Need a vacation? You’re not the only one.
The stress of living with the pandemic for nearly two years has taken a toll on workers’ mental health. According to a study from Destination Analysts, more than two-thirds (68%) of American workers feel at least moderately burned out and 13% are extremely burned out.
This National Plan for Vacation Day, the U.S. travel industry is doing its part to combat the burnout blues by encouraging Americans to plan all of their days off for the year at the beginning of the year. We’re joining organizations across the country to share tips, planning resources, destination ideas and other incentives for Americans to get the most out of their earned time off. If you need some vacation inspiration, we have a ton of information on various destinations around the world.
Take some time on January 25 to dream of – and plan for – brighter days.
Change of Scenery
Americans have a vacation deprivation issue.
American workers left an average of more than four days or 29% of their paid time off on the table last year, but the majority of Americans (64%) say they desperately need a vacation.
To address this issue and encourage Americans to map out their travel plans for the rest of the year, the U.S. travel industry is celebrating National Plan for Vacation Day on January 25 with tips, planning resources, destination ideas and other incentives for Americans to get the most out of their earned time off.
It’s your vacation time: make sure you use it.
