    It’s really just an extension of that simple philosophy, ‘Life is for living!’

    I see no better excuse than that, even if your vacation is only for a weekend!

  2. That´s is so true!!
    My husband and I have been travelling for almost one year and a half [yes, full time travellers]… And my stress level never being so low. Even changing places constantly, packing and planning destinations… Everything is happier and easier now, the travel mood makes a big difference in our lives!
    Let’s keep travelling,,

    This is a great post Natalie – couldn’t’ agree more. In fact, I may well email it over to my boss right now… lets hope she feels the same ;).

    If vacations make you this healthy – think what full time travel can do?! We’ll all be invincible. Great post.

    There’s more and more evidence that people are finding more happiness in an experiential lifestyle as compared to a consumption-fuelled lifestyle. Yet, habits take time to change, but maybe one day we will start seeing societies chasing experiences, instead of hoarding commodities many of us don’t even require 🙂

      That is very interesting and I guess we are leading the way, right? Trail blazers! Thanks for stopping by!

    It’s really true that when you make the effort to get away, your life slows down. You can relax, connect with loved ones, and savor the beauty of your surroundings. All so good for your physical and emotional health!

    Well if vacations protect against heart disease then that’s another excuse to book a trip right now lol. I use travel as a way of recovering from a illness and find it very therapeutic and it helped build my strength up so would encourage everyone to go on a vacation right now!!

  8. Laughter really is the best medicine, isn’t it!

  9. Heart disease runs in my family so I guess I have an excuse to book fifteen million vacations now!

    That’s why, in our sixties, we bought timeshare. We will be forced to go on vacays even during retirement!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      That is the perfect way to vacation! Yeah you! What destination did you choose for your time share? After traveling all over..I’m curious where you chose to put roots!

    If science says how can we argue? I completely agree that taking a relaxing vacation is one of the best ways to stay healthy.

  12. Brianna says:

    There are so many pschologic as well as physical benefits for traveling. Just more reasons to get out and hit the road!

  13. Vacations certainly do wonders for body, soul and mind. You point out many good things to keep in mind when we think of why we want to travel.

  14. I wonder if more people would make travel a priority if they knew it would make them healthier and could potentially extend their living years? I’m not surprised by these studies at all – travel has so many benefits on so many different levels!

  15. You are right! A holiday is great for your health. It relaxes both the body and mind!

    I find this post fascinating. Out of 12,000 middle-aged men those who took regular vacations sliced their risk of death from heart disease by a third! That is incredible and totally makes sense. But now I wonder what is considered a vacation. Sitting on a beach doing nothing? I move around a lot when I travel and worrying about missing flights and catching trains can be stressful. I wonder if that matters.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I know – isn’t that incredible? I wondered the same thing and after reading other articles about it I think the protection is having a breather from stress. For some, relaxing on a beach is the best way to do that (I would be bored to death!) and for others more active vacations are a great way to do that. Certainly vacations have their worries and air travel is certainly stressful at times, but over all I think it is a lesser stress environment for most.
