We all deserve some time away from the hustle and bustle of life, don’t we? Hitting the road, taking flight, or sailing the seas to destinations known and unknown not only can enrich your life but also makes you healthier, in both mind and body. Do you know The Health Benefits of Traveling?
“Traveling for pleasure can contribute to subjective well-being because people have more opportunities to detach from their work environment, to experience new things, and to control what they want to do during vacations,” says Paul Simeone, Ph.D., Vice President and Medical Director of Behavioral Health with Lee Health. “There’s ample research to support that positive travel experiences can make a person healthier, can strengthen their relationships, and benefits their overall wellness.”
Now that global travel restrictions have eased, getting a little time away – whether for a day, a week, or longer – from the routine of the Pandemic Life could do wonders for your mind and body.
Note: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend delaying travel if you are not fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow the CDC’s recommendations for people who are not fully vaccinated.
People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine or a vaccine authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization can travel safely within the United States. If you are fully vaccinated, follow the CDC’s recommendations to protect others when you travel.
