Although the survey focused plenty on statistics related to lengths of vacation and the like, it also helped to show just how beneficial vacations can be. Over half of the American workers felt rejuvenated and refreshed when returning to work after vacation. Also, 34 percent revealed that they felt more productive and positive about their jobs right after a vacation. Not only does this benefit the worker, but it also helps the business they work for. Positive effects were felt at home too, as 53 percent of those polled said they felt a stronger connection to their families after being able to take some time off.

As you can see, neglecting to take a vacation can be counterproductive. While it may seem as if pounding the pavement at work shows plenty of dedication, it can reduce productivity and cause people to get burned out. A well-needed vacation does not only provide positive effects in the short term, though. As researchers reported in the Psychosomatic Medicine journal, a lack of annual vacations can prove to be deadly. That sounds extreme, but over a nine year period the researchers studied nearly 13,000 men. In the end, they found that those who neglected to take annual vacations had a higher risk of death.

The numbers from the aforementioned studies provide some solid evidence on the impact that vacations can have on our lives. They not only provide a break from the everyday grind at work, but they also offer time for reflection. If you reach burnout at work, that negativity can also be brought home, affecting friends and family. Taking a deserved vacation allows one to reconnect with those that are important. It permits the mind to rest, letting you come back refreshed and ready to go. You have one life, so you might as well enjoy it. Not only will you reap the benefits, but others around you will as well.

Are you now thinking about taking a vacation? Keep checking back for more lifestyle articles in the future that will give you some ideas on specific destinations you can visit to get away from the rat race.
