National Plan for Vacation Day
by Abbey

Did you know National Plan for Vacation Day is on January 31st? That’s right, a new year means a new vacation destination for your friends and family! As the temperatures drop and the snow starts to fall, we look out the window and start to picture the sand between our toes and smell the salty ocean air.

National Plan for Vacation Day serves as a reminder to plan out those vacation days, so you can have some rest, relaxation, and fun sprinkled into your rigorous yearly work and school schedule. Studies show that the average American leaves about 9 days of vacation time unused per year, resulting in almost 600 million overall vacation days wasted across the nation! Taking vacation days reduces stress, anxiety, and burnout – so it’s time to use those vacation days and get your tip to paradise planned!

But where to start? We can help with that. Here are some easy steps to start the vacation planning process:

Solidify how many vacation days you have from work and school – Contact HR to determine what your vacation days look like. How many do you have? Are they accrued or acquired upfront, etc. For school, look at national holidays, breaks, and school closings to see what weeks coincide.

Share your plans and coordinate calendars – Look at your year in a birds-eye view comparing
timeframes to the year prior. See if you can plot out important events, busy times at work, or certain activities that will keep you home. Schedule your vacation around those factors. Then, call your friends and family so you can share calendars and coordinate a time together for fun in the sun!
