The Power of Vacation: Seven Essential Benefits

Do you remember the popular “Kokomo” song by The Beach Boys? Komomo for me is more than a place, it’s a state of mind. It’s the excitement of planning for, the anticipation of what will be, and a chance to enjoy some much needed time to relax and have lots of fun. It’s an invitation to get out of your comfort and meet new people, try new things, and explore new places that seduce you to discover all that life has to offer.

As you welcome the summer months ahead, what vacation plans have you made to relax, enjoy, rejuvenate, and celebrate life?
