Five ways vacation helps your health

Do you long for sandy beaches and long lazy days in the sun?  Do you dream of visiting exotic destinations and experiencing cultures and customs different from your own? Do you just want to binge watch the latest Netflix series without worrying about getting up early for work when you’re done?

You need a vacation.

If you’re an average American, research shows you only take about half the vacation time you have accumulated. And when you do finally put on your out-of-office message and get away for a few days, chances are good you continue to do some work even though you’re technically on vacation.

Maybe it’s time to quit letting your vacation days pile up and unplug from the daily grind — you’ll feel happier, more relaxed, and healthier.
