Waldorf Astoria Orlando Pool

Swimming Pool at Waldorf Astoria Orlando

April is Stress Awareness Month.

Stress Awareness Month is a public awareness campaign, to educate the community about the dangers of stress, provide successful coping strategies, and provide information about the harmful misconceptions about stress.

Although family vacations are low on the stress “totem pole”, health care professionals say they can sometimes trigger stressful moments among families.  Here are a few of their tips for a stress free vacation:

  • Give yourself plenty of time for the trip. Rushing to catch a plane only increases everyone’s stress level and leads to conflicts. This is especially true when traveling with very young children who are likely to require more breaks and cause unpredictable interruptions.
  • Don’t overextend your schedule. Very few people can do a “whirlwind tour” of seven theme parks in seven days and remain relaxed, and trying to do so would be unthinkable for a family with young children. Likewise, don’t try to fill your days with too many commitments and activities. Leave time to see where your whims and moods take you – and plenty of time for the pool!

  • Relax and have fun without expecting the very state of being on vacation to “cure” any difficulties or problems you may be facing back home.

For more information, please read the article here.

Looking for a remedy to help cure stress from your vacation?Visit Waldorf Astoria Spa by Guerlain,  a haven of tranquility and wellness and a remedy to cure stress while vacationing. Featuring customized treatments and products from the famed Parisian skin care and fragrance company, this full service retreat has quickly become one of Orlando’s most talked-about spa experiences.
