Stress is a silent killer. If there is anything that can help us fight it, we’d be all in. Turns out that joining the Travelers’ Club might be our ticket in.

A study by Westman and Etzion in 2002 shed light on the effect of taking vacations and burnout and stress. People who took more breaks experienced less stress and absenteeism. Another 2012 survey by Expedia showed that 89 percent of vacationers found they could significantly unwind and relax after only one day or two into their trip.

This is proof that you don’t necessarily need a 6-month sabbatical to ease your mind when any kind of travel is good for your health.
