If you don’t already know, there is a growing number of Americans leaving their vacation days unused with each passing year. While that would be great news if the reason for it is that we felt like our jobs were a vacation, this is hardly ever the case. Work pressures and the general pressures of life are more to blame for this unhealthy trend:
The research highlights four main reasons for this aversion to vacations, all of which resonated with me both from my own career and from what I've read elsewhere. The bottom line is that this is, simply put, a fine kettle of fish. We're becoming vacation-phobic. Let's review the four explanations.
- Vacations sometimes cause (not reduce) stress. Twenty-seven percent of respondents felt they had "too many projects or deadlines" and 13% fear "the amount of work they'll return to." Read more at Forbes...
If you’re the kind of person that would find a long vacation unhelpful because you’d only get anxious about falling behind at work, you’re not alone.

Having a rough itinerary is also useful to help you stay on budget, since the number of places you choose to visit will to some extent also depend on how much you can afford to spend.
Not everyone can afford to spend thousands of dollars on each and every trip they take, so setting a rough budget before you do any other planning can help shape your getaway into something you're financially comfortable with.
