Planning Ahead for Vacation Is Key

1. Make planning a priority

With schedules becoming more complicated with commitments, dates on the calendar, you’ll feel less stress at work, knowing you’ve provided the boss and co-workers with plenty of notice about your plans.

2. Longer vacations

75 percent of those who plan ahead were more likely to take a full week or more of vacation in a single stretch. Crafting a strategy in advance, be the first to claim vacation days around existing holidays and school breaks, creating a longer stretch for relaxation and enjoyment.

3. Bucket lists

Deliberate reflection of your values, hopes and dreams. So before you begin listing desired destinations, ask yourself what aspects of the world—geographically, spiritually and culturally—you want to share with your children, grandchildren and perhaps other friends and family members.

4. Celebrate milestone events

Celebrate birthdays, graduations and anniversaries can be an important touchstone and meaningful part of a family’s legacy.

5. Reap the benefits

Planners are happier with their health and well-being, their financial picture, their personal relationships and even their overall mood, according to the research.
