Did you also know that vacations are good not just for your mental health but for your heart too? According to an online research article, going on vacation offers numerous benefits related to metabolic health, which can, in return, help improve your heart health over your lifetime.
The study, conducted by Syracuse University, showed that those who took more vacations a year had a lower risk of metabolic syndrome and metabolic symptoms. If these terms are new to you, don’t worry. Let us explain. Metabolic syndrome is a series of conditions that are risk factors for future heart health troubles that may lead to an increased risk of having a stroke, heart attack, or even may lead to the development of diabetes.
The risk factors covered by metabolic syndrome include high blood pressure, excess body fat around the waist, and high blood sugar. Lowering metabolic risks has a positive effect on your overall heart health throughout the years, which can decrease your chances of developing cardiovascular disease. Therefore the study concluded that going on vacation can be beneficial to the future of your heart’s health because taking more vacations and giving yourself the opportunity to actually relax can lessen these symptoms.
How great is that? It’s essential to not just work your life away. It’s equally as important to make sure you have your health so when you’re done with all that work and retire, you can actually enjoy it. So do yourself a favor, take a break and book your vacation to Maui right now!
