Taking a long vacation entails many benefits for your overall health and well-being if you’re willing to plan, pack, and walk away from the deadlines that will still be here for you when you come back home. You know you’ll come back at them with a brighter attitude and a boosted productivity.
But not all of us have the lifestyle or the job requirements that often allow us to take a relatively long getaway. This is why sometimes taking short weekend trips or getaways can be as beneficial as taking a long exotic vacation for you.
Requires less planning.
Unlike flying across the globe for what can, and, probably will be an unforgettable vacation, you can plan a weekend away with your local friends in a fraction of the time you need to plan a travel. Don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to put off the Euro-trip you’ve been dreaming about for a weekend at the beach. But you don’t have to become cynical for months until taking it. So call a bunch of friends and head off to a new destination.
You’ll be surprised by what your country has to offer.
Most of us think we’ve seen it all in our countries, so we just associate everything fun and new with a completely unfamiliar place. But that’s not the case. In your home country, each day new places open their doors, new resorts are built, new activities emerge, new adventures can be planned, and best of all, you can just hop in a car for a road-trip that will recharge your batteries for the next week.
Less time required to reintegrate into society.
A shorter getaway does not leave you with the shock you get after you return from a long trip to find the social groups at work and at home existing in the habitat that you have to inhabit for the next week. You embrace it, and you look forward to the week’s challenges in a more mindful and joyful attitude.
Your friends are more prone to taking shorter getaways.
Let’s face it, time passes, people drift apart in their demanding lives, but a weekend away sometimes is all you need to retouch a part of you that’s only reflected with the mirror that your friends offer. Call your homies and loved ones, and drive off to a new place.
