These are the 20 best trips to take if you have work burnout

Burnout is a real problem for American workers. One of the solutions to help relieve some of your stress would be to take a vacation and yet people can’t even do that. One in four American workers surveyed by Bankrate.com say they can’t take a vacation, and another third won’t use all the vacation they are given. The survey of 1,000 people aged 18 or older, found that 22% said they can’t take time off work.

But if you can somehow find the time to get a week or two or even a few days to really check out and go somewhere you should consider one of the destinations on TripAdvisor’s “Most Blissful Destinations For Wellness Travel.”

“For travelers looking to improve their spiritual or physical health, or just an escape for a digital detox, these destinations offer a wide variety of peaceful accommodations and experiences to revitalize the soul,” said Brooke Ferencsik, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. Unlike just a regular trip, wellness travel is a relatively new trend in which you go on a trip seeking health and spirtual guidance. 

According to the Global Wellness Institute, international and domestic wellness tourism accounted for $563 billion in 2015, up 14% from 2013, and is expected to grow to $808 billion by 2020. And 25% of travelers saying they plan to take a wellness trip in the next 12 months, according to a recent poll of TripAdvisor’s global Facebook community.
