Can a Vacation Help Reduce Stress

By Angela Young

With the necessary planning, financial considerations and deadlines to meet when planning a trip, one may wonder 'can a vacation help reduce stress?' The answer is yes, but you will need to plan accordingly and be conscious of your focus when you arrive at your vacation destination. Even if your vacation time simply entails a few days off work and you plan to stay at home with the family, you will have the opportunity to regenerate and rejuvenate, and taking advantage can benefit greatly. By definition, a vacation is supposed to be stress-free, and there are a number of things that you can do while on vacation to reduce the amount of stress you experience from normal, every day life.

Plan to Reduce Stress

If you're main goal for a vacation is to help reduce stress, a major component will need to be handled during the planning. Make sure to gather funds, list out necessities and plan out a trip before arrival. A well thought out plan will provide organization and alleviate the potential for stress when your vacation begins. If you'll be staying home, take care of your chores ahead of time and make a brief list of activities that make your feel good.

Forget About the Office

Statistics show that a high percentage of people on vacation either work or engage in activities that resemble work. To reduce stress while on vacation, your focus should be relaxation. Select activities that are fun and fit well with your lifestyle, and make sure to keep a majority of your time open for calming activities, such as reading, meditating or sitting quietly. Studies reveal that a person must regenerate energy and engage in relaxation exercises regularly in order to meet the demands of life in a healthy way. Vacation provides free time to engage in these calming activities and using this time for work or tasks will defeat the purpose.
