Reasons Your Life Feels So Busy

Although your might constantly feel pressed for time, it’s probably not accurate when you take a closer look at how your time is spent.

“You might assume the explanation was straightforward: we feel so much busier these days because we’ve got so much more to do. But you’d be wrong. The total time people are working – whether paid or otherwise – has not increased in Europe or North America in recent decades,” explains BBC. “Part of the answer is simple economics. As economies grow, and the incomes of the better-off have risen over time, time has literally become more valuable: any given hour is worth more, so we experience more pressure to squeeze in more work. But it’s also a result of the kind of work in which many of us are engaged.”

When people were mostly engaged in agriculture or manufacturing, they were forced to work without limits they couldn’t control. Crops can’t be harvested before they’re ready, products can’t be manufactured if you don’t have the necessary materials. But now most of us work in an office in front of a computer. There are no physical constraints on when and where we can work, so we feel like we should be doing it 24/7.

Unfortunately a never-ending pressure to be “producing” is terrible for our mental health, and in today’s increasingly sedentary culture, bad for our physical health as well. What’s the antidote? Taking much-needed time off from work to get out in the sun and move your body, of course!

Here’s are some tips and tricks you can use to escape to a Paradise Palms vacation home sooner than you may think!

Ways To Visit A Paradise Palms Vacation Home Despite A Crazy Schedule

Weekend Trips

A three-week vacation in Paradise Palms might be a little bit more than your schedule (and budget) can handle. But what about getting away for a weekend? Sometimes a weekend out of town can be enough to temporarily satiate your travel lust. Book a two or three night stay at Paradise Palms to restore your sanity and take a break from all the noise and chaos of your daily routine.

Leverage Holiday Breaks

Does your company give you a free paid day off for federal holidays and the like? Utilize these days as an easy way to make a weekend longer, especially when it may also mean that typical tourist attractions experience lower volumes. Most people visit friends or family for Christmas and Thanksgiving, so using these holidays as a chance to visit Paradise Palms will typically mean better rates and having the entire pool to yourself!

Build On Work Trips

Are you lucky enough to be attending a business conference or meeting a client in the Orlando area? Use this work trip as an excuse to steal a few days of fun in the sun. “Talk to your company and see if it’s possible to postpone your flight home for a few days, then get ready to play tourist. If you’re not interested in sightseeing in that particular location, find out what’s interesting within driving distance and rent a car,” suggests TripIt.

Just Say No!

The best way to make time for time in a Paradise Palms vacation home is to start saying ‘no’ to optional activities or obligations that might crowd out your time off. You don’t need to be in the church choir, work book club, and happy hour heroes meetup. Pick just one of these activities and say no to the rest because you want to be able to enjoy a luxurious vacation here in Florida with us!
