SHE’S HERE TO SHARE SOME TIPS FROM TAKING A BREAK FROM THE STRESS FROM LIFE. PLUS RELAXING ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CLOSE TO YOUR HOME. AND JULIA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.>>THANKS FOR HAVING ME.>>SO LET’S TALK ABOUT RELAXATION AND THE EASIEST WAYS TO GO ABOUT DOING THAT BECAUSE LET’S BE HONEST LIFE IS GOING SUPER FAST NOW.>>ABSOLUTELY. AT TRAVELOCITY DID A STUDY ABOUT STRESS, AND THEY SURVEYED AMERICANS, AND IT SAYS ALMOST HALF OF ALL PEOPLE SURVEYED ARE MORERE STRESSED OUT THIS YEAR THAN THEY WERE LAST, SO YOU MENTIONED NATIONAL RELAXATION DAY. PEOPLE JUST NEED A LITTLE NUDGE TO UNWIND, TO UNPLUG, TO DECOMPRESS AND TO CHILL OUT. [ LAUGHTER ]>>YEAH, THAT DEFINITELY IS SO TRUE BECAUSE WE DON’T UNPLUG TOO OFTEN. SO WHAT KIND OF DEALS, WHAT KIND OF SUGGESTIONS DO YOU HAVE FOR US, JULIA?>>>>WELL, OF COURSE TRAVELING IS A GREAT WAY TO RELAX. YOU CAN SIP PINA COLADAS ON THE BEACH, SEE DIFFERENT CULTURES AND HISTORY, SO TRAVEL IS OBVIOUSLY A BIG WAY TO DE-STRESS, BUT IF YOU WANT TO PLAN A STAYCATION, STAY CLOSERER TO HOME. YOU DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE TOTO GET ON A PLANE TO FEEL RELAXED. THERE ARE PLENTY OF PLACES WITHIN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND SPAS ARERE ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO IMMEDIATELY JUST LET GO AND BE PERFORMERRED A LITTLE BIT. — AND BE PAMPERED A LITTLE BIT.>>JULIA, BEING HERE IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA I THINK YOU’RE TOTALLY RIGHT. WE DON’T HAVE TO GO VERY FAR TO ACTUALLY HAVE A LITTLE STAYCATION AND COMPLETELY TAKE OURSELVES AWAY FROM THE DAILY GRIND HERE IN FLORIDA.>>ABSOLUTELY. A GREAT PLACE THAT’S CLOSE TO YOU GUYS IS CALLED PINK SHELL BEACH RESORT, SO THIS IS A FULL-SERVICE SPA. IT’S 6,000 SQUARE FEET AND OFFERS A TON OF DIFFERENT SERVICES. SO YOU CAN GET A WARM STONE MASSAGE, FOR EXAMPLE, AND SORT OF ENJOY THAT TROPICAL TRANQUILITY. SO THAT’S’S WHAT I WOULD RECOMMENDND FOR A SPA THAT’S CLOSE BY, OR IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A LITTLE DRIVE. DRIVE ONE HOUR SOUTH TO MARCO BEACH RESORT, ANDND YOU CAN TRY A SEA TONIC BODY WRAP, WHICH IS KIND OF A FUN WAY TO RELAX AS WELL. SIT INN THE HOT STEAM, GO FOR A JACUZZI AND TRY TO GET MEDITATIVE. DON’T LOOK AT YOUR PHONE. DON’T ANSWER YOUR E-MAILS. JUST TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOU.>>ABSOLUTELY. THAT’S A BIG THING. WHEN YOU’RE DOING THESE RELAXING THINGS, AND YOU’VE MENTIONED GREAT PLACES AS WELL, JULIA. I’VE STAYED AT PINK SHELL BEFORE. IT’S AMAZING. TURN YOUR PHONE OFF AND JUST RELAX. THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT. WHERE CAN WE GO FOR MORE INFO, JULIA?>>WELL, YOU CAN CHECK OUT TRAVELOCITY.COM/DEALS IF YOU’D LIKE TO FIND OUT A A BIT MORE ABOUT INTERNATIONAL PLACES OR PLACES CLOSE BY WHERE YOU CAN GET MORE OUT OF YOUR VACATION AND GET MORE RELAXED AT TRAVELOCITY.COM.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, JULIA, TRAVELOCITY.COM.
