Work hard; play hard. It’s a balance most of us aspire to, yet few of us truly obtain. Expedia made this infographic to explain why our brain craves vacation time, and why it’s important. The infographic provides statistics on how hard the average person works (the majority work over 40 hours per week), and then details how vacations and time off can help to boost productivity, creativity and overall wellbeing. Vacation time, as the infographic explains, is a boon to both mind and body. And the benefits are not only short-term—helping you to recharge, but also long-term—helping to prevent disease and increase longevity.
