A Note from Ilana

Do you Vacay??

Turns out that as a nation we average approximately 47-hour work weeks, don't get adequate sleep and experience stress more often than not.  A deprivation study showed that the average Americans got 14 vacations and only took 12 of them compared to Europeans who get 22 paid vacation days plus 12 national holidays and they take them! (I'm moving!!)
Here are some reasons why a vacay is the footpath to health and wellness and what the benefits are to taking time off and focusing on fun:

Why you should replace your a.m. workout with a sunset run

The early bird catches the worm-but if there's one thing that can rival a warm-weather happy-hour buzz, it's a runner's high at the end of a long day.
Yes, it's time to rethink when you log your miles; especially now that it's summer (longer days FTW), hitting the asphalt in the p.m. has its perks.

Take Vacations for Stress Relief & Overall Health 
Vacations Are Important For More Than Just Fun... 

Many people don't take vacations often enough.  In fact, according to a poll on this site, around half of readers don't take annual vacations; in fact, many readers never take them!
