A lot of Canadians are living A Guy’s Guide to Mental Health lifestyles, according to Statistics Canada. (As if you needed us to tell you!). That means when you take a vacation, you want to forget all about your woes and have a bit of fun.

Stress can have several negative health consequences including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and immune and circulatory complications. So whether you’re planning a Vegas trip with your buddies, heading to a tropical beach, or hitting the slopes, check out these 3 great ways to enjoy a stress-free vacation.

  1. Look at your phone once in the morning – Turning off your smartphone is an ideal way to take in your surroundings and max out quality time with family and friends. Sure, you might miss a Facebook notification or two, but you’ll soon realize – it doesn’t really compare to freedom.
  2. Start your day with a healthy activity – Get active before you head for that all-you-can-eat buffet. Not only does a morning activity get your blood pumping, you’ll be more alert and feel more relaxed by the end of the week.
  3. Enjoy yourself – That’s right, you don’t get to head home before you do something just for you. Front-row seats to fight night? Do it! Bungee jumping or a skydive? Why not? Whatever gets you out of your comfort zone and feeling like a boss, just make sure you have fun. What else is a vacation good for?
