All Work, No Play – Are You Feeling Holiday Deprived?
On the fence about taking a break? Here's why taking that holiday is the best way to avoid burnout and rejuvenate mind, body and soul.
Ever thought to yourself, “I need a holiday”?
If that’s what you need – what’s standing in your way?
An estimated 52% of Australians didn’t use all their annual leave in 2017 and the reasons for this vary from being too stressed at work to stressing over planning the holiday itself. It has led to more workaholics who can’t sleep, eat terribly and never spend time with their families. This is unlike Wyndham Timeshare owners, who take regular holidays – as much as 2 to 3 times a year!
So, do you need a holiday or are you still making excuses like “I’m too busy to plan a holiday”, “I’ve got too much work to do” or “I don’t want to burden my colleagues with my work too”.
Oh yes! We have heard them all, and we believe it’s time to stop making excuses. In fact, with Wyndham Timeshare all these excuses won’t work. We make holiday planning simple and cost effective – and it can be done in advance. What’s more is that your entire family can come with, from your children to their grandparents too.
Good For The Whole Family
Still not convinced? The proof is in the science, and more so if you’re bringing your children. According to neuroscientists, when children are on holiday, their bodies release neurochemicals that bring down stress levels and release warm, fuzzy feelings. Why would children be stressed? It could be because you’re stressed and have less time to spend with them or give them your undivided attention when you’re pre-occupied with work. Think about it, if you’re not going on holiday, neither is your family. That’s pretty sad.
Now, just think of these activities – sinking your feet into sea sand, running on the beach, splashing in a pool and walking on a nature trail. It’s these precious moments that give children a sense of what family means and improves your bonding. Again, research points to improved brain development when children spend more time relaxing with parents. You never have enough time to do this in-between your weekly work routine. Everyone is busy in their own little world – with different interests, different friends and spending time in different rooms. But a timeshare holiday, brings the entire family together beautifully to create meaningful memories.
Research also points to the benefits that remain after a holiday. That mini-break or a longer one (yes, we’re pushing the boundaries here) can in fact change your entire outlook so you return to work refreshed and ready to take on those tasks with a positive attitude.
