Vacations are rarely better, often pushing us to stay on the go, leaving us feeling stressed and run ragged. Many of us are still working on vacation, checking email and responding to messages, ensuring we can never truly relax.
Before you plan your next trip, make it a point to plan an unplugged vacation. Your brain will thank you.
