[b][HANOVER, 12/22/2017][/b] - Recent studies reveal that Americans work more than the citizens of any industrialized country.
According to ILO, on a yearly basis, Americans work 137 more hours than Japanese workers, 260 more hours than British workers, and 499 more hours than French workers. From BLS’ data, the average productivity of American workers has increased by 400% since 1950.
Productivity and stress management coach Joe Robinson states that there are many factors behind the issue, one of them being the fear of employees of being perceived as less committed than their colleagues should they take a vacation in the “layoff era”.
With the effect of stress on the mind and body, however, the importance of vacationing cannot be overlooked.

Studies have shown how vacationing greatly reduces stress and the risk of heart disease, as well as improves focus, productivity and overall well-being.
Chestnut Mountain Resort, dubbed a premier year round resort, offers an extensive range of amenities, giving guests both relaxing and adrenaline-boosting activity options. Through a short stay at the resort, guests can reap the physical and mental benefits of vacationing.
This summer, guests can ride down the Alpine Slide, a 2,050 ft. track that leads to the banks of Mississippi; or try Chestnut Mountain Resort’s new family-friendly zip line that gives guests an eagle’s perspective of the upper Mississippi River Valley.
Down the Mississippi River, guests can embark on a 1.5 hour cruise, enjoy the scenic riverscape, catch a glimpse of the local wildlife and learn about the region’s history. Visitors can also have a Segway tour, play Frisbee or mini golf and dine alfresco with a spectacular view at Sunset Grille.
