According to studies, taking time off the job can be good for your physical and emotional health. Vacationers experience reduced levels of stress, a lower risk of heart disease, a more positive view on life, and greater determination to accomplish their goals. Here is a list of some more advantages of taking time off work, in case you need a little more persuasion. High blood pressure and heart disease are both influenced by stress. According to the New York Times, taking vacations every two years rather than every six can reduce the incidence of coronary heart disease or heart attacks for both men and women. Chronic stress can change the structure of your brain and cause anxiety and depression, according to neuroscientists. When you take a vacation, you experience emotions of peace and stress relief, which enables your body and mind to heal in ways that they couldn’t otherwise. People who “always find time for regular vacations” scored 68.4 on the Gallup-Well-Being Heathway’s Index, compared to 51.4 for less frequent travelers, according to a Gallup survey. According to one study, the individuals’ physical complaints, sleep quality, and mood had all improved three days after their trip compared to the day before. Particularly in those who experienced increased personal time and overall happiness during their trip, these advantages were still noticeable five weeks later.
