As we come to the end of this crazy, life changing year, I think a lot of us are feeling emotional and physically exhausted – as if we’ve run a collective marathon.  It struck me how important it is for us all to take a breather.  To consciously and intentionally relax and celebrate life.

I remember, some time ago, reading about how holidays (staycations included) are the best investment in happiness. Ian captures this sentiment and more in his talk today.  Not only do you have the sweet anticipation of time off, we obviously get to enjoy the actual holiday, and interestingly our memories of a holiday are enhanced over time.  It’s a win-win-win situation.

So use Ian’s formula to make the most of your downtime this festive season:

Anticipation + relaxation + capitalisation = maximum vacation happiness!
