Holiday healing: how to rest, relax and revive

Long working hours, short daylight hours and juggling relationships and family life are sadly part of modern British existence - so where do you go when your stressful schedule gets too much and you want to do more than just exist? 

Whether your idea of a relaxing time is watching the sun set at a cool bar on a Balearic beach, blissing-out your body with eastern spa treatments and yoga or treating your frazzled mind to a good book, the type of trip you choose is crucial. 

 Watching the sunset can be a great way to chill out on holiday

Whether on an adventurous touring holiday in India or a pool and beach retreat in the Maldives, it's a good idea to switch off your mind to technology. Perhaps with the exception of your iPod and camera, resist checking your gadgets so much and try to focus on communicating with your holiday companions and fellow guests - it will make you feel more engaged with your immediate surroundings and you'll be able chill out more effectively. 

An African safari is the perfect destination for chilling out surrounded by nature

A great holiday option for the busy-brained traveller is an African safari holiday. Tanzania, Kenya, Botswana and Zambia are great places to see the Big Five. Take your trip at nature's pace, which, with the exception of the cheetah can be incredibly slow! Encounter elephants grazing from dawn to dusk, crocodiles bathing in the rivers and lakes and long-legged water birds mooching for morsels on the mud banks. 

 A massage on holiday is often peoples ideal way to chill out.

Another tip is to make the most of hotels and resorts offering complimentary spa treatments - make sure you take them, as even on holiday 'the routine' can get in the way of 'you time'. Great calming therapies include ancient Indian ayurveda treatments, which focus on rebalancing the body and mind, as well as many of the Thai treatments and Thai massage, which while thorough, completely revitalise the body. 

 

And if even that fails to relax you? Hotels that offer complimentary spa treatments often also offer free diving, so just take yourself off into the deep blue sea and enjoy the calm and quiet that comes from the underwater world. Beginner divers might even find that learning a new skill enhances their feelings of wellbeing and satisfaction - especially for those used to keeping busy with work and family.
