Here's something that I did NOT know..and a bit surprising!  Research shows that people's attitudes are better in the days before a vacation than following one. Seems it's the anticipation of getting away that makes us happy. The moment we get back the unhappiness settles in again – and fast.



Researchers surveyed more than 1500 people and found that the majority got a big boost in happiness simply by planning a vacation.

However, following a trip, there was no difference in happiness between those who had taken a vacation and those who hadn't.

Basically, as soon as they returned to work, it was like they had never left.  To me I almost always need a 2-3 day vacation when I get back from a vacation, how about you????
