Find Rest: Weekend Getaways
Given the hustle and bustle of day to day life, many Americans are having to choose work or vacation. Let’s be honest: a lot of us “don’t even have time” for a week off. This article by Forbes explains “Only 25% [of Americans] said they use all their paid days”.
So what’s the cure? The weekend getaway. Recent studies have shown that short trips are even better than long vacations on a mental, physical and emotional level. According to psychologist Judy Rosenberg, PhD, “When we take many short vacation breaks, it gives us the opportunity to reboot”.
Facts are facts and it’s hard to take a quick trip if you don’t live close to a relaxing location. This is no problem for those of us in the in the Greater Augusta Area, where your reboot is just around the corner.
