Studies have shown that being absent from work can have physical and mental health benefits. People who take vacations have less stress, lower risk of heart disease, a better outlook on life, and more motivation to achieve their goals. In many ways, summer holidays offer a classroom as important as one that includes desks, books and teachers. It means spending quality time exploring, whether in the backyard or in the woods, and unleashing creativity, talent and fun.
Along with relaxation, summer vacations offer unique opportunities to learn and develop social skills. New educational and social experiences can occur in the park, or during family vacations and other outings where children can freely and organically practice appropriate interactions. These opportunities can help improve your understanding of social cues through situations that wouldn't normally occur in a structured classroom. A shorter summer vacation reduces vacation time, with less spending on accommodation, entertainment, dining and other shopping.
Students studying during summer vacation can better take advantage of the concepts from the previous year while they are still fresh in their minds. Studies from several groups, including Psychology Today and the American Psychological Association, have shown that rest from vacation or other free time helps reduce irritability, depression, and anxiety.
