In this article I look at why I believe a vacation is a great health tonic and a great way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Taking an annual vacation is something many people enjoy as a welcome respite to the grueling work schedule that keeps them chained to their jobs for the rest of the year.
But how many of you consider a vacation to be a health tonic as well?
You might (or might not, for that matter) be surprised to learn that getting away from the stresses and strains of day to day life for a more relaxed and enjoyable interlude can really boost health as well as recharge the batteries.
Most people tend to book a vacation at a resort or hotel of some description in a nicer part of the country to where they live, while other like to jet off to some place more exotic.
Others like to rent an RV and travel around the state or further afield, time permitting. But what about this kind of a holiday for people with disabilities?
Did you know that you can actually rent a specially customized RV that can cater for the needs of the physically handicapped and wheelchair users that can allow them to enjoy an RV vacation just like anyone else? You can read about handicap RV rentals by following this link: https://handicaprvrentals.blogspot.com.
Getting away from everything in a custom RV is actually a really amazing idea and a far cry from the run-of-the-mill offering of a hotel resort that you probably end up visiting every year for a week or two. It is certainly something worth considering if you have a hankering for something different and exciting.
But then, not everyone likes to put any effort into their annual break and prefers to simply relax by a pool or on a beach someplace and that's fine too!
Relaxation is the Key
The bottom line is that you need to de-stress your body and a great way to do that is to simply do something that you enjoy (as long as it doesn't put you under any stress).
So having that beach time or pool time or general lazing in a hammock time is a great revitalizer for the body.
When you allow your body to relax to a great extent like this, it gets a chance to do what it is programmed to do when not under stress. And that's to recharge, repair and put things right that have been going wrong!
So look forward to that upcoming holiday and plan to do as little or as much as you feel will allow you to get that much needed relaxation and you might just surprise yourself at how much better you will feel when you return to the day to day side of things.
Then all you have to figure out is how to reduce the stress levels of that day to day lifestyle so you improve your health for the whole year and not just for two weeks or so.
