Have you ever felt like you need a vacation from your vacation?
The stress of vacation.
If stress-relief and relaxation are your goals for your time away, often “getting away” can become a bigger headache all in and of itself. Before you set foot in your chosen locale, there’s often endless hours of planning, packing, and prepping for you and the family to be all set to go. And while on vacation, many of us are guilty of overstuffing our trips with as many activities as possible.
It’s no wonder then, that 50% of Americans polled said they need two days to unwind after returning from their vacation, and 50% need more than two days, according to a study from the Families and Work Institute.
Then there’s the cost:
According to an American Express Survey, 31% of traveler plan on spending more than $1,000 per person for a week long family holiday. That means that a family of four could be looking at spending at least $4,000 for a quick getaway.
What’s The Lesson Here?
A relaxing escape does not have to mean jetting off to an exotic locale. Instead, build the perfect escape at home, and find refuge in it every single day. By investing in a long term, permanent place at home to break your routine, relax, and refresh your body, you’ll be able to enjoy the euphoria of a vacation escape, as part of your daily ritual.
So this summer, instead of stressing over how to find the time and money to plan an extravagant vacation, spend some time playing closer to home.
And remember, a high-quality hot tub not only adds to your daily well-being, it can also add to the value of your home, and provide the perfect centrepiece for a dream backyard makeover.
