Start Your New Year Right: Plan a Beach Vacation!

Need something to look forward to in the new year? 

Plan a vacation! Studies have shown that the simple act of planning a vacation can give you a real boost! 

According to NationalGeographic.com,


"Planning and anticipating a trip can be almost as enjoyable as going on the trip itself, and there’s research to back it up. A 2014 Cornell University study delved into how the anticipation of an experience (like a trip) can increase a person’s happiness substantially—much more so than the anticipation of buying material goods."

But ... why a beach vacation? 

There are several reasons that a beach vacation is the right choice.
