8 Advantages of Taking a Holiday

Have you been staring longingly out your office window
lately dreaming of far off destinations and the chance to hit the
carefree and open road? It sounds as if you are in desperate need of a
holiday: that glorious break from reality. Often with the hectic nature
of day to day life and routine it can be difficult to find the time to
simply stop and take a breather. Here are 10 reasons why everyone needs
to take that moment to enjoy a much-needed and necessary break from
reality: 

1. Forget the routine 

Taking a holiday is a great chance to break away from the
9-5 lifestyle for a while. You know the one; rushing to get the kids to
school, swigging back a coffee and throwing together lunchboxes
simultaneously all while trying not to be late to work. Enjoying a few
weeks off gives you time to catch up on sleep and live outside of the
rigid routine. 

2. Go where you’ve never been 

Those precious few weeks of annual leave each year offer
you the chance to explore unchartered territories. Hire a camper, hit
the road and start discovering destinations that you’ve never seen or
even thought of before. Have you been waiting for the chance to explore
Australia’s Red Centre or desperate to float through the turquoise
waters of the Whitsundays? Well, your next holiday is the ideal time to
do so. 

3. Re-energise and Refocus 

Research shows that a holiday allows people to feel more
energised and satisfied with life and even improves productivity while
at work. Make that important break from your routine and come back
feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to face the world. 

4. Reconnect with those around you 

Remember those people that you live with? The ones you
briefly see each morning and night? A holiday is a great time to
re-connect with those people and spend some quality time together. Hire a
family camper, switch off your phone, tablets and computers and simply
catch up. 

5. Disconnect 

A holiday is a convenient excuse to switch off your phone
and disable your email account. Enjoy some deserved peace and solitude
and read a book instead. Hiring a camper is a great way to enjoy peace
and quiet away from technology and city-life. Simply drive away from
built-up areas, set yourself up by the beach and get ready for a
brilliant sunset and that longed for peace and quiet. 

6. Create new memories 

The memories created on a holiday are the sort to last a
life-time and keep you going on more monotonous days. If you’re
embarking on a self-drive adventure don’t forget your camera! Put
together an album so you have something tangible to reflect back on. 

7. Have fun & do something you’ve never done before

Part of going on holiday means that you have the
opportunity to encounter experiences or activities that you have never
done before. Whether it is your dream to go snorkeling, bush-walking or
skydiving – a holiday is the time for trying the new. 

8. Stay healthy 

A break from your usual routine is necessary for keeping
our minds and bodies in a healthy condition and can even add to your
life expectancy! Take a holiday and give your immune system the boost
that it needs.
