Studies show that women who take a vacation twice a year are 8 times less likely to have a heart attack than those who vacation every 6 years.


Vacations can be good for our mental health. Research shows that people who take vacations are happier and feel more satisfied with their lives. This is especially important because many people experience stress and anxiety in their daily lives.

Going on vacation helps people relax and feel rejuvenated. This can have a positive impact on our overall well-being. Taking a vacation can also help reduce depression, according to research from the University of Pittsburgh.

In addition, taking vacations can improve relationships, including marriages. Couples who take vacations together or separately report higher levels of satisfaction in their relationships.

After vacation, stress has been shown to decrease for over a month after returning home. 

Do not fall into the trap of feeling guilty for taking time off. An Ernst and Young study proved that those who vacation more are more productive at work, and it's the same for small business owners and entrepreneurs. 

Vacations help you sleep better…..but it's very important to truly unplug when on holiday and stop checking those work emails every hour. 

Taking a vacation can even help you live longer; don’t believe it. Then watch the video:
