A new study has shown that going on holiday can improve sleep, cut blood pressure and even aid weight loss with the health benefits being felt for at least a fortnight after the holiday and sometimes even months later.
The research was carried out by Kuoni and Nuffield Health and studies twelve people in the summer of 2012 by assessing their health and getting them to wear heart monitors. Half of the volunteers went on holiday, while half stayed at home and worked.
Tests showed that in people who went on holiday, their blood pressure dropped by 6%, compared to workers whose blood pressure rose by 2%. Sleep quality improved by 17% in holidaymakers, while it deteriorated by 14% in those who stayed at home. The ability to recover from stress increased by 29% in those who went on holiday while stress-resilience fell by 71% in workers.
Other health benefits were a fall in blood glucose levels, reduced risk of diabetes, trimmer waistlines, enhanced mood and better energy levels.
Jenny Wadlow from Suitcase.org said:
