As if I actually needed another reason to take a vacation, Conde Nast’s Traveler magazine reported that taking just 2 vacations a year can cut a person’s risk of heart attack by 50%!! There is actual evidence that shows that taking an annual (or, ideally, bi-annual) vacation can truly reduce your risk of heart attack and death. And in a Framingham Heart Study, participants who took the fewest vacations turned out to be statistically most at risk to suffer a heart attack. So what are you waiting for?! Pack those bags now!
