I know a lot of people are worried. The economy is in turmoil, gas prices are still high, and airlines have continued to raise airfares and tack on extra fees when you travel. You might think twice before booking a vacation this Fall. However, I’d caution you not to do that. Vacations are essential to our well being. Time off allows us to slow down, relax and recharge our batteries. Scientists have found that people who don’t vacation are more succeptible to heart attacks, depression and anger. So reconsider putting off that next vacation. You don’t have to go far to get away from it all.
