Why you need a holiday

We all love to go on holiday, whether it’s abroad or somewhere in the UK, we enjoy getting away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life to go and relax and enjoy quality time with the family. What some of us might not know is that going on holiday can do more for us than just making us feel relaxed, we’ve listed the top 4 reasons why you need a holiday and the personal benefits you will gain from taking a break.

Regain your fitness

By going on holiday you’re forced to exercise. We do exercise on holiday without even realising we are doing it!  We walk greater distances, swim a lot more, chase around after the children and generally do a lot more movement than we do sitting at home or at our desks all day long. Doing more exercise during your day boosts your circulation and gets your blood pumping!

Sleep better

If you are having problems with your sleep, going on holiday  might help. Getting away from things that might make you stressed, such as work and household chores, will help you to achieve lower stress levels. You will be able to enjoy some peace and quiet, and catch up on some sleep that you haven’t had much of lately. If you live in a city you can be woken up from the sounds of noisy traffic, boisterous people walking past your window, loud neighbours and if you live in the countryside those noisy animals can keep you awake at night or the farmer starting his 5am working day. Ensure that you find somewhere peaceful to chill out and turn down the noise that is filling your ear drums.

Be more productive

As you are used to the dreary greys and blacks of the towns and cities, when you go on holiday you’ll feel like you are getting a breath of fresh air from the bright colours that you might get from the countryside. Our brains need stimulating and seeing the same things everyday can make us feel dull and as lifeless as the colours are. Seeing and doing the same things can reduce our mind’s efficiency so we need to make sure we are regularly stimulated to keep our minds at their best. This means a change of scenery on a holiday might help you go back to work feeling refreshed and ready to get that huge to-do list written off.

Feel inspired

If you feel like you’ve lost your get up and go, then you need some inspiration to help you to find it again. Visit somewhere that will move you, make you feel passionate, intrigued, and places that are your idea of heaven. Use websites such as UKbreakaways to look at the different options available. If you have the same routine day-in, day-out you can become very bored and dull. But by going away and enjoying the perks that a holiday brings you could be soon buzzing with enthusiasm.
