When life gives us lemons, all we really need to do is make awesome lemonade on one of the world’s luxurious hotels! 🙂 This passage really made me think that at some point, we must definitely enjoy LIFE to the fullest by allowing ourselves to experience and indulge in a luxurious vacation.
Getting into a vacation, for some, might mean additional expenses. This is a reality that we have to face. But according to the studies presented by Susan Krauss Whitbourne Ph.D in Psychology Today, everyone needs to go on a vacation for a while, for STRESS affects our day to day existence. It affects how we function, how we deal with life experiences and also affects how we perceive and think during tough decision making instances. When stressed, the physiological response of your body is impaired. And what more better to relieve it than exploring the outdoors and travel.
And to give you options on how to alleviate your stress and entice you to travel, here are Top 10 Luxury Hotels that you should at least stay in your lifetime. This is done in no particular order.
