Face it, you need a Summer Vacation on Sanibel. People today are working harder and spending more time in the office and less time with family and friends than ever before. Most of us are so busy making a living – that we sometimes forget about truly living! And far too often, vacations are a casualty of this seven day a week hectic lifestyle. But taking a summer vacation is extremely important. Not only to spend quality time with your family and children, but for your own mental and physical health. It’s easy to get caught up in your daily routine. Shipping the kids off to school, working long hours in the office, running around, then watching a few hours of television and falling asleep on the couch. Research shows that many of us are spending more and more time with their phones and laptops and less time interacting with their families and loved ones. Communication and social skills are deteriorating as we live more of our lives in the digital world.
But as an inspirational author once wrote “ At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun”. So take time off work, grab a bucket and a shovel, switch off the phone and head to the beach! Live in the moment with your family and loved ones and experience the vacation of a lifetime. Walk along the beaches of Sanibel Island collecting shells and watching the sunset. Spending quality time with your family has been proven to reduce depression and anxiety, produce more happiness hormones in your brain and relieve stress and everyday worries.
Taking a Sanibel beach vacation is also important for your children too! Growing up in a digital society, it’s crucial that they develop their social skills and take a break from school pressures, develop positive relationships with their families and create positive and priceless memories that will stay with them for a lifetime. Even a few lazy summer days building sandcastles together can deepen the bond between parents and children.
Make sure you allow time to relax and spend time with your family at one of our beach vacation properties on Sanibel Island, Florida and create those family bonds and memories that you won’t forget.
