Improve Your Health with a Summer Vacation

Vacations are fun and good for your spirit, but did you know they are actually good for your health, too? That's right! Going on a vacation with your family can do your body and mind some good. Our Lake of the Ozarks resort knows how great a vacation can be for you and your loved ones. If you don't believe us, take a look below for a few of the scientific reasons a vacation is good for your health.

Reduce Depression

Who doesn't feel better while on vacation? Vacations have been known to lift spirits for years. A study conducted by Marshfield Clinic determined that women who take vacations at least twice a year were less likely to suffer from depression. A survey from the University of Pittsburgh's Mind Body Center found that leisure activities, including vacations, contributed to higher positive emotional levels and less depression.

Improved Sleep Cycles

A study from Air New Zealand and former NASA scientists tested vacationers on their sleep patterns. The results showed that while on vacation, the average person got an extra hour of sleep. After returning home, that person continued enjoying 20 minutes more sleep per night. Getting enough sleep in important to both physical and mental health, so taking regular vacations is important for your overall health and well-being.

Lower Risk of Heart Disease

Going on vacation can actually help you live a longer life. Studies have shown that taking regular time off from work, at least once a year, can decrease the risk of heart disease and heart attack. According to the Framingham Heart Study, revealed that men who didn't take a vacation for several years were 30% more likely to have heart attacks than those who took time off. The study also showed that women who took a vacation only once every 6 years or less were almost 8 times more likely to develop coronary heart disease or have a heart attack compared to women who vacationed at least twice a year.

Decrease Stress Levels

A study by the American Psychological Association concluded that vacations work to reduce stress by removing people from activities and environments that tend to be sources of stress. While it may seem obvious that vacationing reduces your stress levels, the longer term effects are not as obvious. Studies found that the lower stress levels found in workers on vacation actually last up to five weeks after returning to work. These vacationers were less likely to have stress-related complaints such as headaches, backaches and heart palpitations.

Establish a Budget

Many people spend months saving up for their summer vacation. You want to make sure you enjoy yourself without breaking the bank. Creating a budget will help you do just that. Be sure to include accommodations, transportation, food and activities.

Map Out Your Route

Due to the Lake of the Ozarks' central location, it makes for the perfect road trip for many. However, some people prefer to fly. If needed, book your airline tickets and reserve a rental car. If you're driving, you'll want to plan your route. While technology is great and you can use a GPS, you'll still want to have a general idea of the route you want to take before you head out. Also, check road construction and detour routes before hitting the road!

Plan Vacation Activities

Are you traveling with children? Are you going on a romantic getaway? Find some activities that everyone in your group will enjoy and see what you can fit into your budget. Make a list of what you plan on doing during your vacation. Look to see if any special events are happening during your stay as well. Don't forget to leave some downtime and room for some spontaneous decisions, as well.

Make a List of Items to Pack

Think about what the weather will be like at your destination. If you're coming to the Lake of the Ozarks during the summer months, you can expect it to be hot. Be sure to pack your swimsuit, but don't forget a light jacket, as it can get chilly out on the water at night. If you're driving, don't forget to pack water and snacks for the trip. Creating a list ahead of time will keep you from over packing and help ensure you don't forget anything important. If you do happen to forget something, don't worry -- our centrally located resort is near a number of shopping outlets and grocery stores.
