Research proves that Americans who take time to plan how they will use their vacation time in the year ahead are happier than those who do not. Simply having something to look forward to—like a vacation—improves your happiness. But nearly half of American households fail to take the simple step of planning their time off, a step that can be made much easier by having a timeshare.
Here are some simple steps to make sure that you don’t make the mistake of not using all of your vacation time:
First, confirm your paid time off benefits. Don’t take someone else’s word for it, confirm what you have available by asking your manager or HR director. After this is accomplished, the next important step is to review your calendar for the year to see when you could actually take a vacation.
Now, the fun part: this is where your dreams and goals come in. What are you going to cross off your bucket list this year? Where have you been wanting to travel? What are you dying to try? You don’t necessarily need to know what you’ll do with every vacation day—just plan the days off now. Getting it on the calendar is what matters most.
Finally, it is time to talk with your boss and colleagues about your plans to take time off. But don’t be anxious: nearly all senior business leaders believe vacation time benefits their employees – and the company.
It’s time to stop feeling guilty about trying to take a vacation each year and remember there are many health and wellness benefits that come along with an annual vacation. You work hard all year, you deserve to have some well-earned, time off. With a timeshare you are ensuring that you take a vacation each year since it is already prepaid!
