Most countries have mandated vacation days and they value those days! America is one of the only developed countries that does not give mandated vacation days to its employees.
In France, they have 25 days off, the United Kingdom gets 28 days off, and Kuwait gets a whopping 30 days off for vacation.
There have been many studies that have shown that when people do not take their vacation days their risk of heart attack goes up by 30% for men and 50% for women. Vacation relieves stress by not focusing on work or the mundane like pick-up times and bills.
Vacation is also great for mental health. It resets your brain to boost mood and happiness. By exploring new things and not focusing on work you have the opportunity for your mind to be at ease.
Vacationing is great, and even a staycation can have the same health benefits as a full vacation. Try exploring something new in your town or the neighboring town. If you live in the Los Angeles area and want to explore a staycation, come to our Scarless Medspa and try something new!
