Hate to be the bearer of bad news but that two week vacation you are planning for nearly a year to relax, rejuvenate and recharge may be too long and making your dream vacation a miserable experience.  Dutch researchers found that vacationers’ sense of wellbeing peaked around day 8 of a long vacation, which means anything more than that you start to lose the Zen found in that long waited for dream trip.  Rather than set a time limit, work on experiences of the vacation.  Not only will different experiences recharge your mind, it will make your memories much more joyful.  So if you are planning on going to the beach, have something planned and maybe a day or two of no plans surrounding it.   The experience may only require 5 days of vacation instead of 14 so not only do you enjoy yourself better you have additional days off waiting for another enjoyable vacation!
