Hidden Benefits of Taking More Vacation Time

Odds are pretty good that you’re working too hard. Without even knowing who you are, we bet you almost certainly could use a break. Americans are some of the hardest-working people on the planet, and while it’s great being ambitious and making every effort to take care of your family, sometimes you just need to take some time off. The good news is, you don’t have to feel bad about it. Squeezing in a little extra R&R has benefits that reach far beyond just getting away from work for a while, and with some of the best deals for vacations near Atlanta, Callaway Resort & Gardens has got your vacation time—and the related health benefits—covered.

An Important De-stresser

Working nonstop can drive a person crazy. Even if you think you’ve got everything under control, the work you’re putting in on the job can increase your risk of a heart attack or a stroke. Getting away for a few days with the family can greatly reduce that risk. Also, when you get back on the job, if you’re ever feeling stressed out, just meditate on those heavenly strolls through the famous gardens of Callaway Resort & Gardens, and you’ll feel your blood pressure drop almost immediately.

Load Up on Dopamine

The adventures you embark on while on vacation can give your brain a little extra dopamine, resulting in a small high. Riding your bike through the gardens or hitting the golf course with friends or family might be just what you need to get that little extra rush to see you through the work week. Need more excitement? Try the TreeTop Adventure Package at Callaway Resort & Gardens. If tackling an obstacle course complete with zip lines at dozens of feet above the forest floor doesn’t give you a dopamine rush, nothing will!

Spread Joy to Everyone Around You

Ever think that the reason work is stressful sometimes isn’t the job or the other people, but it’s you? It’s entirely possible that you’ve been the one to blame all along! Make it up to your coworkers by going on a vacation. After a long weekend in the Lodge at Callaway Resort & Gardens—and some much needed spa time—you’ll return to work in a much better mood, and that will put everyone else in good spirits as well.


Get in Tune with Your Bliss

Going on a vacation gives you a chance to find yourself. The time you spend quietly enjoying the gorgeous scenery at Callaway Resort & Gardens or connecting on a personal level with family while nestled by the fireplace in one of the resort’s cottages is irreplaceable. It positively impacts you when you’re home and working again and will tide you over until you can make it out of town for another glorious vacation.

Whatever your preference, Callaway Resort & Gardens has a package waiting for you. Visit us online and have your pick of several vacation packages from Atlanta for you and your family.
