One study from Applied Research in Quality of Life found that the largest boost in travel-related happiness comes from the simple act of planning a vacation. Another study from the University of Pittsburgh's Mind-Body Center found that leisure time, including vacations, generated more positive emotions and fewer negative feelings and depression.
"We’re replacing the common gloom of January with a kind of blue that gives people something to look forward to: visiting the rolling ocean waters along our 60 miles of beaches," Scott Schult, vice president of marketing for Visit Myrtle Beach, said. "Studies show that just planning a vacation can positively impact one's well-being, not to mention that the trip itself can help you de-stress and reconnect with loved ones."
