Spring is upon us and that means it is time to travel! There’s nothing worse than the feeling you get when you’re sitting inside and staring out the window at the beautiful weather, knowing you can’t go out and enjoy it. That’s why we want to give you the push you need to take that much needed vacation. All work and no play doesn’t make for a happy camper or a productive one. Yep that’s right - Taking a vacation isn’t just fun, it’s good for your health! It is important to give yourself time to clear your mind and recharge, outside of your daily routine. Let us help you plan the perfect spring break vacation on a budget that you can afford to put that spring back into your step.
If taking a long vacation just isn’t in the cards, try finding a few long weekends when you can get away from the craziness of your life. While it is great to get away for an extended period of time and really let go of everything, taking shorter vacations gives you something to look forward to throughout the year. Finding a hotel where you feel comfortable and know what to expect every time will help with your relaxation. Best Western thinks it is important too, which is why they reward you for staying with them on more than one occasion. Meaning if you stay at one of their hotels two times before May, you will receive a $25 Best Western travel gift card! With hotels all over the country, you will never have to worry about not knowing where to stay. So hit the beach while staying at Best Western San Diego or take a nap at Best Western Chicago after indulging in some deep-dish pizza. Wherever your life adventure takes you, Best Western hotels are there to make it an amazing experience.
Have you been extra snappy towards your coworkers or burning the midnight oil too many nights? Those are just two signs that it might be time to take a break. Aside from hurting relationships with those around you, working yourself into the ground can be extremely detrimental to your health. It is proven to make you more stressed and tired, while also directly impacting your physical health (think stomach ulcers, heart disease, and depression). If that already doesn’t have you packing to do some traveling, how about that you are giving away time that you have earned? You work hard day after day for those benefits your company provides. Not using them is just silly. If you are just simply nervous about taking time away from work, here are a few ways you can use your vacation to boost your performance:
Hopefully we have inspired you with a few reasons why taking a vacation is so good for you, but we only just scratched the surface. Make it your mission to take a break for a few days this spring and book some last minute travel excursions with Best Western. You’ll thank yourself...we promise!
