Holidays are Important for Families
Whether your household consists of two people, three people or more, holidays can benefit your family in so many ways. If you are contemplating travelling with children, looking to build stronger family bonds, or simply looking to create new memories – holidays are the perfect solution!
Holidaying with Children
Did you know that holidays are vital for families, especially those with children? Many people may not enjoy travelling with small or young children; however, children can have new and unique experiences while learning about the world around them, and thus, these children become open-minded. Holidays also allow families to spend more uninterrupted time together without the distractions of everyday life. Holidays also boost the confidence of children and their parents.
Holidays are a great time to unplug as a family and spend some much-needed quality time together. We understand that most families “spend time together” by staring at various screens – a television screen, computer or laptop screens, tablet screens or even cell phone screens. However, by turning these devices off during a holiday, families can come together and spend quality time together. So use your next holiday to escape the ‘busyness’ and fully engage with your loved ones. Take the opportunity to talk to each other about future dreams and goals.
Memories over things
What makes a vacation is not necessarily the destination, but the memories you create as a family. Did you know that “experiential gifts produce greater improvements in relationship strength than material gifts.” as published in the Journal of Consumer Research. Instead of gifting loved ones with things, plan a special holiday and give them the gift of everlasting memories.
Holidays are Great for Your Career
Did you know that going on holiday is beneficial to your career? By taking time off, you can enhance your concentration, boost your motivation, and even improve your mental health. Holidays also reduce the likelihood of experiencing burnout. Taking that much-needed time off will actually increase productivity as employees return to work refreshed and end up working more efficiently. To have a successful career, people believe that they need to chain themselves to their desk, which is not the case. You cannot produce effective results with massive bags under your eyes – at some point, your productivity and energy will suffer. Here are a few reasons how going on holiday can positively affect your career:
- Increases productivity, workplace morale and employee retention
- Influences creativity
- Employees are energized when they return
- Holidays affect your overall happiness
- Improves concentration
- Increases job satisfaction

Holidays Boost the Economy
The travel and tourism industry plays a critical role in strengthening the economy. By attracting domestic and international guests and encouraging them to explore the surrounding areas, we can boost the economy and create jobs for locals. When people go on holiday, they spend money on accommodation, dining, and attractions which benefit local businesses and the surrounding community. After surviving through the coronavirus pandemic, every economy has taken a significant knock – especially the tourism industry. Your holiday can benefit not only yourself and your family, but also others – too! Numerous families have lost their livelihood due to the closing of the tourism industry. By going on holiday, you are helping to boost the economy. Right now, going on holiday is truly a selfless act!
