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.
