Travel and Vacations

Best travel arrangements: Several links offer hundreds of travel sites and deals. In my experience, the cheapoair and webjet websites have been shown to produce the best fares, although it is worth checking multiple air travel websites. The website Couchsurfing is a volunteer-based worldwide network connecting travelers with members of local communities who offer free accommodations and advice. The website Tripit aids you to get organized and build your travel plans and itinerary. At SeatGuru.com you can find seat layouts and ratings for 720 different airlines flown by 100 different airlines--the authoritative source for cabin information to outsmart the airlines to get the best seat and precious inches in coach. Also watch the video that details some of the benefits available in getting the best seat in the plane.

Is America the No-Vacation Nation?—Most American workers only get two or three weeks off each year, much less than the six weeks of vacation typical in Germany. In Australia, Japan and more then two dozen other nations, employers are required by law to give their workers at least four weeks paid vacation. In Finland, Brazil and France, workers are guaranteed six weeks of vacation every year! Employers in the U.S. are not obligated under federal law to offer any paid vacation, so about a quarter of all American workers don't have access to it. This makes the U.S. the only advanced nation in the world that doesn't guarantee its workers annual leave! What are the consequences of no time off? Vacation time can be one of the best ways to rejuvenate yourself and actually increase job performance and productivity as well as help relieve stress and burnout while leading to a generally happier workforce at least in the short run.

Vacation science: Vacations and happiness—Recent 2010 studies show your vacation will likely make you happier, probably healthier, these benefits start weeks leading up to trips and tend not to last very long. Another research study found that vacationers who rated their holidays as "very relaxed" had significantly higher degrees of happiness for the first 2 weeks after the vacation. The implications are pretty straightforward: prolong the anticipatory phrase by making vacation plans well in advance, do your best to keep the vacation spirit alive and well upon returning for as long as possible, do you best to make your trip very relaxing, take multiple short trips, and upon returning from a vacation start the planning on your next vacation right away. Who knew there was a science to enjoyable vacations?

Poems by Jelaluddin Rumi: He founded the Mevlevi Order of dervishes, better known as the Whirling Dervishes of Sufism. The Dervish uses body posturing, a turning movement, mental focus, and sound to achieve ecstasy through union with God. Rumi's poetry evokes the very same.
