Evidence proves that there are ways to make the happiness derived from our vacations last longer than the trip.
Planning Makes Perfect- It’s suggested that planning ahead adds an anticipatory effect to your trip. Choosing a place that is unique to your taste also makes a difference. Being on a budget is fine; any money spent on an experience allows the vacation to live on through storytelling and conversation.
Start to Finish- Start your trip the simplest and most relaxed you can manage. Studies show that people who remember their trips the fondest recall the beginning as being great. The same premise exists for the end of your vacation. Finish it off with a bang.
Research shows that the joy from “experience” is more meaningful and lasts longer than joy from a purchase. Hope it’s a great trip that lasts a lifetime!
