We can't eliminate stress from our lives but the key is knowing how to manage it. Whether it's a demanding job, the kids' schedules, juggling being a parent, spouse, son/daughter, friend... we have so much on our plates that sometimes it's really difficult to not let the stress get to us. And, sadly, it can cause us to get physically ill, suffer from headaches, or to take out the stress on our loved ones on a regular basis.
So, the one thing we know for sure is we can't completely get rid of the stress in our lives but there are ways to help manage it. These daily routines are key - Exercise | Meditate | Deep Breathing | but for a more long term effect begin planning your next vacation!
Have you noticed the minute you start planning your next vacation your mood changes?
Research has shown planning a vacation increases your overall happiness. We typically get very excited just talking about our next trip and once we return we have that incredible ‘just back from vacation glow’. The good news is that excitement can last for a while even after returning from your trip.
Long lasting effects on your mood throughout the vacation planning cycle:
Many research studies have shown the benefits of vacationing: having more energy, fewer health complaints, and better life satisfaction. Research has also found taking a good vacation may not only benefit you but also those around you. Those good feelings you return with can spread to your work colleagues and loved ones.
The memories created while traveling will be treasured forever and there is plenty of research showing how travel and disconnecting from the day-to-day routine is so essential for your health. So, start thinking about your next vacation and see how it can help manage stress for you and your family.
