Statistics Show and Prove You’re Not Actually Relaxing Enough on Vacation! Hurry Up and Rest!

Americans are not relaxing as much as they should. Solid numbers that were aggregated recently by combining the data from a number of studies confirm it. The conclusions that can be drawn from the studies indicate that citizens of the United States, whether we’re having a staycation or a vacation, don’t relax nearly as much as they should.

Perhaps it’s a byproduct of our fast, always-moving lives. Whatever the cause, one thing is clear — we need to set our phones and laptops aside, and unwind every now and again! Even luxury resorts seem unable to bring us away from our phones.

Below is a collection of a few fast facts surrounding Americans’ vacationing habits. Hopefully after reading them, you’ll feel the call to unwind, unplug from everything, and stop spending so much time answering your boss (although they may disagree with us!):

    • On vacation, it’s reported that many Americans check email and voicemail just as frequently as they do when they’re not on vacation. One in ten survey respondents claimed they were consequently unable to relax on vacation.
      • Around 61% of respondents said that, while on vacation, they preferred to continue working! Some said this is because they want to avoid having a mountain of work waiting for them when they return, but experts say it’s almost like a subtle form of addiction to our electronic devices.

    LuxLife made our trip super easy and wonderful. I really appreciate how proactive they were to help organize any excursions we wanted, provide restaurant recommendations, and coordinate our car service to and from the airport. Everything went smoothly as soon as we landed in Cabo, and we couldn’t ask for anything more.

    Jeremy and Jerry were exceptional hosts! We followed all their suggestions and we were thrilled with the entire experience. They made our twins birthday spectacular with their surprise upon arrival. We would absolutely contact them again for a future stay.

    The LuxLife team was so helpful and informative. They coordinated my transportation and spa appointment and provided a formal itinerary with all of my travel plans. I will definitely reach out to them if we go to Cabo again. The villa was amazing and we loved the resort. First class experience. Thank you LuxLife team!

    Simply amazing. The room was awesome, the view spectacular, and the service at The Cape was incredible. The LuxLife folks were very attentive and helpful in arranging all details, including a last minute Waverunner on Sat morning.

  • Only a quarter, a square 25%, of survey participants said they used up all of their vacation time each year. This proves that Americans are not only very bad at relaxing while on vacation, but we’re not even vacationing as often as we should!

It’s plain to see that we’re not getting enough rest and relaxation. The next time you’re on vacation, unplug yourself from your electronic devices. Otherwise, you may be defeating the entire purpose of going on vacation in the first place! Most destinations have places to stay like villas for rent, luxury resorts, some of which are considered all inclusive resorts (containing virtually everything you need to fill an entire vacation with), vacation rentals like homes and apartments, and more.
