The Secret to a Healthy and Productive New Year
Everyone wants to be healthier, happier, and more successful in the coming year. Nevertheless, the majority of people start off with good intentions only to abandon their New Year’s resolutions soon after making them. The problem with most resolutions is that they are unrealistic, difficult, and boring.
Fortunately, there is another way to achieve your goals for 2014. The secret to improving your health and being more productive is… taking a vacation. Now I know that this sounds too good to be true. But study after study has found that people who take vacations enjoy serious benefits. Read on to learn why staying in one of our Gatlinburg chalets should be your New Year’s resolution.
Taking a vacation can save your life. A 20 year study found that women who took two vacations per year were eight times less likely to have a heart attack. The same study also found that men who didn’t take a vacation were 32 percent more likely to have a heart attack than those who took time off. Additionally, research has shown that people who take vacations are thinner than workaholics.
A major source of all health problems, from obesity to heart disease, is stress. Taking a vacation is an ideal way to escape the tension of everyday life and truly relax. Spending a week in one of our chalets in Gatlinburg will do wonders for your health. Breathing in the crisp mountain air while you admire the Smokies from your chalet’s porch is a completely natural way to unwind.
Be More Productive
Studies have also found that people who return to work from vacation are more productive and creative. People who work too many consecutive weeks without a break simply get burned out. Taking some time off to recharge your batteries is important for anyone and everyone with a job.
