We all know that going on holiday is a great way to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, and that it gives you the opportunity to relax and get some quality time with your family, friends or loved ones.
In fact, going on holiday also has some real health benefits associated with it. These give you a great excuse to actually start booking a holiday!
Makes You Happier
One of the best things about a holiday is the memories that you are left with. Holidays bring you closer to loved ones, allow you to share your experiences and you get to enjoy the special moments you have together. All of these things contribute to an increase in endorphins, which are chemicals that induce feelings of pleasure and euphoria.
Great for the Mind
The main reason we go on holiday is to unwind and relieve ourselves of the stress and strain in everyday life. A build-up of stress due to work, money or illness can lead to serious problems with your health problems such as headaches, stomach aches and increased blood pressure which, in extremely serious cases, can cause heart problems and chest pains.
When on holiday, you are away from these stresses, meaning that your concentration levels increase, which can result in a happier mood and a healthy mind.
Makes You Healthier
When on holiday, you tend to feel more active and inspired to try new things. For example, if you travel to a destination close to a beach, you will probably go to the beach during your holiday. Going to the beach makes you feel happier, fitter and healthier as well as giving you a boost of vitamin D from the gorgeous sun.
Going abroad is also a great way to try fresh, new cuisine that you wouldn’t necessarily try when you are at home. It may open your eyes to try and recreate those delicious meals when you return home, adding more variety and improving your diet.
