I did just take 3 nites and 4 days away and I thought that I would come back refreshed with a new outlook but it hasn't happened yet. I guess I have to start with the fact that my disabled husband went with me and he is just getting weaker and weaker all the time and cannot help himself very much anymore and then I came home to a sick Mom whom I am caregiver for along with my 89 year old Dad. Anyway my vacation hasn't helped much so I guess I need to help my spirit.

God grant me the patience, knowledge and understanding to do the things I need to do.

Take a Vacation from the Blues
Health News Flash
-- By Leanne Beattie, Health & Fitness Writer

A recent study by researchers at Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin has confirmed that women who frequently take vacations are less likely to become tense, depressed or tired and are more satisfied with their marriages.

Researchers studied 1,500 women and compared psychological stress, quality of marital life, and disruptive home life due to work. Nearly one in five participants reported taking only one vacation in six years. Not surprisingly, the odds of tension increased among women who took vacations once a year, once in two to five years and once every six years, compared to women who took vacations twice or more per year. Marital satisfaction also decreased as the frequency of vacations decreased.

Action Sparked
Use you vacation time! You owe it to yourself, your marriage and your family to take some time off to relax and regroup. Even if you canít afford to go away on a trip, simply getting away from work for a week and having some fun close to home will rejuvenate your spirit. You canít perform at your peak if you are run down and depressed. Refresh yourself with a holiday, then go back to workóready to tackle the world.
