It’s official – holidays are good for you
29 August 2013
If you had any doubt that holidays were good for you, it’s now official – holidays boost your mental and physical health.
In a six month experiment conducted by Nuffield Health and tour operator Kuoni, a group of people were given a thorough health check. Half were sent off on an exotic holiday and checked again on their return. Compared with the non-travel group, the holiday-makers showed improved blood pressure, sleep quality and better ability to withstand stress. And the effects lasted for months.
So the moral of this story is, treat yourself and pay your local travel agent a visit and plan your next holiday.
