Next week is one of the most popular vacation weeks for Americans. Do you have one planned? No matter, you’re sure to see vacationing friends and family on Facebook and Instagram and to hear tales of upcoming and recently taken journeys in your workplace.
According to The Atlantic,
“…long breaks replenish job performance…vacation deprivation increases mistakes and resentment at co-workers… ‘The impact that taking a vacation has on one’s mental health is profound,’ said clinical psychologist Francine Lederer… ‘Most people have better life perspective and are more motivated to achieve their goals after a vacation, even if it is a 24-hour time-out.’
…breaks are better for our brains than overtime. Where you get your break — from an hour on blogs, a day in the park, or a week golfing at Martha’s Vineyard — doesn’t matter so much as that you get it.”
So if you work too much and/or your social life is suffering more than your career, let me help you determine your next productivity-boosting vacation. Bossy pants as it is, I happen to know someone who puts together amazing retreats (for women only…sorry, boys).
A professional traveler friend I made last year co-owns a company called Reset Retreat. (It’s Crystal, the gal in the middle of the pink shirts.) They have two Belize Reset Retreats coming up–one in early November which is a beach destination and one in February in the jungle (specific details are still being sorted). Each is complete with yoga, meals, opportunities to connect with the other guests, personality assessment, life coaching, therapeutic spa services, cultural immersion, adventure (to be sure with Crystal involved!), and a charitable component.
If you’ve been waiting for someone to tell you where to go on your next vacation, you’re welcome. (smile)
P.S. I have no affiliate or referral relationship with Reset Retreat. I’m spreading the word because I trust my clients will enjoy the top-notch experience.
