At American Power and Gas, President Jim Bridgeforth and CEO Tom Cummins are all about motivating employees. We all work hard at this company, and it does not go unnoticed. But what about taking  a break? Just as there are sayings of preserving to reach success, and achieving through embracing mistakes. It is important to relax and replenish in order to succeed. Self care, balance of life, and enlightenment through travel are crucial to a not only productive and creative life, but also a less stressful one as well. .  Today is international “plan a vacation Day” and we are excited to explain why you should totally go on a vacation!

Logical and Fun

Studies show that the reduction of mental and bodily stress due to lack of vacation is substantial. “A study was done on 13000 middle aged men at risk for heart disease and showed that the men who hadn’t taken a vacation in five years were 30 % more likely to suffer from heart attacks than men that had taken a week off each year” (pomeroy, 2013). Experience shows that vacations help reboot creativity. This boost comes from the separation form stress that we should experience while away from work. But creativity can also be inspired because vacationing, seeing new places, and learning about new cultures is neurologically stimulating.
