By admin | March 27, 2017

1. Travel provides stress relief & lowers your risk of depression

By removing yourself from reality for a while, you reduce stress and negative emotions. Sufficient time away will reset your emotions. The benefits of vacation are not short lived, research has shown that happiness is improved and stress decreased for weeks after your vacation.

A study has shown that female subjects who vacationed less than once every two years were more likely to suffer from depression than women who vacationed at least twice a year.

2. Reduced risk of heart attack

Keep your heart healthy by taking a vacation! Studies have shown those who regularly took time off were 21% less likely to die from a heart attack. This is because people who take the time to travel are typically more active than those who don’t holiday.

3. Immune System boosting
