NEW YORK (Dispatches) -- New research shows that using, instead of losing, your vacation time can be beneficial to your heart health.
"What we found is that people who vacation more frequently in the past 12 months have a lowered risk for metabolic syndrome and metabolic symptoms," says Bryce Hruska, an assistant professor of public health at Syracuse University's Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics. "Metabolic syndrome is a collection of risk factors for cardiovascular disease. If you have more of them you are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease. This is important because we are actually seeing a reduction in the risk for cardiovascular disease the more vacationing a person does. Because metabolic symptoms are modifiable, it means they can change or be eliminated."
Bottom line: A person can reduce their metabolic symptoms -- and therefore their risk of cardiovascular disease -- simply by going on vacation.
Hruska says that we are still learning what it is about vacations that make them beneficial for heart health, but at this point, what we do know that it is important for people to use the vacation time that is available to them. Our research suggests that if people use more of this benefit, one that's already available to them, it would translate into a tangible health benefit."
