Vacations are important because they allow you to step away from real life. While many vacations allow for much needed relaxation, even those filled with adventure allow you to step away from the internet, cell phones and work emails. Even though you may feel stressed about returning to work after a vacation, the time away is still enjoyable and healthy.
Vacations give you time to spend with your family or friends…or even much needed alone time. Spending time with friends and family, or just by yourself, away from the pressures of everyday life can be very helpful and fulfilling. You won’t have to worry about about what people at home need – this is your time for fun.
Vacations allow you to indulge. Let’s say you eat healthy while at home. On vacation, you get to eat whatever you want, as long as you go back to healthy eating when you return to the real world.
Vacations let you try new things. On vacation, you have the opportunity for adventures like rock climbing and river tubing, which may not be available where you live. You should embrace these experiences and step outside of your comfort zone.
Vacations allow you to be a tourist. This is your chance to do silly, fun touristy things, like take pictures with landmarks and try local foods. Enjoy your tourist status – don’t hide it, and try to make the most of your experience.
