(UPI) Being "on-call" via telephone and e-mail during a vacation detracts from one's ability to de-stress and recharge, a U.S. neuropsychologist says.
Dr. Munro Cullum … says even taking a short break can be rejuvenating, but significant de-stressing may take several days "just to get ourselves used to the idea of relaxing."…
"We hear so much negative news these days that we can get caught up in negative thought patterns, which may contribute to our own anxieties and concerns about the future," Cullum says. "If stress becomes too much it also can result in negative physiological reactions that can lead to illness, but exercise, a healthful diet and adequate sleep are important, but we also need some down time, to allow our brains to work 'offline.'"
