3 Reasons Why You Should Book Your Summer Vacay Now
Us entrepreneurs are all guilty of pushing so hard to reach our goals that we sometimes forget to be present and enjoy the moment. There's a reason why everyone's talking about mental health issues. As important as it is to work towards your dreams, it's equally vital to take time for yourself to recharge. Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn't feel guilty about booking your summer vacay now!
1. Spending time with loved ones is priceless.
What better way to spend quality time with loved ones than on vacation? Studies prove time and time again that those who spend time with the people they love are happiest. I cherish the summer weeks I get to spend in New York and aboard Utopia IV with Amber and the grandbabies creating unforgettable memories.
2. Your brain needs a break.
Vacation time allows our brains a much-needed break to recharge and reboot. A new, relaxing environment provides an ideal setting to clear your mind for brainstorming new ideas and identifying solutions to any business problems. People who don't take vacations are more prone to obesity, insomnia, stress, irritability, and poor decision making. Those who take an annual holiday boost their productivity thanks to a more optimistic mindset.
3. Health is wealth.
Vacay vibes are instant positive vibes which wash away the daily stresses of life. De-stressing once a year is critical to allow yourself the mental space and clarity to get back to work with a rejuvenated mind, body, and attitude.
A vacation doesn't have to be a luxury all-inclusive stay which drains your bank account. A camping trip, regular weekend getaways or a staycation are just as effective. The most important aspect is you find a place where you can switch off.
