Resolve to Have a New You in the New Year
At Least a Healthier, More Relaxed You
Perhaps it is time to follow New Year advice from a group of people that do tend to keep their resolution past January: timeshare owners. Studies show that there are undisputed, long-term benefits associated with taking regular vacations that contribute to better health, relationships and job performance. 2008 was the year of the “Staycation,” a new idea designed to make staying home sound like a good use of vacation time. Unfortunately, staying confined to the normal routines of daily life will not produce the long-lasting benefits of a traditional vacation.
“Put away the cell phone and laptop and disengage from the daily hassles of your life,” says John de Graaf, executive director of Take Back Your Time, an initiative encouraging time outside of work. “Our goal is to make 2009 the year we all actually take our vacations.”
Although Americans are experiencing tighter budgets, vacations should be viewed as a necessity rather than a luxury. Traveling with timeshare eases the necessity of vacation by taking the stress out of planning for one while accommodating every traveler’s desires. And, vacation ownership accommodations provide for better family time because people can participate in activities at their own leisure. Timeshare ensures this process will happen at least once a year, every year, which means a healthier, more relaxed life.
Everyone deserves a vacation in 2009, and not just a good one, but a better one. Go to www.VacationBetter.org to take a survey on your New Year’s goals.
