Take More Vacations

1372Americans typically get 14 vacation days a year, but on average, only use about 10 of them. Skipping vacation time can lead to burnout at work, cynicism, mental fogginess, and even physical pain. Signs that you are overdue for a vacation include stress overload and an inability to cope with stress, chronic upset stomach, and troubled sleep.*

Make the most of your vacation time and take an extra day off the next time an extended holiday weekend rolls around. If you can’t afford to travel somewhere exotic, consider a stay-cation where you can explore your own hometown and leisurely enjoy the comforts of home.
