5 Reasons why you should take 

a VACATION right now

5 Reasons why you should take 

a VACATION right now

By Monica Poling.

Travel is many things to many people. It can be a relaxing getaway, a high-octane adventure, a time to reconnect or a time to decompress. Unfortunately, it also frequently ends up as an unaccomplished item on yet another to-do list.

If you’re been toying with the idea of a getaway, here are some reasons we think now is the time for your getaway.

Find Your True North

Are you living the life you want? If your answer is “I don’t know,” there’s never been a better time to get away and explore how you want your life to be.

While #TrueNorth is an often-used hashtag to emphasize ideas and experiences that are uniquely Canadian, finding your own true north can help you define the ideas that are uniquely yours. Still, calibrating personal compass can be practically impossible when you’re crazy stressed, juggling three separate to-do lists, and averaging 400 incoming emails every 60 minutes.

Travel is about more than just getting away from the stresses of daily life. It can help you define what you really love and what you really hate, and help you navigate all the trail points in between. It gives you a chance to try new things and it reminds you of what aspects of your life are most important. If you really want to find yourself, grab a copy of Michael Hyatt’s “Creating Your Personal Life Plan,” take some time to chart out how you want your life to look, and then get busy by setting that plan into motion.

Change Your Perspective

Raise your hand if you’ve heard any one talk about the “weakened loonie” in the last 24 hours. Yup, news broadcasters (and even the people at TravelPulse Canada) just can’t resist discussing it. Then of course there’s plummeting oil prices. And now some economic headlines have started using the term “recession.” Fortunately, most indicate that Canada is not in one, but there’s always a silent “yet” lurking about. No matter when you tune in, or who you listen too, it seems as if the news is Not Good.

But you can’t allow yourself to buy into all this negativity. The Mayo Clinic has reported that positive thinking can produce a variety of health benefits, including increased life span, lower rates of depression and even resistance to illnesses like the common cold.

So give your brain and your central nervous system a break. Call Great Aunt Sally and tell her to pull out the clean sheets, because you need a day off. Once you’ve set off on your adventure, you’ll give your brain some breathing space and with it, the chance to remember that things aren’t so bleak after all.

It’s Good for Your Health

While travel can absolutely help you reduce stress, there are tons of other scientifically-proven reasons why travelling is good for your health. Check out this list of “Health Benefits of Travel” at the Flight Centre blog.

There’s always going to be a reason to put off travel. You’re too busy at work. People can’t live with out you. Who wants to deal with the piles of unanswered mail/email when you return?

But somewhere there’s a museum or beach or restaurant that you’ve never seen before and they need you too. They want you to visit. So get out and explore. It can quite literally add years to your life.

You Can Afford It

This not-totally-great economy does leave you wondering if really can afford a getaway. But ponder this. Canadians spend an average of $260 per overnight trip when travelling domestically, according to Destination Canada. With hotel rates in Canada ranging anywhere from $110 to $203 a night, there are plenty of bargains to be found. Of course, the majority of Canadians stay with friends or family when travelling, so that’s a viable option if you’re looking to save money. If, on the other hand, price is no object, just remind yourself that you deserve a getaway.

It’s Good for the Economy

Did you know that in 2011, all tourism spending in Canada (by international and domestic travellers) reached $78.8 billion? This spending accounted for nearly 2 per cent of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (“GDP”) and was responsible for creating/sustaining 603,400 jobs.

Do some elementary math and you’ll see that even a modest 1 per cent growth in tourism could generate nearly one billion dollars in new spending and help create about 6,000 new jobs.

So go ahead, pack your suitcase, update your travel apps and hit the road. Your country thanks you.
