November 1 is National Stress Awareness Day, and we want you to be aware of just how damaging stress can be, as well as a top way to combat it: going on vacation!
According to the International Stress Management Association, stress manifests itself as a physical, psychological or social dysfunction resulting in individuals feeling unable to bridge the gap with the requirements or expectations placed upon them.
There’s good news: taking a vacation is a great way to combat stress! According to Project Time Off, workers who take their vacation days report feeling significantly less stressed than those who leave their time on the table (68% to 74%). Additionally, those who plan their days off report feeling “very” or “extremely” happy with their relationships, health and well-being, company, and job.
People who take vacations measure improved stress regulation, immune function, and other improved cellular markers in the blood, reports a study by the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at Mount Sinai in New York. That’s good news for timeshare owners who have a vacation on their calendar as a priority year after year.
Since you’ve got vacation in the same week every year, you’ve got something to look forward to, and a guaranteed stress reliever, year after year. Not only do timeshares offer the consistency of vacation, they offer ease in planning and flexibility. Take the stress out of planning where to go and what to do when you get there. Meet the family at a get together every year, or use it for a girls’ weekend. The options are all yours.
