Vacations are good for you
In a report called Travel Effect on BlackHealthMatters.com, we hesitate to get away because the pile of work will be horrendous when we return.
--Or we think we will look like slackers.
--Or we feel guilt when not working.
--Or we think we are indispensable.
Yet, rested employees are more productive and happy.
AND--Fewer vacations have also been linked to more heart attacks.
We should not be a no-vacation nation.
Even workers who take 3-day weekends are healthier.
If you can't afford a two-week vacation with the whole family, walk on your lunch hour. Leave your phone behind.
And remember--planning the vacation is also stress relieving--the benefits begin eight weeks before you leave.
Saying all this, I can never go anywhere because of my mobility and financial issues. Audiobooks are my getaway.
