January 26th was National Plan For Vacation Day in the U.S. The holiday is a reminder for Americans to begin planning their annual road trips and vacations early enough to make certain they use all of their vacation days. Each year, billions of dollars worth of vacation days vanish because employees, for whatever reason, don’t use most of their time off.
Studies show that planning a vacation can be equally as beneficial to your health and well being as actually being on the vacation itself. The goal is to make a plan early, tell your boss that you’ll be taking the time off, and sticking to it. If you get vacation days, don’t be afraid to use them.
In this episode of Rediscover America, we share some tips on planning your next road trip and some advice on making your vacation a bit more relaxed.
