The Best Vacations Run 2 to 3 Days
Vacations are supposed to give a person a break. Regardless of whether a vacation is spent going to another place or just relaxing at home, I typically don't let it run more than 2 to 3 days, or if going away internationally, no more than 1 to 1.5 weeks. It may seem short, but in fact, it is just right.
That amount of time should give you just enough of a break to relieve some of the stresses of everyday happenings, while still making it manageable when you return to work or your everyday activities.
