The school year is almost over for many teachers, which means a lot will be headed off on vacation over the summer, which they probably really need. In fact, according to a new survey, a little getaway is just what some people need to relieve the stress of their jobs, something teachers certainly need a lot of.
A new International Travelzoo survey finds a third of respondents say they are more stressed this year than they were last year, with 83% of respondents saying taking a holiday or short break relieves that stress, and helps them return to their best selves.
And while 92% of folks say mental well being is as important as physical well being, not all countries are taking the vacation they need to protect their mental well being. The study finds that Germans are the most likely to take wellness breaks (64%), while folks in the U.S. are the least likely, with only 10% saying they do so.
Unfortunately, it seems Americans are the ones who probably need those breaks the most, with 74% of those in the USA saying they are more stressed this year than last year, while 72% of Germans say they are less stressed than they were last year.
