A recent article on Self.com attributed a healthier, happier and more energized life to… travel!
More frequent travel can reduce stress, slim your body, help sleep patterns and strengthen relationships. Vacations have proven to reduce levels of cortisol in the body which is a stress hormone causing belly fat, thus reducing the circumference of your waist! Doing more things that make you happy actually contribute to a higher quality sleep and ultimately you will feel more relaxed and less stressed at work. By vacationing you can even reduce your risk of developing heart disease according to a study by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. And studies also show that women who travel at least once a year are more content in their relationships. Overall, whether it is a weekend getaway or a 10 day excursion, you are likely to live a happier life with a frequent change of scenery.
Schedule a "girls weekend getaway" or a "yoga retreat" to revive yourself!
