It’s post Labor Day. Here in the Northwest we’re heading for the rains, the dark, the gloom of winter. If you haven’t taken a summer vacation this year, chances are you won’t get around to it until next summer. Or even later. That’s a grim forecast.
Checking the weather channel yesterday for the 10-day forecast for Seattle, I saw a survey: “How often does your family take a vacation?” The results were so sad to see:
20.1% said they rarely take a vacation.
12.8% said every 2-5 years.
27.9% did say once a year, but it’s not certain for how long their vacation was.
The rest were more fortunate and vacationed 2-3 times a year for a short time.
I’m talking to YOU, if you’re someone who rarely takes vacations or once only every 2-5 years. Did you know that vacations are necessary to avoid burnout, to refresh, relax and renew?
Many of our Olympic Hot Tub customers tell us that they use their Hot Spring Spas for a daily vacation. When they can’t get away from home because of work or family obligations, they can at least go to their own backyard and take an hour to unwind and get back to center. There are no reservations to make, suitcases to pack, long lines to put up with. The hot tub’s right there ready 24/7 whenever they are. And, soaking in the hot tub always guarantees the same relaxing experience unlike many vacations!
If you’re one who doesn’t take many vacations and didn’t vacation this year, you need a hot tub NOW! It’s a stressful world out there. Taking the time to de-stress daily will give you multiple health benefits in the long run and, quite possibly, save your sanity.
