The Health Benefits of Taking a Vacation

It’s summertime. What are you doing inside? You should be enjoying the great outdoors. Perhaps a visit to Maine is in order. You can stay at Travelers Inn on Pleasant Street in Brunswick. How’s that for an address? Pleasant Street!

Life should be more pleasant than not, which is exactly why you need to take a vacation and get away from the everyday stress of “work.” This work could involve computers and cubicles, or it could involve cleaning up toys while the kids fight over what TV show to watch. Either way, a vacation can help your health– it’s good for your overall well-being.

Vacations are good for families because they help reduce anxiety and stress while increasing mental and physical health. Rather than sitting indoors viewing other people’s lives on screens, a vacation, in a place like Maine, is a chance to get outdoors in the sunshine. Soak in that Vitamin D while you throw a frisbee around, take a hike, shop at an antique store, or sit around a table with loved ones at a unique restaurant you don’t have back home.

Interestingly, taking an annual vacation has been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease. It also brings about more positivity in a person’s life, helping them feel less negative feelings. Mentally, it’s a good idea to go somewhere “else” and see new things, meet new people, and try new things. Vacation trips can also help improve relationships as friends and family bond over shared experiences. People like to “escape” together, where they can be together, relaxing, talking, and enjoying life. We all need more of THAT.

What’s there to “do” in Brunswick, Maine? You can visit the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum, the Main Street Music Theatre, the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, the Skolfield-Whittier House, Cabot Mill Antiques, Harriet Beecher Stowe House, and/or Flight Deck Brewing. Have a beer, see some art, do some shopping, or just take a nice walk along “Maine Street.” The “small town” feel is evident in Brunswick.
