3 Reasons to Travel More in 2020

As we near the end of 2019, you may be thinking of ways you'd like to improve your life in 2020. Traveling comes with a ton of health and mental benefits. If traveling is on your new year's resolution list, our family-friendly resort at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great place to help make your goals a reality this year! Take a look below for a few of the benefits of traveling and start making plans for a summer vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks!


Benefits of Traveling:

Stress Relief

One of the most important reasons everyone should take a vacation is to reduce the amount of stress in their life. Whether you're experiencing a burnout or you have too much pressure at work, taking a vacation can dramatically reduce that stress. Don't force yourself to keep working with no breaks: your body and mind both need time away from everyday stressors and taking a vacation is a great way to accomplish that.

Improve Happiness

Studies have shown that stress can actually alter brain structure, contributing to depression and anxiety. Research shows that women who do not take regular vacations are 3 times more likely to become depressed and anxious. People who take regular vacation on the other hand, report feeling extremely happy with an overall feeling of well-being. Many of those reports stated that effects lasted well after the actual vacation as well.

Be Healthier

Research shows that going on vacation can actually improve your health. Excessive stress on your mind and body can alter your immune system and lead to illness. By reducing that stress, you'll not only feel better emotionally, but also physically. Taking a vacation is a great way to help prevent illness, from the common cold and flu to more serious conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease.


Are you itching to start traveling? Summerset Inn Resort and Villa is here for you! We can help you reach your goal of traveling more by providing the best accommodations at the Lake of the Ozarks. Summerset Inn will open in the spring and we'll be ready for your spring and summer getaways!

Relax with your Family

Unwinding is what vacation is all about! Taking time to decompress can help significantly reduce your stress levels. It can also improve your blood pressure levels, as stress can correlate to those numbers, as well. It's important to take time to relax and reward yourself for all your hard work throughout the year.

Take a Mental Break

The daily grind can wear down your mind. Your tasks can become mundane and you may start to lose interest in something you once cared about. A mental break is great for everyone! It can give you a jump start and even lead you to be more productive upon returning to your normal tasks.

Improve Sleep

Taking a break from your normal routine can actually help you sleep better. As your usual schedule is thrown off, you may find yourself being able to fall asleep easier and experience a more restful sleep, while on vacation.


Boost Energy Levels

Rejuvenate your body and mind when you take some time away from your daily tasks. Spending time with your loved ones away from the hustle and bustle of your normal schedule can do wonders for your energy levels! As mentioned before, you may return to work being more productive and having a more positive energy about you.

Good for the Heart (and soul)

Reducing stress, sleeping better, taking a mental break, and getting a boost of energy are all great benefits that can lead to a happier heart. Vacations are good for your overall well-being and it's important to take care of yourself. Treat yourself by planning a vacation with the family in the next year!
