Have we become so busy in our daily lives that it takes something called Project: Time Off to be created in order to remind us to take a vacation?? And that we need a whole day dedicated to remind people to #PlanForVacation? Unfortunately the stats they have collected are true and although they are based on American statistics, much of it will carry over into other countries as well. As a whole, people work too hard and are not taking enough vacation days to step back. There is more to life than paying bills. There is more to life than work.
“National Plan for Vacation Day”, celebrated on the last Tuesday of January, is a day to encourage individuals to plan their vacation days for the rest of the year at the start of the year.
“So much to do, so little time.”
A common adage and one I’m sure we all fall victim to claiming our busy lives, busy families, work, businesses, activities, school, etc…the reasons are endless. But while that may describe our lives how we see it, the reality is that there IS actually time.
As Canadians, maybe our stats are better than Americans in that we do travel and take vacations more often than Americans. I don’t know for sure as there is no specific research but I know from our long and cold winters, we NEED a warm vacation to escape winter every year!
So, I ask you, “Are YOU using up all of your vacation days each year?”
“What are your travel goals for this year and what can you do to achieve them?”
As with any goal setting, making it happen begins with proper planning and planning specific travel plans will help you stay motivated, stay within your desired budget and making it all possible. And if this sounds too overwhelming for you, think of the alternative; What would you be doing if you didn’t start vacation planning? Well, you wouldn’t be on vacation!
And we’re here to help! Travel agents are professional travel planners who plan vacations every day. It is our goal and our dream to plan your next vacation….with pleasure!
The benefits of planning a vacation extend beyond the trip itself. Trip planning is one of the most exciting processes to be a part of and with our expertise, we guide you, plan with you and make it all possible. Think of the moment you finally booked that flight, or made that deposit. Or when you receive that email from me that says, “Your vacation is booked!”
So exciting! And then it just gets better, and each day is one day closer to your travel day.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to take back your calendar and put vacation at the top of your list of priorities for this year. And now is the PERFECT time to think about what your travel goals are this year.
Planning for vacation can be achieved in three simple steps:
1.Determine how much time off you earn and identify the vacation policies at your workplace.
2.Get to dreaming! How do you want to spend your time off this year?
3.Plan out your days with our help. Don’t be afraid to dream big with travel! You never know how we can help you make it happen. And it may be easier than you think.
This year, don’t let your vacation days be part of a statistic. Put the fear of missing out behind you and turn your bucket list into a to-do list by starting to plan now.
