PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The economy is tough and for many who do not have the money for a vacation it can be a very frustrating time. There is a sense that everyone is getting away and this can add to the sense of annoyance. But if you look at vacation from a standpoint of improving your health, it is not all about where you go. It is the idea of getting away from the pressures of work.

This means that a day trip or a picnic in the park can be a stress buster. If you have a week for a so-called staycation, plan out some enjoyable day trips and leave the smartphone and all the work behind.
