As Sunday night rolls around, many of us begin to experience the Monday blues. As a new week embarks, we find ourselves sitting at our desk Monday morning, guzzling numerous cups of coffee just to get through the day. During some point or another we all start day dreaming about being anywhere but work. Imagining yourself relaxing on a tropical island, far way from the “real world.” With the warm sun beating down on your face and a cold drink in your hand. I mean, what sounds better?
Many people wish they were enjoying a vacation, but never actually take one due to the expenses that comes along with it. According to Kelton Research, the average working American was left with 9.2 unused vacation days this year. This number is up from 6.2 unused vacation days in 2011. Almost half of the respondents said that they don’t use their allotted time because of their lengthy to-do list, job insecurity and tight budget. Taking a vacation should no longer be considered a luxury, but a necessity.
