Challenge Myself: Day #92 Take A Vacation

Today is Day #92 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says go on a vacation every year!

OMG!!!! Todays challenge is for me I know it!!!!! We haven't been on a real vacation since 2008. We definitely can use one. We used to take yearly trips to the beach and the last time we went was in 2008. About as close to a real vacation I've gotten over the past few years is opening up a box of Calgon and begging, "take me away."

We went camping a few times last year and once this year. So, yes we need a vacation!

The book says,

Take your vacations; they're good for you. One study found that the risk of heart attack decreased in middle-aged men who regularly took an annual vacation.

Even so, roughly a third of Americans who have accrued vacation time don't take all of the time they are allotted. Vacations can restore balance between work and the other areas of your life by providing relief from the relentless pressures of work commitments, schedules, and deadlines.

A vacation can provide much-needed rest, recovery and renewal, but vacations can also create stress. Make sure to factor in some vacation days just to hang out, sleep, and rejuvenate yourself if you want to return to work feeling happy and recharged.

I need a vacation to vacate from all of this!!!!
