Stress build-up is one of the most occurring factors of human health deterioration. Unfortunately, most people’s lives are stressful due to the immense need to be competitive in the current world. Yet, there is this constant feeling of worthiness, determined based on people’s goals and achievements. Now is the time that the importance of vacationing has finally come into the light. Experts on mental health urge people to stop feeling guilty while taking a break for themselves. There are a majority of people who regard overworking as an achievement that they could boast about. These workaholics need to understand that this is a very toxic trait in the long run as it builds up a lot of stress unknowingly.

The reasons behind stress are different for each individual, but the effects are the same. But in the majority, stress is caused due to intense living arrangements that do not dedicate time and importance for relief and relaxation.


Effects of stress on human health:

Stress is majorly responsible for releasing cortisol, a hormone that can be very destructive to one’s overall health. It creates a negative feedback loop in the brain, neglecting the person’s right to happiness or fulfilment. Mentally, stress is also one of the main factors for lack of memory and focus. Heavy stress build-up can also lead to severe anxiety, depression, and feeling overwhelmed all the time. Physically, it can be a factor leading to heart diseases and high blood pressure. Stress often indicates its presence in the form of frequent headaches, various muscle tensions/pains, or fatigue. People also respond by indulging themselves in toxic behavioural traits, like alcohol and tobacco consumption, or resorting to overeating as a way of stress relief in attempts of numbing it. Suppressing stress and resorting to such numbing behaviour only impact one’s health more negatively with other diseases.

One must understand the importance of allocating time to refresh and re-energize oneself. Quick breaks from everyday activities can be a great way to relieve some of that stress build-up and increase one’s overall mental and physical health. These breaks should be filled with activities that bring fulfilment and joy into one’s life, like pursuing passions that rekindle their creativity. Inculcating quick breaks into a daily routine can effectively reduce stress on some levels.

Vacationing and holidaying is one of the best ways to debunk stress, as it is often a lengthier break from everyday routines and responsibilities. There is no better way than going on a vacation with one’s closest people. Just a two-hour drive away from Sydney, the Hunter Valley region is one of the best locations for a large group vacation with various activities to do. With exemplary wineries to discover different tastes of wine, calming hot-air balloon rides over the valley, taking a stroll by the beach, hiking, kayaking, and many more activities, Hunter Valley holidays could easily make one of the best memories of a person’s life.
