Diamond Resorts International® -- Vacations for Life® -- Relaxation is Proven to Boost Creativity Among Adults and Children

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - March 28, 2016) - Despite the well-documented benefits of vacationing, US Travel Association claims that Americans are not taking enough time out of their daily lives. It is shown* that regular relaxation increases creativity, focus, and productivity in both kids and adults. The desire for taking personal time to recharge and rest is declining with businesses and individuals not taking full advantage of earned time off. An in-depth look at the impact of adults who sacrifice their time off found that workers are losing an estimated $52.4 billion a year* in benefits.

Vacations offer a chance for parents, children, young adults, and the elderly to truly escape and become reacquainted with their passions. Diamond Resorts International® offers destinations in 35 countries, providing travelers with various opportunities to explore the world. With so many location options, tourists can choose from a variety of different styles of retreats to combine rest and relaxation with family-favorite outings and activities. Diamond Resorts International® suggests remaining detached from electronic devices and unnecessary technology, preparing for stress-reducing activities such as swimming, hiking, or golf. It is also important for travelers to ensure positive experiences by preparing a trip that includes current hobbies and interests.

Many companies have invested in studies to research the effect of vacations, informing executives on the significance of incorporating mandatory Paid Time Off within their office guidelines. Global investor Ernst & Young found that people with more vacation time consistently improved their performance ratings*. Employees who spent more time relaxing outside of work were more effective, driven, and innovative at their job than their colleagues who did not. Many parents have noticed that frequent breaks encourage bonding and boosts creativity in their children. Family vacations also help to create a unique phenomenon known as the 'crescive bond', a shared experience that fosters enduring connections between individuals. Diamond Resorts International® has over 370 destinations across the globe, making it easier for Americans to visit new places and boost energy and creativity levels.
