When this Good Question came on it’s funny because I think it was right around the time when Laura was getting ready to go on her vacation and somehow I lost track of it. It’s “Do vacations make us happier?”
I know for me, I LOVE the anticipation. Planning on what we’ll do and thinking about the weather and just dreaming about the getaway. Our favorite thing to do is take a week and rent a cabin or condo on Lake Superior at Grand Superior Lodge so we take most of our own food too. It’s just so nice and it’s so fun to get away.
But what do you feel like when you get back? Does it depress you? I’m happy with the get away but I’m also happy to get back home and sleep in my own bed. Use my own bathroom and stuff like that. I’ve never gotten depressed after a vacation. But, I will admit to worrying about the money we spent on some vacations that we shouldn’t have and now would have to tighten things up. I worried more about owing money. I was never depressed to come home nor did I feel “let down.”
How do you feel about vacations? What kind of trips do you like to take? Did you do family trips as a kid? How do you feel leading up to a vacation and how do you feel once back home? What’s your favorite part? The anticipation or while you’re there?
