Benefits of Travel And Taking A Vacation

  • An annual vacation can cut a person’s risk of heart attack by 50 percent.
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, and levels of epinephrine (a stress hormone) decline on holidays of only one or two days.
  • Travelers get three times more deep sleep after their vacation and sleep almost 20 minutes longer after their vacation.
  • Women who take more vacations are more satisfied with their marriages possibly because:
    • At least four out of ten travelers feel more romantic on vacation (42%),
    • and nearly one-third admit to making love more often on vacation (31%)
    • It could also be due to the fact that over half of employed people say they come back feeling reconnected with their family after vacation (53%).
    • Eight out of ten affluent leisure travelers consider vacations to be very important to their wellbeing (82%) and it’s easy to see why:
      • More than half feel more rested and relaxed when they return from vacation (52%),
      • and almost as many state they sleep later on vacation (49%).
    • Even the anticipation of vacation travel generates an increase in positive feelings about one’s life as a whole, family, economic situation, and health.

    “And that’s the wonderful thing about family travel – it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in your memories.”
