Everybody loves a vacation. The hustle-bustle of daily life doesn't give us much quality time to spend with our loved ones. India has a great past with heritage sites that one must see in his lifetime. But the truth is, overall the working Indians –especially in the private sector are horribly vacation deprived. Yes, we admit the reasons can be manifold such strained economy, lack of funds or too much work. You may be thinking foregoing the vacation this time, there are multiple unrecognized benefits of a vacation.

It’s scary but true that the concept of work-life balance is totally absent in the Indian context. Hectic work exposes people to stress everyday that can be hazardous to your health. Let’s explore a few reasons, why you should take time off and give yourself a break.

1. Use vacation to protect your health

Stress can literally kill you as it is linked to serious health ailments such as heart attack, stroke, weight gain and blood pressure. Can’t make time for a long vacation, take mini-vacation. Many resorts offer special weekend packages for family and couples of 3 nights, 2 days. Isn't it amazing?

2. Improves productivity at work

Taking a break from work is a great way to recharge your batteries. Once you are back at work, you feel calm, relaxed and upbeat. It acts as a stress buster that allows you to regain energy and develop a fresh perspective towards work.

3. Strengthen bonds of love

When you are buried in work at your office or busy in daily routines, family ties tend to suffer. A vacation is an excellent opportunity to build lasting memories with our loved ones. Spending time with family and friends can act as a booster shot as it affects your mental health thus affecting your overall health fundamentally. When on vacation don’t end up checking emails as ‘anxious about work’ person is the last person one needs on a vacation.

4. Stimulates your Senses

When in a new environment, the mind becomes active and the power of natural senses increases. Smell of ocean breeze or a pleasing visual sight can infuse you with positive emotions, lower stress hormones and boosts happiness and cheerfulness.
