About 33% of people have reported themselves undergoing stress, and about 77% of people who have stress are daunting to their physical health. The stats have also stated that millennials, i.e., aged 18 to 33, are considered or diagnosed with higher stress levels.

Be it your home, Education, or a hectic job, and everyone undergoes stress that makes you feel agitated, sad, furious, frustrated, or irritable. Get away from it; there are several remedies but before that, let's see how you can identify whether you are stressed.

Relatable Enough?

If any of these issues are bothering you daily, don't worry. Just take a break. With our busy and monotonous lifestyles, we all are jaded, but to make things more exciting or, in other words, "stress-free," getting away from things for quite some time can be healthy.

Every human needs a break unless you do not pass the captcha test and are identified as a robot. However, on a serious note, it is scientifically proven that vacations or holidays can relieve stress and help you concentrate or focus better. (Aneja, N., 2015) How do you ask?

What Is Real Life Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Moment?

Why be Arjun (Hrithik Roshan in "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Moment") when you can be Imraan (Farhan Akthar from "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara" moment")? Let's live a stress-free life. If not Spain, then let's settle for a weekend at least. Why? Because it benefits not only our mental health but also our physical health. This is how:

Make Your Stress Know To Rest

According to the American psychological association, vacations or short tours reduce stress by keeping people away from the obstructive or pessimistic thoughts that take a toll on one's health. This helps them rejuvenate their mind, making them feel brisk. (Howard, D., 2009)

Risk Of Heart Attack? Not Anymore

According to studies and experimentation reports, people who take frequent breaks that help them reduce stress have 21% fewer chances of heart attacks. So relish your weekends and live longer.

Focus

Weekend getaways are the best option in case you feel off the grid when you go away to a new environment or a new place that helps you recharge your energy and capabilities and helps you focus or concentrate more on what is essential once you are back.

Happier Than Ever

It is said that a change in the environment makes you release serotonin, which is the happy hormone and, thus, makes you feel exceptional and content. Therefore, we do need a break.

The Greatest Wealth Is Your Health

To be healthy or to make your lifestyle energetic and stress-free, breaks often help. It helps improve memory, boosts performance, and makes one mentally stronger and refreshed.

No More Mental Breakdown

You often end up feeling low or are about to have a breakdown; this usually happens when there are many accumulated thoughts, and you do not have a way out. Therefore, small breaks can help you take a step back and determine your next step. Now let's focus on the stage before and how you can stick around.

Take a Stress-Free Weekend

Go On Hikes, Treks, Or Just a Nice Walk

The fresh morning breeze from the top of hills, mountains, or even a no-so-inclined platform can help you release stress from environmental change.

Lash Out

Meet your close friends or family, tell them how you feel, and open up all the bottled-up feelings. This will help you relieve stress and feel renewed. Spending quality time with your loved ones with a great laugh also lets you calm down and feel the rush of happiness. 

Watch Funny Content

Looking at all the thrillers or even action leaves a hard-held feeling that might stress you more thus, spend your weekends watching humor content and laughing your stress out.

Me Time

Spending time with yourself, taking on a date, and giving your mind some time to digest your thoughts and relax is essential. This can help you figure out our path with more efficiency.

The End

Thus, in conclusion, weekends are meant for your self, to assimilate and process your thoughts, so take a step back and ease up. For better well-being, mental health should also be prioritized to process thoroughly. We all need a break. So make full use of that weekend's adventures to have a Healthy lifestyle.  (Fritz, C., Sonnentag, S., Spector, P.E. and McInroe, J.A., 2010)
