The Benefits of Taking a Vacation

vacationWe live in a stressful society, therefore It is very important for people to take a break in order to stay healthy. Studies have shown not taking a vacation for a few years can increase the risk of heart disease and the potential for a heart attack.

It was also  found that people who take vacations  have an easier time with  breaking bad habits such as nail biting, smoking, and eating poorly because the stressors that lead to these behaviors are minimalized.

There are many additional  benefits to taking a vacation:
•A better outlook on life
• A chance for the body to unwind
• An increase in  happiness

To really benefit from a vacation a person has to leave their work environment at home.
Today, with electronic devices so prevalent, it is recommended to not check them more than once or twice a day, while on vacation to reap the full benefits of relaxation.
