St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 01, 2014
It’s been all over the headlines: Americans are among some of the most over-worked and over-stressed people in the world. A much needed break is in order for all. According to Psychology Today (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201006/the-importance-vacations-our-physical-and-mental-health), taking a vacation should rank among the top priorities for those who want to improve their fitness and wellness.
Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area's funnest, friendliest dance studio (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), knows the importance of taking a break. That’s why the studio is excited about its upcoming Mexico Fun Trip!
Here are three reasons why getting away and taking part in a few fun and relaxing activities is just what the body needs:
1. People who take vacations have stronger immune systems: stress has been linked with a host of life-altering diseases such as poor cardiovascular health, a decreased ability to fight infections, and even hair loss, just to name a few! Being healthy is not just about eating right and exercising, the body also needs rest and relaxation in order for all of its systems to run smoothly.
2. People who take vacations have healthier brains: Several studies have shown that people who take a yearly vacation have a lessened chance at developing dementia than their non-vacationing counterparts. The brain is a muscle, and like all muscles, it needs a break from time to time in order to improve its performance for memory and cognition. Basically, taking a vacation will actually make the brain healthier and smarter!
3. People who take vacations feel they have more control over their lives: Those who are stressed are less likely to get joy out of the little things, which plays a role in the development anxiety and depression. In fact, people who are multi-tasking non-stop are even more likely to get in more accidents. Studies have shown that the body’s cortisol levels are considerably reduced and regulated, which is good news for the mind-body connection.
Dance Pizazz knows that it’s not always all about movement; sometimes the body must be still in order to achieve balance. That’s why the studio couldn’t be more excited about the Mexico Fun Trip!
