That's right!!! Taking a vacation, especially during the winter months, will make you healthier! There is actual medical evidence of how your health will improve when you take vacations. Not only is it good for your health, it will strengthen your relationship, and improve your productivity and attitude toward your work and employer. With all the evidence of how good vacations are for you, how can you not take the time off you need and deserve?
The most compelling evidence in the area of heart health. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute conducted a trial of 12,000 men that had a high risk for coronary heart disease, over a 9 year period. During the study, it was found that men who took frequent vacations were 21% less likely to die from any cause, and 32% less likely to die from heart disease.
In another study, Framingham Heart Study, the largest and longest running study of cardiovascular health, found that men who did not take annual vacations were 30% more likely to die of a heart attack as compared to those men who did take frequent, annual vacations. Women who only take vacations every 6 years were 8 times more likely to have heart disease and heart attacks.
So what are you waiting for? It is time to be healthy and take that much needed vacation. Cure the winter blues with a dose of vitamin sea, some blue sky and sunshine!
