What is the value of a vacation?

Vacations can be expensive. First you have the actual expense of the trip – which will run you about $1,145 per person or $4,580 for a family of four if you’re the average American, according to American Express. And the pressure to shell out for the best vacation ever – one to rival the Facebook and Instagram feeds of our friends – can compel us to make unwise financial decisions.

Then you have the difficulty of getting away from work. Only 25% of Americans took all their paid vacation days last year, according to Forbes, and 61% of said they continue to work while on vacation.

But you already know how difficult and costly it can be trying to make time for vacations.

However, taking time to make lasting memories with the ones that you love is vital to living a fulfilled life. It’s not the amount you can afford to spend – or even the health of your bank account – that determines your wealth. It’s the magic moments that you create and the gratitude you cultivate that determines your wealth.
