“Google ‘vacation research’, and you’ll find all sorts of studies about how important time away is for your happiness, stress levels, and job performance,” says Cathy Wunder, Vice President at Global Discovery Vacations, a leading travel club based in Overland Park, Kansas. “We believe you have to disconnect in order to recharge.
