Did You Know?

The U.S. Travel Association highlights the importance and benefits of why taking time off is essential to your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Research shows that more than half of workers in the United States do not take their full allotted vacation days, meaning that roughly 662 million vacation days have gone unused in previous years. Can you believe that? Although we are slowly improving at taking our well-earned vacation days, the Travel Association states that less than half the time Americans take off is used for travel. Come on, guys! Also, The Association clarifies that traveling is the best way to increase your happiness with your job, relationships, and how you spend your days off - so start planning early! In order to bring awareness to the workaholics across America, The U.S Travel Association has declared Jan. 25, National Plan for a Vacation Day!
