Anyone who’s traveled can say that it does the soul good, but did you know that there are actual scientifically proven health benefits to taking a vacation?

Surveys from the Global Coalition on Ageing show that even a short trip can help you relax and leave your worries behind. Active traveling can also lower health risks for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, heart disease, colon cancer, breast cancer, depression levels and more. Many doctors claim that it can improve brain health and builds brain resilience, which can stave off dementia. Traveling in groups can help make memories and build friendships which can reduce the risk of depression. All of these benefits help with healthier aging, keeping you active, refreshed, and feeling young.

Community First Solutions encourages older adults to keep their adventuring spirit with the Trips and Travel program. Trips and Travel allows you to experience the world either right in your backyard, or from paradise. The exciting, affordable, and convenient trips include transportation, meals, tickets, and scheduling, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy.

So go ahead, take a trip. It’s good for your health!
