Vacations are the Best Medicine

Research suggests that vacations may have mental, physical, and emotional benefits.

Vacations are the best therapy.

When you think of taking your family on vacation, you probably think of where you’d like to go, what memories you’d like to make, and how great it ’ll be to just get away.

Good news: The benefits go way beyond that. Here are some reasons to book that family trip you’ve been considering.

1. Better Job Satisfaction

Taking vacations offers new experiences, fresh perspectives, and inspiration. Research suggests that those who take regular vacations have greater job satisfaction — and it shows in their output.* Time away can create a ripple effect of positivity on your work.

2. Boost Your Bottom Line

Using your vacation days also suggests some positive financial results. According to the Harvard Business Review, people who took fewer than 10 vacation days per year had a 34.6% likelihood of receiving a raise or bonus in a three-year period. For those who took more than 10 vacation days? The chance of a raise or bonus increased to 65.4%.* It really does pay to get away.

3. Be More Productive

Vacations — even when they’re packed with activity — give us rest, mentally and physically from the daily routine. When you’re recharged, health and productivity improve. This debunks the idea that when you work more, you produce more.*

4. Prevent Burnout

Of all the reasons to take a vacation, there’s one that can impact every aspect of life: preventing burnout.** When the grind is the same day-in and day-out, it can add stress, reduce happiness, and damage morale. On the other hand, when your days include the anticipation of a vacation, creating family memories, experiencing new adventures, and looking forward to the journey, you’re staving off burnout and protecting what really matters in life.
