YOU know the feeling. The workplace suddenly becomes claustrophobic. Nonstop meetings and relentless deadlines push you further to the edge and closer to a major meltdown. Or it could be something not quite as dramatic—just a disquieting feeling of wanting to get away from the routine and sameness of everyday life. Of breathing fresh air and spending quality time with your family.
At times like these, you may feel a strong compulsion to take a long and leisurely break at a distant place. But more often than not, time constraints compel you to stick closer to home, even as you yearn for a chance to recharge your batteries.
