The first seven months of 2020 have been unpredictable to say the least, and many of our spring & summer vacation plans were impacted by the pandemic in one way or another. Were you planning on celebrating a birthday? Taking an annual trip to your favorite vacation spot? Relaxing in the sun and spending time with your loved ones? Despite how different the world looks right now, here are 3 reasons why it’s still beneficial for individuals, and families, to set aside vacation time – and Jellystone Park™ Lakes Region is a great place to start.

Change of Scenery

Has it been a couple of years since the start of quarantine? It sure feels that way! Even though most of us are slowly heading back in the direction of our normal routines, there are still numerous COVID restrictions and guidelines that follow you everywhere you go. For months, we spent a lot of our days at home with not many places to go or people to see. Going on a safe vacation now offers you the opportunity to experience a change of scenery – even if you don’t go too far from home! “Staycations” are becoming the new norm in 2020 and prove that you don’t have to go far away to have a great time.

Time Spent Outdoors

There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors. Fresh air, beautiful scenery, and reconnecting with nature are all beneficial for both our mental and physical health. Whether you plan on taking a hike, or sunbathing on the beach – spending time outside is a great way to use your vacation time. Jellystone Park™ is an ideal location to spend ample amounts of time outside, while being able to practice social distancing during your getaway.

Nature

Unplug & Recharge

Disconnect from everyday life by putting down your electronics for a few days and you’ll head home feeling more refreshed and recharged than ever. Studies show that many adults continue to work while on vacation, but unplugging from work, social media, and more helps a vacation feel more relaxing. Instead of multitasking, you’ll be able to focus on being in the moment and creating new memories together.

 

If you’re thinking it would be easier to not use your vacation days this year – think again. Taking time to go on vacation is beneficial for your mental and physical health because you’re able to spend more time outside, unplugged and creating lasting memories. You don’t have to go very far to experience the benefits of taking time away – so get packing – you’ll be happy you did.
