If you’re fortunate to still have your mom around, take a trip with her while you can. Soak up for knowledge, love and wisdom during time well spent for just the two of you. Go somewhere she’s always wanted, return to a place you have fond memories of from childhood or travel to a place that takes both of you out of your comfort zone and try something new.

Not every trip has to be booked with leisure in mind. Take some time off to do some good by going on a mission trip. Whether you’re visiting an community and neighborhood to give back or embarking on a spiritual retreat, doing something to restore your soul while helping others is always a good idea.

But remember to disconnect from the mundane tasks of home life, turn off your cellphone and focus in on what's important. Did you know taking a vacation has health benefits for the whole family: It reduces stress and anxiety, promotes heart health, encourages positive emotion and improves relationships with your spouse and your children. If that's not good enough incentive to book a family vacation, what is?!
