Bay Area entertainment is unparalleled…and it’s good for you! Seriously!


As crazy as it may sound, the main key to productivity has a lot to do with taking time off. That’s right, a vacation may be one of the most important aspects of getting you in “gear.” Sure, your boss may not agree, but if you look at an internal study done at the Boston based professional services firm Ernst & Young, the amount of an employee production goes up nearly eight percent for every ten extra hours of vacation they receive annually.

Believe it or not, but according to Glassdoor’s Q1 2014 Employment Confidence Survey, Americans are only taking half of their allotted vacation time. In fact, those who actually do end up taking a vacation, three out of five of them admit to working when enjoying their excursions, while nearly 20 percent have reported being contacted by a work supervisor or a coworker about work related issues.

“That’s a shame,” said Steve Blake, vice president of Clinical Operations at Managed Health Network, Inc., a subsidiary of Health Net, “because a number of studies have shown that taking time away from the job can have physical and psychological health benefits.

“Workers who don’t take advantage of the vacation time that they’re eligible for could be shortchanging themselves in terms of benefits to their health,” added Blake.

One of the great things about living in California is that you’re never more than two or so hours from a great vacation spot. If you live in Southern California the possibilities are endless. You’ve got the beach, Disneyland, nightlife and perfect weather. If you happen to find yourself in Northern California, you are never far from whatever climate you prefer. You can visit the rolling hills of Napa Valley Wine country or head to Lake Tahoe for a fun-filled hiking excursion. Not to mention the beautiful nightlife of the San Francisco Bay. Bay Area entertainment is unparalleled. If you’re looking for a casino in the Bay Area there are plenty to be found. Twin Pine Casino is a great destination and one of the best Bay Area casinos as it falls right smack dab in the beautiful Napa Valley. Now that sounds like a great vacation!
