Americans may not take all their vacation days … but that doesn’t mean we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about those vacation days. New research revealed that Americans spend 284 days of their life dreaming about being on vacation -- and we spend more than 113 hours every year thinking about being on a beach somewhere. And your vacation pics on social media make people jealous. The study found that every day, the average person sees 2.4 vacation pictures on social media that make them jealous. That’s probably why 36 percent of Americans admit they put those vacation pics on social media to show people how great their lives are.
And here’s why we should take those vacation days … The study found that 52 percent of Americans say “relaxing” is their top priority when it comes vacationing, 71 percent say they smile more on vacation, 69 percent say they laugh more, 71 percent say they feel less stressed, and 25 percent say they even exercise more while on vacation.
