Holidays, and in particular Glamping holidays can help to reduce stress while you’re away from the day to day world of work and all that comes with it. Glamping may improve your life over the long term if you allow yourself to relax.
So how do you take a holiday, de-stress, unwind and have these well-earned effects of a break stay with you for more than a day or two? Let us help you with these 6 handy travel tips for holding on to that ‘holiday feeling’.
- Have a holiday that fits your style
Take the time to think about what you love to do, not what you should do. Some people love adventurous, thrill-seeking breaks, whereas others love nothing more than to go exploring and then there’s those who love just lounging around as they reconnect with nature. If the holiday doesn’t fit your style, it may increase, not lower stress. So to be on the safe side, choose from our range of different glamping accommodation in various locations in the UK.
- Balance out your activities
It’s a good idea to alternate your holidaying time between staying active and enjoying some rest. Keeping active raises those feel-good endorphins, while unwinding and relaxing allows for your mind to reduce levels of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol.
- Take vacations during major holidays
Such as Christmas, the summer holidays and Easter, when many people are away and the workload is usually lighter, so you’re less worried about work piling up while you’re away.
- Take several mini vacations if you can
Having a few trips throughout the year may help to raise your overall percentage of happiness to heightened state than if you just have one holiday and then there’s nothing to look forward to until next year.
- Delegate work before you leave
It’s essential that you ensure you’re completely disconnected from the office BUT if this proving to be more stressful for you for whatever reason, allow yourself to check voice mails and email under strict time limits, say one hour a day, then switch off.
- Buffer your holiday
Don’t work right up until the moment you leave and head back to work right off the bat. If possible, schedule an extra day off before you depart and another when you come back to dive back in slowly.
