With the hectic pace of every day’s life nowadays, many of us suffer from multiple kinds of stress and too often do we have the impression that our batteries are totally flat. This is why going on holiday is a crucial part of your life that needs to be taken into consideration at least once a year!
Importance of holidays
Here we firmly defend the importance of holiday breaks and their very important role in giving a balance to the body and ensuring a long-term good mental and physical health. Holidays offer you the time to relax, rest, step back and take stock of your personal life, your needs, your desires and why not your future projects. Essentially, holidays serve as one of the best, if not the best way to ensure a good productivity at work as well as at school. So if you think you are that necessary for your business and you cannot leave your office, think again! Tell yourself instead that a couple of days off will allow you to escape stress while allowing you to return tens of times more productive.
Holidays and mental health
According to a survey conducted by the World Health Organization about global burden of disease, mental illness, including stress-related disorders, will be the second cause of disability by 2020. Denying the existence of stress only aggravates the problem. A vicious circle then settles in: the stress harms your productivity and damages your satisfaction at work, reducing thereby your chances of getting a promotion and experiencing professional success. Nobody would want to be trapped in this cycle where anxiety destroys peace of mind and disrupts the physical well-being.
A crucial change of environment
People going on holidays annually reduce by no less than 30% their risk of heart disease. Researchers have recognized an association between stress and cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes. A change of environment even for a couple of days is the best thing to do to relax and unwind. Opting for a stay at a seaside accommodation or camping in the forest are two desirable options for people looking for a change of scenery and are ideal choices to help you manage your stress.
