Nobody in their right mind says no to vacation, although there are those people that say that they don’t have the time or money to make vacation part of their regular vocabulary. Not only is this a shame on so many levels, many people who claim that they have neither time nor money could probably make it happen by simply shifting their finances around a bit and standing up for themselves and what they deserve at work.
The argument is one that might be a bit complicated, but the fact of the matter is that vacation is very important and here are 3 reasons why it needs to become a regular pastime in your life, not just something you think about doing once every 5 years:
You Deserve Time For Yourself
If you’re like the majority of the world, you’re spending your life slaving away to realize somebody else’s dream. Have you ever thought about it that way? You have dreams of your own, but instead of being able to pursue them and realize them, you’re stuck underneath the thumb of somebody else’s passion and business. You’re capped in all capabilities. You can only make a certain amount of money, you can only rise to a certain position, and you’re doing everything for somebody else.
For this reason, vacation is necessary for you. You deserve to take the time to adventure to the place of your dreams and indulge in the pleasantries of life. If not vacationing is a matter of finances, work hard and demand a raise for your efforts and tighten up the budget on things that are menial.
You Need to Play With Reckless Abandon
People become adults too quickly these days. There is too much to think about and take care of. That’s understandable, and that’s life, but you need to be able to play in life, too. Vacation allows you to play with reckless abandon.
You want to swim and splash water like a child all the while getting drunk on margaritas and sliding down the waterslide at your timeshare? Go for it. Your stress levels will decrease, your happiness will increase, you’ll go back to work with a new passion and focus, and you’ll realize that this is what you needed the entire time.
You Become A Better Person
Traveling is proven to make you a better and more rounded person. When you experience the world and let go of your inhibitions and allow yourself to be impacted by what’s around you, you change. You come back home with a desire to make your world a little more like somebody else’s or you realize what you have and you live with more contentment because you have seen how blessed you are.
