A Perfect Vacation? According To New Book It's Possible. Just Stick To The Vacation Rules.

Vacation more, live longer. Failing to vacation regularly can be a contributing factor to early death: research proves it beyond doubt. Your risk of dying from heart disease -- in fact, your risk of dying from any cause -- is significantly reduced by taking regular vacations.

Other rules offer advice on when to use guidebooks and when to put them away, the importance of having the autonomy to make your own vacation decisions, remaining optimistic when things go wrong, and keeping a balance between schedules and serendipity. Vacation Rules is based on the PERMA model of positive psychology, and draws directly on research into leisure travel and its effect on well-being, health, relationships and work performance.

Available as an e-book from major online bookstores, Vacation Rules is priced at $4.99. More information is available at
