A 2011 study by the State University of New York at Oswego that surveyed 12,000 men between ages 35 and 57, found that men who go on vacation every year reduce their overall risk of death by 20%. While men who didn’t take any vacations in five years had the highest death rate and incidence of heart disease than any other men surveyed.
Experts from the University of Pittsburgh and Radboud University both said that people had more energy and felt more satisfied with life on vacation.
A Wisconsin Medical Journal published findings that women who take two or more vacations a year are less likely to be depressed, tired, or unhappy with their marriage. They found that women who took frequent vacations were less likely to become depressed, tense, or tired. Women who rarely took vacations were likelier to have stress at home and sleep less.

It has also been scientifically established that taking vacations reduces the incidence of burnout.

Besides getting you away from daily stressors, a vacation often gives you the opportunity to catch up on sleep and exercise, two simple remedies for many aches and pains.
