Whether you’re a first time visitor, a long time reader, or somewhere in between it doesn’t take much to realize that I love to travel. The world is a big, beautiful place and I want to experience as much of it as I can. I’m always thinking of what I’ll do and where I’ll go next. You might think that my travels are just to satisfy my need for adventure and while that’s accurate I’m also thinking of my health and overall well being. What do vacations and health have to do with each other? A lot, actually! Taking regular vacations can boost your overall health and lead to a better quality of life…plus, they’re really fun! Marriott Resorts knows just how important vacations are to everyone’s well being and they want to help you plan your next vacation with their Celebrate Summer Event!
How a Summer Vacation Can Improve Your Health
Live Longer – Surveys have indicated that taking annual vacations reduces the incidence of heart disease. I’m all for traveling to maintain a healthy heart, what do you think?
Relieve Stress – A weekend getaway is often just what we need to put stress on the back burner. It gives us time to live in the moment rather than be caught up in bills, work, and other stressors. Try to leave your stress behind and fully enjoy your vacation. You’ll be able to tackle your problems with a new outlook when you return! Whenever I get down in the dumps or wound up over things going on in my life, I take a quick weekend getaway.
Improve Mental Health – A study has shown those that take regular vacations suffer less symptoms of depression. It also showed that vacationers are often less tired and less tense as a whole. A well rested mind is more efficient and effective.
Work Better – People tend to return to work after a vacation feeling refreshed and energized. This leads to better productivity and often an influx of creativity. Work hard, play hard, a fantastic motto to live by!
Value Yourself – It’s easy to forget that you have value when you’re punching the clock day in and out. You deserve and likely have earned a vacation. Rather than losing earned time, value yourself and remember you’re worth it!
See what I mean? Taking vacations can improve your health! All the more reason to take advantage of the Celebrate Summer Event with the Marriott Resort chain. When you book your stay prior to September 7th, 2015 you’ll receive up to $100 in resort credits for each day you stay. That’s a great way to experience vacation extras without breaking your budget. The resort credits can be used on site at the restaurants or spas. Many Marriott properties cater to families 1-3 hours away that are looking for a weekend getaway. Each resort provides that luxurious feeling while still feeling as comfortable as home. You’ll receive the personalized service and local touches you’ve come to expect from Marriott.
Each resort also pulls through it’s surroundings to offer local experiences such as s’mores at the nightly campfire at the JW in San Antonio, concerts at L.A. LIVE, or out of this world sushi at the Marco Island Marriott. Others feature lazy rivers, PGA-level golf courses, even water slides and drive-in movies. And don’t forget to grab drinks and signature cocktails in the lobby.
