Global News Talks ‘Staycations’ With U of G Prof


Jamie GrumanProf. Jamie Gruman was featured in a Nov. 6 Global News story about the benefits of spending your vacation at home, rather than shelling out for a fancy trip.

Author of Boost: The Science of Recharging Yourself in an Age of Unrelenting Demands, Gruman talked about how many of us feel pressure to go somewhere if we book time off. But, he said, if we spend time at home — and break away from our usual routines — a “staycation” can be a great way to rejuvenate.

A professor in U of G’s Department of Management, Gruman studies recovering from work, happiness and positive organizational behaviour.
