The idea of going on a holiday is a new invention, and has evolved throughout the last two centuries. Historically, this purpose of traveling for recreation was the ultimate luxury that only rich people could afford. In fact taking a break from your job for reasons besides for religious duties was frowned upon. Nevertheless, the contemporary idea of holiday was led by the later religious movement promoting spiritual retreat and activity. Thankfully the modern concept of travel has changed drastically since then and it is most definitely not only for the rich anymore!
The modern concept of travelling for leisure has been replaced by something more practical, it is now possible to go on a trip with friends or family without having to feel guilty about taking a short break from your demanding job and instead focusing on the endless positive benefits of a vacation that are so often overlooked due to responsibilities, deadlines and pressure.
When we encounter stressors in life, we may feel physical, mental and emotional stress, and these tensions will feed off of one another, festering into a huge uncontrollable mess. Feeling physically tense will increase the mental and emotional stress and vice versa. Conversely, relaxing the body physically will help alleviate mental tension, and relaxing your brain will help you to physically relax and release stress in the body. When the stress reaction is no longer triggered, it grows far easier to face challenges in a proactive, calm manner. Meaning when you get back to work, you'll be thinking clearer, feeling more positive and energetic and ultimately perform much better than before!
