How Vacations Affect Your Happiness

Quoting The New York Times:

The study, published in the journal Applied Research in Quality of Life,  showed that the largest boost in happiness comes from the simple act of planning a vacation.  In the study, the effect of vacation anticipation boosted happiness for eight weeks. [...]

The study didn’t find any relationship between the length of the vacation and overall happiness.  Since most of the happiness boost comes from planning and anticipating a vacation, the study suggests that people may get more out of several small trips a year than one big vacation, Mr. Nawijn said.
