Holidays are great!
We need them, just like we need weekends. Have you ever found though that it takes a few days to wind down at the start of your break and then you're bogged down for the last few days by the prospects of returning to the coalface?
You might think about opting for a health, fitness and activity based break. You don't need to kill or torture yourself, but it's a great feeling to go home after a break (even a short one) feeling sharper and healthier than you did when you left.
When you join a well run healthy holiday, there are some serious advantages.
More of the little details are taken care of; your food, activities, spa treatments, relaxation, days out, days by the pool can all be included in the programme, so there's no need for you to run around organising things.
But when you've people who are really into health providing your meals, and looking after your health and fitness, you can return home feeling fantastic.
If you decide to do a few hours of great training every day, throw in yoga, meditation, mindfulness sessions, massage and so on, the experience can be a truly uplifting one!
There'll still be plenty of time for the beach, pool, the odd glass or two of vino or whatever, and you'll have detoxed without evening noticing it!
So it might be worth thinking about heading off with the notion that you won't return home with a sozzled liver and weighing half a stone heavier. There'd be a decent chance you'll still have enjoyed your few drinks and manage to have lost a couple of inches.
On a serious note, the body as well as the mind needs a proper break from the stresses of everyday living, so it's well worth to give it a boost and look after it as well as you can most of the year.
If the notion of a full-on health and fitness / strength and conditioning retreat or whatever feels like too much for you, then just see if you can arrange a break where you can have more of a happy medium.
Whichever you choose, or if you'd like to have a chat, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
