How Long Does A Vacation High Last?

Do you go on vacation, have a blast and quickly fall back into the humdrum of daily routine and stress of work? Well, you’re not alone.

A
study done last summer by a few German universities found that while vacationing is good for a person’s overall health and well-being, the relaxation effects of a vacation may quickly fade. Though you may catch up on sleep during your vacation, after a week back at work, you quickly fall back into a routine of being overtired and stressed. However, the study only focused on winter vacations and on people who went skiing (or other winter-time sports). What would the results be if the study focused on folks who went to a beach for a week and did nothing but relax on a sandy beach with a book? Studies have shown that vacations in warmer climates may make people feel better and more relaxed.
