10 reasons to take a holiday
Holidays are healthy
Are you a workaholic? No? So, when was the last time you took a holiday?
Health experts are now saying that taking a regular holiday isn't a luxury, it's a necessity, to combat the stresses of work and our faster lifestyles. Did you know, Australians alone have a staggering 70 million annual leave days stockpiled? Are you one of these tens of thousands of people in need of a holiday?
Here are 10 reasons why you should start packing and book in your next holiday break now
Holidays provide us with a welcome opportunity to truly relax and leave behind our daily routines, like fighting peak hour traffic, paying bills and meeting strict deadlines.
Time to recharge
You can take an energising break and recharge your batteries. Get your blood pumping again with some hiking, skiing or white water rafting.
Retreat and disconnect
Disconnect from your email and mobile phone and enjoy some peace and solitude. Lose yourself in a good book or in a log cabin in the mountains and enjoy the fresh air, the stillness of the night or a beautiful morning sunrise.
Reconnect with your partner or even with yourself and your passions.
Discover new territory and have an adventure
Swap your regular holiday destination with one that's out-of-the-ordinary, exotic or exhilarating and expose your senses to new territory and adventures.
Create special memories
Be they romantic, with your kids, or something else that's really meaningful to you.
Slow down and catch up on some sleep
Sometimes the secret to enjoying life is as simple as slowing down. Reduce your hectic pace, include some early nights and afternoon siestas, unrushed meals, walks, or a massage.
Reflect and celebrate
Allow yourself time to reflect, to review your life and appreciate and celebrate all that you're grateful for.
Enjoy more time together as a couple or a family
Extended time away from our day-to-day routines gives us greater opportunities to share enjoyable outings and experiences together.
One of the best things about taking holidays is it gives us time to be spontaneous and do exactly what we want, when we want. How blissful!
