This also brings the 54-year-old magnate closer to realizing his dream of spending more time outside of work, an idea that, according to science, is what more people should be aspiring to do, CNBC reports.
The 40-year research, which studied 1,222 middle-aged male executives, found that even hard-driving executives can live longer when they take vacations compared to those who do not.
The executives who vacationed for three weeks or more per year reportedly lived longer than those who vacationed for three weeks or less, indicating that longevity improves the longer a person vacations.
Researcher Timo Strandberg pointed out that neither stopping smoking nor eating better can compensate for working too hard and not taking time off.
“Vacations can be a good way to relieve stress,” Strandberg, a University of Helsinki professor, noted at this year’s European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress.
