Everyone Needs a Little Rest and Relaxation in Life

By Stephen R. Farris

If you're a baby boomer like me, then you probably remember how excited you were about school letting out for summer vacation. It was a time when your parents were able to take a break themselves and pack up the family to seek out destinations unknown. Of course, it was only unknown in case your dad refused to stop and ask directions, therefore it turned into a "lost" destination.

But do you remember how it felt? To get away and experience a change for at least a week or two. If you were lucky, you got to spend the rest of your summer at your grandparents house after the vacation.

My how times have changed. People these days seem to trade their vacation days in for an extra check, or their company has an unwritten policy about taking too many days off consecutively. The bottom line is that all this can make you feel more stressed out than you normally are, yet we may not actually realize that's what it's doing to us.

Here in the United States, we seem lost to the health benefits a vacation does for the individual worker. According to research, U.S. companies -- at least a majority -- offer zero paid time off during 260 working days. Yet other comparable countries with similar economies such as the United Kingdom, which offers 28 PTO per 232 working days. Big difference indeed.

So what are the health benefits from taking time off (aka the big vacation)? Let's take a look.

  • Reduced stress
  • Good for your cardio health
  • Improved productivity on the job
  • Better sleep

It seems that Americans have grown into a "no vacation culture" over the past several decades. Wouldn't it be great if more companies opened their eyes to the health benefits of giving their employees more paid time off? 

So if you're feeling stressed out from work and you're feeling the pain from it in your back, neck and joints, then you should pay a visit to your local chiropractor, such as the licensed professionals found at The Joint Chiropractic.
