Vacationiong or Holidaying is very important in one's life, because it re-energises.

Now , one can plan his holidays, as there may not be any time constraint.

So, here are some rationale to justify the necesacity of Vacationing.

Why Vacation is necessary?

Vacations mean spending quality time with your family

Vacation post retirement gives you an opportunity to refresh your relations with your spouse/family. Quite likely, during your younger days, you could not devote/spend that much time together, but, now you can compensate for that. This time, will definitely be a quality time as almost everything you wanted to do together like Sports activities e.g. swimming or playing some game etc. can be done now. This time will not be limited by the weekends or limited period. You can spend as much time as possible.
Vacations will pull you and your partner together and reinforce the fact that quality time is essential.

Taking a vacation allows you to lay back and relax

Vacation means complete rest, no official calls/mails or have to attend meetings. You have all the time in the world to spend the time the way you want. There is nobody to disturb you, not even your children.
