Need A Sleep Vacation? — This Is For You.
Sure, planning a trip to an exotic getaway sounds like the most relaxing thing you can do right about now BUT, have you ever heard of a SLEEP VACATION? It is exactly what it sounds like — a vacation exclusively for sleep and rest. According to sleep.org,
“More than 70 percent of people use at least one vacation day from work a year to catch up on sleep and 40 percent take five or more days away from work to do it”.
Think of all the late nights, early mornings, and all-nighters you’ve accumulated throughout the year. Although you can never repay your “sleep debt”, you can take a well-deserved break and do absolutely NOTHING on your next trip. Don’t worry, we won’t judge you. In fact, here’s some insight on why we need sleep, where to go when planning your long-awaited sleep vacation, and the essentials to for an at-home getaway.
WHY “CATCHING UP” ON SLEEP IS SO IMPORTANT
Good sleep is known to improve your concentration, productivity, and overall quality of life. While your body and brain are working hard to keep you moving from one thing to another all day, everyday, they’re actively thriving from a healthy balance between work, play and rest. Like I said before, you’ll never be able to pay off your “sleep debt,” but catching up on sleep can provide a chance for you to get back into the groove of more consistent nights of sleep that your body’s been waiting for.
