A Fantastic Vacation = Increased Productivity at Work!
Did you know that a healthy vacation when you plan active and relaxing activities will result in increased creativity, experiencing new activities, reduce stress, and recharge your internal batteries.
I did a lot of research for this blog and the word that kept popping up was creativity. Most research articles report that time away from work boosts creativity which leads to increased productivity at work.
It all makes sense. If you don’t take a break from the task or project you are working on to problem solve, your brain gets no break from the path it’s on.
If you change up things and take a vacation with your family or friends, you’ll boost your creativity. When you are exposed to new and different things or maybe try something that’s out of your wheelhouse will also boost your creativity. Vacations are a great time to do just that – most people try a new activity or explore a new place on vacation. A creativity win!

Why is that?
