The science of vacation: Ian Cole at TEDxOrlando
While many know the health benefits of vacation, many still don't take the steps necessary to reap the benefits. In this talk, Ian Cole discusses the scientific research behind vacations and provides a formula to increase the stress relief from your vacations through anticipation, relaxation, avoidance and capitalisation.
The value of travel – Rick Steves
After spending 4 months a year for the last 30 years living out of a suitcase, Rick Steves reflects on the value of thoughtful travel. Sharing lessons learned from Iran to El Salvador and from India to Denmark, Steves tells why spending all that time and money away from home has broadened his perspective, enriched his life, and made it clear to him, as he says in his talk, "Fear is for people who don't get out very much."
