Reading the news this morning I came upon an article from Country Living asking the question.
How long do you need to go on holiday for to feel really relaxed?
I can’t reproduce the whole article but below are some of the key points and findings. If you want to read the original there is a link below.
NOTE: American readers the word holiday in this article is used with the UK meaning. In the USA you would replace it with vacation.
When you’re planning a holiday, one of the main points to consider is how long you’ll be going away for.
Do you go for a long weekend, a whole week, or perhaps even longer?
According to scientific research, published in the Journal of Happiness Studies, there is a perfect length of holiday time which has the maximum beneficial effect on your health and wellbeing.
Researchers at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, set out to explore the effects of holiday length on health and wellbeing, and its relationship to positive aftereffects.
So what’s the perfect length? Longer than eight days. But there’s an interesting point to be made about the frequency of our holidays, too. Here’s why…
The experiment found that health and wellbeing increased rapidly during holiday time, peaking on the eighth day.
How long should you holiday for?
So, if you want to get the most from your holiday and feel truly rested and rejuvenated, try to have a break for longer than eight days, and fill your time with pleasurable and relaxing experiences to boost your health and wellbeing.
And, as the authors suggest, it may be more beneficial to take more frequent shorter breaks, rather than one long respite from work.
