Women need 'momcations' to avoid mommy burnout

MIAMI – Being a mother is easily one of the world's most underappreciated jobs; that's why psychologists are saying women should take a vacation from the work.

Psychologists say mothers who take just a two-day vacation can benefit their mental health, while also improving relationships with their spouse.
