Ah, Summer—everyone’s favorite season for picnics, beaches, long lazy days in the sun and of course, summer vacations. It’s no mystery that people on vacation are more relaxed. The Daily Mail reports, “Jetting off to exotic destinations such as the Maldives cuts your blood pressure, helps you sleep better and bounce back from stress.” But alas, summer does more than keep us mellow. Safe exposure to the sun is a major source of vitamin D, which is one that we need for overall health. If you can’t afford to quit your job and chase an endless summer, we suggest as an alternative, that you jet off to some sun-filled winter vacation destinations to keep you happy until spring.
