Vacations make you happy 

The excitement for a vacation is a feeling like no other. When you’re happy, your body shows it, through lower blood pressure and a strengthened immune system. 

Exploring boosts dopamine levels

If you’re the type to wake up early and go for an adventure, your happiness levels will thank you! Dopamine provides you with feelings of enjoyment which happen naturally on a vacation when you’re exploring somewhere new. 

The memories will make you smile

Cornell University did a study on memories and found that spending money on experiences brings you more happiness over time than material items! Even the bad travel memories will bring you joy in years to come. 

Your creativity increases

Mental downtime means your creativity flows because there is suddenly room for new sensations. If you have a stressful job, your vacation time will be EXTRA important!

With this all being said, when’s your next vacation?!
