According to an article by www.Time.com, we seem to have a problem putting work down and taking a break. If you are one of the 56% of Americans which neglected to take a vacation in the last couple years, it’s time to get out and experience the world.
Did you know we seriously damage our health when we skip not only our daily exercise, but also our yearly vacations?
There are countless studies on the cardiovascular health benefits of taking a vacation, and according to Inc.com the stats will likely shock you.
Men at risk for heart disease who skipped vacations for five consecutive years were 30 percent more likely to suffer heart attacks than those who took at least a week off each year.
Even missing one year’s vacation can be associated with a higher risk of heart disease.
Studies find similar results with women: Women who took a vacation once every six years or less were almost eight times more likely to develop heart disease, have a heart attack, or die of a coronary-related cause than those who took at least two vacations a year.
Why do we hesitate using those paid vacation days? For many, it comes down to the idea that costs and hassles of traveling aren’t worth the effort. But isn’t our health worth more?
How to Start Healthy Vacation Habits: CARIBE SUP Will Let You Vacation Anywhere
Okay, maybe you aren’t ready to jet off to the beautiful Hawaiian islands tomorrow but that doesn’t mean you can’t start taking care of your health with exercise, activity, and a little time off right away.
On an inflatable paddle board you can get out on ANY body of water and just escape your stress with little to no hassle or planning required. You are no longer limited to finding a place to rent a board or trying to fit your own fiberglass board in your car. Standup Paddle Boarding allows you to take pleasure in a low-impact, endurance building activity that will work out nearly every muscle in your body.
This fun and rewarding hobby doesn’t require lessons and won’t break the bank. You can fish, practice yoga, bring along your furry friend, or just row through some of the most beautiful places. Places that sightseeing buses and tours can’t take you. Spots that some boats can’t even squeeze into.
Whether you tour the lakes and rivers in the backyard of your own state or jet off to some of the most beautiful places in the world (like these folks seen here on the CaribeSUP blog) inflatable standup paddle boards are the way to go. You can even take a night ride with attachable LED lights!
Make Memories: Up Close and Personal

Why confine yourself to only your imagination? Why not join those who see these spectacular places up close and personal?
Imagine floating over crystal clear waters, watching the marine life swim beneath you, and most importantly not wasting away behind the office desk! What are you waiting for? Get out there today!
