Being in the same environment for a prolonged period of time isn’t ideal. People who travel not only move their bodies more often — thus getting more blood pumped in their bodies. Travelers also take a break from their daily-life stressors.

Framingham, Mass. did a long-running heart study on women aged 45 to 64. The results that were linked to travel confirmed what we suspected for a very long time. The study asked these women how often they took vacations. Twenty years later, the follow-up study revealed that those who vacationed every six years (or less frequently) were almost 8 times more likely to develop a heart attack or coronary death compared to those who vacationed at least twice a year.
