The summer holiday is approaching… Get ready!

A full year has passed since your last summer holiday, and you are looking forward to your forthcoming break with some eagerness. You are not alone.

Why is taking a holiday good for you?

Open your horizon

Holidays provide a break from day-to-day activities and may offer some unusual experiences which will extend your knowledge and skills.

Relieve stress

Having time to relax and clear your head of personal and/or professional worries will fight anxiety, hypertension, and lowers your heart rate, all of which can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stress related diseases.

Strengthen relationships

Holidays are a time for reunions and sharing thus making it possible to strengthen family and friendly ties which may have been neglected due to long working hours. Reuniting with family and friends is essential for a good psychological balance.

Some HR professionals also believe that when employees return from vacation, they are not only more productive, but also contribute to increased productivity.

How to prepare for your holiday?

Keep hydrating - Good hydration is essential for the functioning of the body. This is because an adult is made up of 60% water.

Taking care of your body and skin

If your busy schedule keeps you from exercise, gradually build up activity with short sessions of 10 to 15 minutes until you can reach at least 30 minutes activity a day for most days of the week. Remember to drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after exercise.

Your skin will appreciate a little extra TLC, so remember to wear sun protection, stay in the shade, eat a balanced diet, and keep hydrated.

Boost your diet

The summertime sees a prolific amount of fresh fruit and vegetables filled with various vitamins and minerals, which can be eaten cooked or raw. The long and warm summer days will cause your body organs to function slower, resulting in a smaller appetite.

Respite Tea will accompany you wherever you decide to enjoy your holiday, offering five flavoursome blends which can be consumed hot or cold.

Have a playful and restful time. Everyone needs a respite!
