Video: Regular Vacations: Prescription for a Healthy Lifestyle

on times by 30 to 40 percent. In addition, quality of sleep increases by about one hour a night upon return from vacation. "Simply put, people can't afford not to take a vacation," says de Graaf.

"It's time for over-stressed Americans to write their own prescription: 'Take Two Weeks and Call Me in the Morning'," says de Graaf. "That regular vacation break will keep people out of the doctor's office and enjoying life."

The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) has long promoted the need to vacation at least once a year. "Spending quality time away from the stresses of daily life and ensuring that every member of the family will have the necessary space to rejuvenate adds value to the vacation experience," said Howard Nusbaum, president and CEO of ARDA. "We look forward to working with John to help make the connection that Americans are vacation deprived and that taking a regular vacation will provide long-lasting health and family benefits."
