Do Vacations Stress You Out?

Many people opt to take their much-needed vacation in the summer when work slows down a little. It seems natural like school letting out at the end of June. However, who would ever guess that a vacation from work could be more stressful than the job itself?

Vacations somehow turn into accomplishments: A series of goals to be met. Many people complain about the hours and hours of planning: The flight, the hotel bookings, the itinerary, the ground transportation, the meals and donít forget optimizing the deals! Then more often than not, the flight is delayed, the hotel room is not what you expected or not ready upon arrival, the food is making your stomach churn, youíre sleep deprived , the weather is not ideal and youíre not so impressed with the sights recommended in the tour books.

What can you do to stress less and enjoy more?
