They say that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and I agree. Mining titanium can prove to be a daunting task if you do it continuously without taking any breaks. I would recommend that you take a vacation every now and then to refresh your energy. Below, we are going to list some of the advantages of going on vacations:

Take a Break from Titanium Mining

Vacations Relieve Stress

Originally, stress was meant to help us and keep us safe, being a true physiological response. Cortisol and epinephrine were hormones produced for the fight or flight response that was necessary for early man. However, in modern society, chronic stress poses a danger to our lives. Going on a regular vacation and leaving behind the everyday stresses of the mines give us a break from the constant high levels of these hormones and a chance to repair some of the damage.

Vacations Help Prevent Heart Disease

Heart disease and high blood pressure are some of the conditions that can be brought about due to stress, studies have shown that going on a vacation reduces the chances of both diseases. Men who vacationed regularly were more than 32% less likely to die from a heart attack, while for women it was 50% less. (2010 Framingham Heart Study)

Vacations Help Maintain Focus

According to studies, chronic stress can affect the part of the brain that inhibits goal-directed activities and causes problems with memory. People tend to feel blocked and distracted, having problems concentrating, when they work the titanium mines for long periods without vacations. Surveys show almost three-quarters of people who vacation regularly feel energized and readier to tackle the tasks at hand.

Vacations Help Prevent Illness

In a field of research called psychoneuroimmunology that finds stress and its adrenal dysfunction can alter the immune system, making a person more susceptible to numerous illnesses such as colds and flu, and even irritable bowel syndrome. Long term stress could even cause cancer. According to studies, people that go on regular vacations feel and are healthier.

Vacations Improve Your Sex Life

I’m imagining that when you’re in the mines, you’re away from your spouse for quite a long time. A sexvacation would be a good way to spice up your sex life with your partner. Studies have revealed that high cortisol levels associated with stress create a negative feedback loop in the brain, lowering the levels of sex hormones like testosterone, contributing to loss of libido.

Occidental Vacation Club

Since we are talking about going on vacations, we might as well look at the Occidental Vacation Club, a solution to your vacations. It is a fully owned subsidiary of Occidental Hotels & Resorts Group from Spain. The OVC aim at providing their members with high quality, hassle free, all-inclusive vacations in as many destinations as possible at a reasonable price.

The vacation Club is part of a Hotel Company, meaning that it is not like the traditional timeshare condos. The hotels are full service, all-inclusive properties with several restaurants (as many as 8), bars and entertainment facilities. This allows the Club to provide a membership with higher levels of service and facilities. Those that have a First Club or Grand Level membership are entitled to a fully stocked bar in the room, members lounge, private restaurant and exclusive beach area with butler service.
