All people who are tired of their routine and are planning a vacation face the same question: how much time to give themselves to relax. Usually, tourists are guided by various factors such as budget, available travel days, travel time, etc., but often find that they do not feel rested at the end of the trip.

More than 10 years ago, experts researched how long people need to take a break from work on average and provided basic advice. Over time, this data has not become outdated, and in 2024, it has become even more relevant than before, as The Washington Post writes.

One of the conclusions reached by experts in various fields concerns the number of vacations. Tourists are advised to take several short breaks rather than planning one long trip.

According to observations, vacationers feel their best on the 8th day of their vacation from work, opening up opportunities to relax several times a year.

Travelers are advised to set aside at least 5-7 days for themselves to relax, excluding travel. Depending on the time you have to spend on the trip, you should adjust your vacation dates.

The type of vacation also affects the condition of tourists. People who spend 5 days lounging on the beach and sipping cocktails feel more relaxed than, for example, vacationers who take tours and spend time exploring sights, engaging in activities, and creating new adventures.

Experts recommend allocating 10 days for long-distance travel and 5 days for short trips. Additionally, you should ensure that your vacation doesn't become a routine, as it can make it harder to readjust to the work schedule.

To make the most of your time away from home, you should address all work and family matters before you leave. Unfinished projects and errands can impact sleep and leave vacationers preoccupied with work issues, hindering mental and physical recovery.

No matter how unusual it may seem, tourists are advised to do everything they can to distract themselves from future plans while traveling. Observing others, their feelings, and new experiences will positively impact tourists.

Another tip that can be useful for vacationers is to leave a free day before the work week. This time will be enough to unpack and rest after the trip, which will be a good end to the vacation.
