Why it’s Time For a Vacation

Sometimes we are so busy taking care of everyone and everything that we forget about the most important thing: ourselves. Have you heard of the expression “you can’t pour from an empty cup”? When we take care of ourselves, it makes us a better person all around when it comes to everything else.

One of the best ways to get refreshed and reenergized is to take a vacation. Did you know a little over HALF of Americans don’t use all of their vacation days? Studies show that workers waste an average of SEVEN vacation days each year, just leaving them on the table. What is the point of working so hard all the time if you aren’t ever going to take a break or use that vacation time you have accrued? We say it’s time for a change!

Having a work-life balance will help you avoid office burnout while making room for meaningful time with family and friends. Where better to spend that time than the gorgeous Emerald Coast? People flock to sunny Florida all year and it’s easy to see why. The beaches of South Walton are stunning with soft, sugar white sand and emerald waters. While it is a popular vacation destination, you’ll find miles of beaches to explore that aren’t overcrowded. You can go to a busy beach restaurant in the heart of Destin or try a quieter area around 30A and Seagrove Beach. After a long day, you can book a massage at one of the many spas in the area or reserve a table at one of our fine dining restaurants. But don’t miss out on our famous sunsets. The sun setting over the water with orange and pink hues is breathtaking and can help you really remember what is important in life: not things, memories!

Garrett Realty Services, Inc. has a vast selection of luxury beach homes and condos that can meet all your vacation requirements. Use that vacation time you worked so hard for and come visit the Gulf coast!
