Too many times people return from vacation having had a great time, but also being down on themselves due to letting unhealthy habits dominate. People tend to overeat, drink more, and skip their work outs. It sucks to get away only to return feeling worse physically and emotionally than when you left! My friend Em and I are living proof that you can go on a vacation that is both healthy AND fun!

Let's give thanks to ourselves for all our hard work and tired bones; let's take a deep breath, relax our shoulders from up beside our ears; sign up to have someone take care of us for a change, and book ourselves a vacation. Exhale. Feels good doesn't it?

Spending time with one child allows you to really connect with what they're doing at school, the friends they're hanging out with, and what they think about what's going on in the world as well. We also became quite adept at picking out the accents and languages of fellow travellers -- many British, German, and Eastern European dialects.

Thanks to my generous father and our caregiver, my husband and I slip off (childless) into the wee hours of the morning to hop a quick flight to Miami.

Most of us are not as well aware or informed as we should be before going on vacation, according to a recent survey by Ipsos Reid of over 1,100 Canadians. And it can be way more than a minor inconvenience, as one in five of those who contract this illness can be confined in bed for a day and have symptoms up to five days.

It's no surprise that the royal baby tops my list--I will admit to being as excited as anyone when that baby was safely born. But what I can't help but think about is the pressure for Kate to emerge from the hospital and show off baby George, which she and Prince William did so graciously.

Here's a secret. I like to work holidays, even weekends. I'm not proud, or even boastful. Logically, I know that any work expands to fill the amount of time allotted to it but I can't help myself and honestly, vacations are not something I find comfortable. I'm not alone. Perhaps our concept of vacation time merely needs to be revisited. If completely unplugging for a week -- or heaven forbid two -- feels too drastic, then maybe a new definition of holiday is required.
