Holiday or short breaks from work will keep our stress away
Medical experts believe that taking a break from the job, routine and other daily tasks keep stress levels under check and builds up the stamina.
Stress Relief : Stress levels can have several adverse effects on both physical and mental health. Prolonged outbursts of stress causes inflammation, gastrointestinal issues, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, depression etc. Plan an annual holiday or short breaks from work, to keep stress away.
Better Sleep : A vacation means lazing out, having fun and doing our favourite things, be it reading a book, relishing favourite foods etc. When you are not stressed, the brain releases melatonin- the sleep hormone in ample amounts providing body with good sleep and rest. A better sleep means good heart health and mental peace.
Bond With Family : Vacations are the best time to bond with your family without worrying about job related tasks. Even a short break from work helps in strengthening your ties with family and friends, make you feel secure and emotionally stable.
