Short breaks are better than one long vacation.
Research has shown that taking smaller, frequent breaks makes people a lot more happier than taking one long holiday.
Dan Ariely, a behavioural economist, said that people's enjoyment wanes as they become accustomed to their holiday lifestyle.
But other experts disagree.
"If you pack three times as many holidays into the same amount of leave, you can expect three times as much trouble. It's not obvious to me that it's worth it," said Tim Harford, the author of Dear Undercover Economist.
