Why a Weekend Get-Away is Even Better Than You
Thinking about taking a vacation is often more overwhelming than exciting. A lot of things have to be planned and arranged to get away for a week or two. A three day vacation has so many benefits over a longer vacation. If you’ve ever been on the fence about taking a three-day vacation, here are several reasons why you should embrace it.
You Don’t Have to Spend a Whole Week Dreading Returning to
According to the Project: Time Off study,’ A fear of Retuning to a Mountain of Work’ was the
most common reason employees listed for avoiding vacation. We all know that vacations are supposed to be relaxing, but sometimes it’s hard to justify taking the time off when you have a busy work schedule. However, there are plenty of reasons to take a weekend getaway – even if it’s just for a few days.
One of the best things about a weekend vacation is that you can really relax and take your time without having to worry about getting back to work on Monday.
You Can Enjoy Multiple Mini-Vacations Throughout the Year-Not Just One Trip
If you're someone who loves to travel and explore new places but can't always take a lot of time off work, a weekend vacation is a perfect solution. You can pack a lot into a few days and see and do more than you would if you were only on vacation for a week. Plus, you don't have to use up all your vacation days at one time.
You'll Come Back Feeling Refreshed, In a Better Mood, and Less Stressed
There's nothing like a weekend getaway to refresh and rejuvenate yourself. Whether you're
taking a short trip to the beach or the mountains, getting away from your everyday surroundings can do wonders for your mental and physical health. Even just a few days of relaxation can make a world of difference when it comes to your stress levels and overall outlook. We all know how important it is to get enough rest, but sometimes it can be hard to find the time (or motivation) to take a proper break. If you’re feeling burnt out, a weekend vacation can give you the chance to catch up on some much-needed sleep and relaxation if you prefer,
New Surroundings and Experiences Improve Creativity
Being open to new experiences, people and places breeds greater creativity and can spark new, original ideas, according to a new study from a team of international psychologist. The more you experience new things, the more neural connections you're strengthening in your brain. The stronger those connections become, the easier it will be to come up with new, creative ideas when you need them most.
A Three Day Trip Is Much Less Stressful To Plan
If the thought of planning a lengthy vacation makes you break out in a cold sweat, then a
three-day getaway might be a better option for you. With fewer days to plan for, there ’s less
opportunity for things to go wrong. And, if you do run into any snags while you’re on your trip, they’ll be over before you know it. In addition to causing less financial stress, there are less moving parts to plan: whether it’s dog/child sitting or having someone water your plants, being away from home for a shorter period of time is a lot easier.
A Three Day Trip Is Less Expensive Than a Longer One
If you’re worried about the cost of taking a vacation, a three-day getaway can actually be more affordable than a longer trip. That’s because you won’t have to pay for things like airfare and lodging for as many days. And, if you’re traveling within driving distance, you can save even more money by avoiding expensive airfare. You can plan a weekend trip during the low season for your destination, plan around a city food festival, or an event you want to attend. It's easier to plan and stick to a budget for a shorter trip.
