lake-superior1Be sure to share this with the boss – studies indicate taking a vacation isn’t just good for your mental health, it’s good for your long-term physical health as well.  Check out these three related stories from WebMD, Health.com & The NY Times respectively:

  1. A Vacation Away Keeps the Doctor at Bay
  2. Vacation: Good for Your Health, Good for Your Soul?
  3. Vacations Are Good for You, Medically Speaking

Armed with that information, now’s the time to start thinking spring break & summer vacation…

Of course, I’d like to recommend your next vacation be in Wisconsin!  More than just America’s Dairyland & the home of the Packers, Wisconsin features miles of shoreline (bordered by two Great Lakes + the Mississippi River), over 450,000 acres of state forest, and some pretty great shopping & museums too.  With beautiful hotels, relaxing resorts, blissful bed & breakfasts, charming inns and convenient motels, there’s something for everyone.  Start planning your next vacation today – it’s good for you!
