We are living in an era where long working hours are seen as a sign of commitment and taking time off is often seen as a sign of poor work ethic . Whether this is a carefully crafted way by those at the top to make their subordinates work longer hours or it stems from our never-ending desire for success is up for debate, but one thing is for sure: vacations are crucial for good health. Here is how skipping vacations can take a toll on your health and coax you to book an appointment with a top psychologist in Lahore.

1-Increased Stress Levels:

Vacations can rejuvenate you by taking you away from the monotonous environment, people and activities that might be stressing you out. Studies have found out that going on holidays reduces job-related stress. And the best part is that the effects are long-lasting, and can even be felt long after the vacations.

2-Increased Stress-related Physical Complaints:

Vacations aren’t just good for your peace of mind; they can also be good for physical illnesses triggered by stress such as backaches, headaches, and heart irregularities. Many studies have also reported that taking a vacation is good for heart health. In fact, not going on vacations for a long time may put you at a higher risk of developing heart diseases. Ofcourse, health problems cannot be attributed to one factor alone and this text doesn’t intend to scare you, it merely outlines the importance of taking a vacation.

3-Reduced Productivity:

In a bid to achieve more, we often end up harming our productivity levels. While you may feel that getting more work done in a short amount of time is the key to be a productive, consistent focus is what you should strive for instead.

Various firms have reported that the productivity of their employees increase when they are given more time off. In fact, people who take vacations have been found to be more productive than those employees who spend more time working and don’t really need to book an appointment with a top psychologist in Lahore.

4-Restless Nights:

When there is too much going on in your mind, you might find it difficult to fall asleep or remain asleep. When you are constantly under pressure, it affects your sleep, which reduces alertness, affects cognitive functions, and increase chances of accidents. On the other, when you go on a holiday, you get a chance to take your mind off everything and relax. Taking time off will help alleviate stress and enable you to reset your sleep pattern.

If you have been under a lot of stress lately and it is leading to physical issues such as headaches as well, it is recommended that you visit a specialist doctor and get help.
