How to live longer: Is it time for a holiday? It could boost your life expectancy

If you’ve got some holiday days left to take this year, make the most of them. Tirelessly working for the whole year isn’t doing your health any favours. In fact, a little bit of relaxation here and there could add years onto your life.

One study found that men at high risk of coronary artery disease – who failed to take annual vacations – were 32 percent more likely to die of a heart attack.

In the same vein, in the longstanding Framingham Heart Study, women who seldom went on holiday were at higher risk of coronary heart disease and a heart attack.

Specifically, women who hadn’t taken a holiday at least once every six years were eight times more likely to die earlier than those who vacationed twice a year.
