Going on vacation is supposed to be a time to relax and get some much needed rest, however results of a recent survey suggest that many Americans return from vacation wearier than they were before they left. The Gallup poll of 1,000 adults revealed that 54% of holidaymakers had returned from a recent break feeling tired, 19% of which saying that they were "very tired" or "exhausted." One third of respondents set their vacation off to a bad start by leaving packing to the very last minute and having to stay up late to get it done. Meanwhile 36% of respondents with jobs said they had to work much harder or stay at work late the night before their holiday to get as much done as possible before they left.
