has ever worked a 9-5 job can attest, monotonous routines are often a death sentence for motivation. When you break up your stale routine with a trip somewhere new (it doesn’t even have to be far), you’re able to recharge your brain and expose yourself to new perspectives and experiences.
Being on vacation gives you time to be mindful and reflect on yourself and your life, which often inspires creativity. The result? When you do return to your routine, you’ll be more motivated and more productive.
It’s difficult to devote time to your relationships—romantic, family, friends—when you don’t give yourself a break and leave some energy to put into them. Spending quality time with the people you care about, and even just with yourself, is crucial to your mental and emotional wellbeing.
Going on vacation with loved ones is an opportunity for you to nurture those relationships, check in with each other, and make memories together. When you spend time connecting with others, you end up feeling happier and more fulfilled in your daily life.
