Day 8 of my 10 Days to a Happier you series:
Day 8 is: Plan a trip – even if you can't take it!
In fact, the planning of a vacation can actually make you happier. than actually taking one!!
There is a great study in the journal, Applied Research in Quality of Life that showed the highest spike in
happiness came during the planning stage of a vacation and not during the vacation itself...I think it is the anticipation!!
Isn't it great that even if you can't take the time for a vacation, you can still get the happiness benefits just by planning and dreaming about it!
visualizing yourself having fun, without going through the stress involved in actually making it happen, can make you happier
