Every year, as the time for those much-needed holidays from work approach, the average person finds a reason not to get away. There is too much to do at home and with your busy schedule, you’ve not gotten to it. You can’t afford the expense because you can stay at home just as easily. Who will mind the dogs while you’re away? And, the list goes on. Unfortunately, none of those make much sense from a medical science standpoint because there are several scientific reasons why you should get away on holiday. By the way, choosing the right accommodations means the furry ones can come along with you!
Stepping Back from Stress
Several studies mentioned on Inc.com substantiate not only the need to take a break but, taking it a step further, why you should get away on that holiday. Stress is a leading cause of many illnesses, among which are cancer and cardiovascular disease. The article cited a group of 900 Canadian lawyers and a study out of Vienna that proved without a doubt, getting away, really getting away, reduced stress whilst away and for many weeks after returning home.
The reasoning behind getting away for stress reduction is that you will be removed from anything that reminds you that you still have much to do. You won’t be tempted to go into the office for a day and you aren’t just a few minutes away from the office if they need you for an important client. No, the garden can wait until you get back and if you are truly needed, there’s this new technology called a mobile phone. (Want a tip? Leave the phone at home!)
Back to Better Sleeping Habits
Here is what many doctors and scientists believe is the best benefit of taking a holiday away from home. When you are at home, the phone rings incessantly, the neighbours drop in, the lawn needs mowing, the gutters need cleaning and you are so caught up in what needs to be done that you simply aren’t getting the rest you require. After all, the holiday is only so long, isn’t it?
You’ve neglected all those things because work and life have kept you in overdrive, and your sleep patterns are broken. While it is a myth that everyone needs at least eight hours sleep, science does say that most people require a minimum of 5-6 hours of deep sleep to be truly rested enough to promote good health. Pamper yourself with a personalised service, such as what you’d receive at luxury hotels like Tewkesbury Park and even the dogs will get pampered as well. You’ve not seen doggie amenities until you’ve taken a holiday at Tewkesbury Park.
From clearing your head to improve focus and concentration to resting up from a difficult year, there are so many reasons why you not only deserve to get away on holiday, but you need to get away. Science empirically states that the human body needs rest. The human body needs relief from stress and, believe it or not, the human body needs a bit of fun and entertainment. This year, get away on holiday. Those long-neglected tasks will be there when you get home. What do you think weekends are for?
