In today’s busy world, it seems family vacations are some of the few times the entire family comes joins to spend time together and really connect over the course of consecutive days. And it’s not just that we’re busy – sometimes we’re just so spread out it requires travel and effort to see each other. So why not try a family adventure to a new place?
Whatever your situation, whatever the number of generations your family encompasses, the real benefits of a family getaway are endless. Here are some of the top reasons a vacation is worthwhile for your family:
1) It has been proven that experiences make us feel better than physical things. So if you’re contemplating new furniture for the living room or a family safari in Tanzania, take the trip. Your memories and satisfaction will last longer than anything you can buy.
2) Have you noticed there’s rarely an evening or day that goes by without someone in the family rushing off to a dinner, practice, game, or other commitment? Take a real break and unplug from the rest of the world, in a destination where your family can get to know each other well again.
3) Exploring a new culture and experience together will draw you closer to your family members than repeating a tradition you are familiar with.
4) There’s something for everyone on a vacation. This is time for you all together, but also time for everyone to relax from your own usual day-to-day whirlwind.
5) Break free of the schedule for a change. An itinerary ensures you accomplish some new things, but also can promise flexibility and options. After all, a vacation is supposed to relax and reconnect you all!
