Vacations are fun but did you also know that they’re good for your health? If you’re super busy it might be tempting to forgo your vacation but don’t! Here’s why we need vacations.
Why We Need Vacations
Vacations help you to calm your mind.
Some neurologists believe that the neural connections that make you feel calm become weaker if they’re not used regularly. This means that over time, if you don’t vacation, it’ll become harder for you to switch into relaxation mode. Without the ability to switch over to relaxation mode your stress levels will go through the roof.
Vacations help reduce your risk of having a heart attack.
Did you know spending some down time with family and friends can reduce the risk of heart attack by as much as 30% in men and 50% in women? Down time is critical for your overall health.
Vacations restore your energy.
Taking a vacation increases your energy. When you get back to work after your vacation this energy will make work seem easier and maybe even more enjoyable.
Vacations make you happier with your entire life.
If all you do is work and never take a break you’re going to start to feel like your life sucks. When people schedule in regular vacations and take control over their free time they feel much more satisfied with their life overall.
Vacations allow you to view the world differently.
When you go on vacation it gives you a chance to experience different cultures and a different way of living. This can be a real eye opener and often results in you viewing your own life differently.
