“Plan Your Vacation Day” is January 29
It’s time to begin planning your vacation to feed your soul. Jan 29th is Plan Your Vacation Day. Did you know we have studies showing you get a boost to your health and happiness from the moment you begin planning your vacation? Your mental and physical health improve when you start anticipating and planning your time off.
Get out of your rut and begin to dream and plan for your next adventure. You just got through the holidays, your holiday shopping bills are here, and you are in the midst of this cold, dreary winter. It is an excellent time for some dreaming and planning, and you get the health benefits from planning your next trip. Spring break, Easter week, Memorial Day and June, the vacation month, will be here before you know it.

Tickets are cheaper on Wednesdays, and there are discounts available for almost everything when you plan ahead.
The Prescription to Feed your Soul
1. Long or short
Do you want to take several small trips or a long-extended trip? You can extend your weekends with a couple of vacation days or save all your days for a nice, long, fun trip.
2. Road trip
How about a road trip? When was the last time you loaded your car and took off in a different direction filled with unexpected fun and surprises? There is nothing like a road trip across America to restore your faith in yourself, nature, our country, and human nature.
How about diving into history? It may be time for you to revisit some history you learned years ago. Is there a piece of history you wanted to explore first hand? Have you been to Washington DC, Mount Vernon or Monticello?
Do you need to nourish your soul with an adventure? You can take on a list of National or State Parks. Is there a sport you want to take lessons and experience such as snorkeling, surfing or snow skiing?
Is there a famous destination you’ve always dreamed of visiting? While planning your vacation think about a life-changing visit to Paris, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, San Francisco or New York City?
