One of my friends told me that she’s a big proponent of taking vacations on a regular basis. Relaxing is almost one of life’s requirements, but for us Americans, it’s hard to do. We may be leading in a lot of things in this world, but vacations are not one of them
. This causes a lot of stress, stress that is taken out on other people … mostly on social media, in my opinion, as keyboard warriors need an outlet since they are not taking any vacations.
The pandemic has had much to do with this lack of fun time. Between shut downs, lay offs, WFH with no work-life balance
, and … death and sickness … we need to start taking back our beaches and mountains and amusement parks. All this causes stress, too.
And then, being stressed out leads to more stress, which leads us to be stressed out at each other, which means we just have a lot of stressed out people.
You want a less stressed out world? Take more vacations, I say.
