Restarting MYSQL and Apache

Is it recommended to restart MYSQL and Apache after a certain number of days, even if they are running properly or for that matter rebooting the VPS after few days?

For example my VPS has been running for almost 40 days and Apache and MYSQL haven't been restarted for over 17 days.
I don't restart anything unless there's a problem or I need to reload for configuration changes.

Right now my server's been running for 44 days 16 hours. Prior to that it's gone as long as 150 days. I'm sure there are others with hundreds of days.

Apache I just rebooted Friday but only because I upgraded Mod_security.
