Why Vacations are a Necessity

Did you know that vacations are not as much of a luxury as they are a necessity? When you work all the time, it is essential to take time off to relax, relieve stress, and refresh. Stress is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure and heart disease. Everyone needs time to forget about problems and take the time to just enjoy themselves.

Go to a Favorite Place

When you think of vacationing, what visions automatically pop into your head? Is it the beauty of the mountains or relaxing by the ocean? Your vacation destination should be a place that makes you happy and provides an atmosphere that is conducive to rejuvenation. If you are dreaming of days spent lying on the beach and evenings watching beautiful sunsets over the ocean, rentals on bald head island offered by Sea Breeze Rentals might be a good choice.


Maybe your favorite childhood memories of vacations include camping in the mountains and enjoying the scenic views and the sounds of nature. Returning to a place that evokes these memories can be one of the best vacations you have had in many years. There is just something about enjoying the simple things that were part of childhood that can provide happiness and a sense of well-being that lasts long after the vacation is over and you are home.

Vacations Create Bonds

Taking time off to spend time with loved ones can aid in creating bonds. Your partner and children may feel that there is no time to spend doing things together that are just fun. Perhaps all they see is you taking off for work each morning and returning exhausted at the end of the day. It is important to allow time for doing things on the spur of the moment and forgetting about responsibilities for a little while.

These are just a few of the reasons that vacations are good for your sense of well-being in addition to your health. It has been shown that people feel more relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to face work responsibilities when they vacation and spend time away on a regular basis.

Another sad reunion

My husband and his older brother will be flying Saturday morning to General Santos City to attend the burial of their father who died last week due to a lingering illness and old age. Their youngest sibling said their father died in his sleep.

My parents-in-law

It will be a sad reunion for my husband and his siblings. They were reunited six years ago for the burial of their mother in 2010.

I’ll start packing a few shirts and pants for hubby today so he still have more time to do other important things before going to the airport. If time permits, hubby might still look for flying v guitar before leaving for Gensan. One of his nephews wanted the guitar so badly but could not find anything like it from the local music store.

If not for the expensive airfare we could be flying with hubby on Saturday, sadly my kids will never see their grandfather one last time.
