CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Do you have your bags packed for summer vacation?

It turns out the happiest part of your trip isn't what you think.

A study found that just planning or anticipating your trip can make you happier than actually taking it.

The authors of the study found that people only experienced a boost in happiness post-travel if their trip was relaxing.

If the trip was deemed "stressful" their post trip happiness levels were comparable to those who had not taken a vacation.
