Eight reasons why holidays are good for you

Holidays are not only good fun but they are also good for your health too. If you struggle to find the time for a break from work here are some important factors to consider.

1. Reduce stress levels

No matter what position you are in or the role you lead at work there is always some level of stress involved. An escape can help reduce stress levels making you feel happier and healthier.

2. Re-connect

The hustle and bustle of everyday life can get in the way of relationships. Regardless of whether you are in a family, couple or friend relationship environment a holiday can help you reconnect and appreciate one and other.

3. Get inspired

It is easy to get caught in the repetitiveness of your job or position. A break away can recharge the batteries and refresh your inspiration. Take some time to experience and see new things. Expand your point of view and take in sunshine, laughter, good food, exercise and adventure.

4. Sleep better

The ability to sleep in, lounge around and really rest is good for the mind, body and soul.

5. Take some quality time

For the working families with children holidays are vital not only as a treat for the children but to spend some quality time together. Children grow so fast you don’t want to miss out on seeing them grow. They will also appreciate the lower stress and higher rest levels!

6. Increase productivity

Seeing and doing the same things repeatedly slows productivity. Inject a fresh point of view and added stimulation and your productivity levels will increase once more.

7. Find a balance

It is commonly known that a balanced diet is healthy for your body but so is a healthy living. All work and no play can be just as detrimental as all sugar and no fruit and vegetables. Strike a balance for a healthy existence.

8. Life is short

Not too many people look back on their life and wish they had spent more time working. More commonly the wish is to have taken more time to live and spend time with loved ones. Make the most of life while you can and have no regrets later.
