If you need another reason to take a holiday, here it is.

 Australians are being urged to take holidays and take advantage of your annual leave.

A recent Roy Morgan study revealed Australians have accrued more than 100 million days of leave in total. This amounts to more than four weeks per person, indicating most people aren’t taking much time off work.

Taking advantage of your annual leave and going on a holiday is proven to have incredible benefits mentally, physically and emotionally.

Benefits can include:

  • Improving sleep
  • Reducing blood pressure
  • Increasing happiness
  • Increasing perceived energy levels
