The Benefits of a Vacation


While many of us wouldn’t think twice about calling out from work if we had the flu, we often postpone taking much needed vacations.

Time off is medicine. Taking a vacation can cut the risk of heart attack in men by 30 percent and in women by 50 percent. Vacations alleviate stress, and time away from the source of stressors helps the body heal.

It is important to recognize that relaxing your mind and body, turning off the switch so that you forget about everything related to work is what a vacation is all about.

Scientific studies have shown that people who take regular vacations are better at their jobs. Vacation time is important for physical health, emotional health, interpersonal clarity and personal comfort, as well as increased efficiency and decreased irritability.

To take the stress out of paying for your vacation and avoid being forced into cramped accommodations with your spouse and kids, vacation lodgings, such as the ones available through Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC) are the way to go. Membership is free.
