Taking a break from work every now and then can ease stress, boost your mood, and foster good health. So spend some time today planning your ideal vacation day. Resist the urge to use your time off to catch up on errands and housework. Plan fun and relaxing activities instead. Research suggests that the more active and stress-free your day off is, the more health benefits you’re likely to get from it. You might want to plan to go on a hike or attend a yoga class. You might want to spend a few hours on a favorite hobby. You could read a good book or check out a new movie. Or you may want to explore a museum or art gallery.
