Your happiness elevates from the simple act of planning a vacation, and the effect of an anticipated vacation can boost happiness for eight weeks! A successful vacation can improve life satisfaction, mood, creativity, and relationships. It may also reduce health complaints, coronary heart disease, and risks of all causes of death. I’d rather die at work myself, not on vacation! ?
Now, the sad part…..after the vacation is over, your happiness will go back to your baseline levels. Some individuals returned to baseline as soon as they go back to work ??(damn damn damn – Martin Payne), and others experienced a higher level of happiness for two weeks. Those who experienced a higher level of happiness for two weeks did these things on vacation: relaxed, pleasurable activities, and savored the moment. ??
Where will you take your next vacation?
