Brits should try and get away at Christmas, says expert

Tired Britons should consider winter sun breaks this December to help them relax and recover from a busy year.

Psychologist Cliff Arnall said that the festive season is a vacation as much as it is a celebration and it is an ideal opportunity to unwind.

"It is about doing something different that is authentic to you and includes a major amount of relaxation as well," he added.

"A winter holiday is good for the soul. It is something refreshing, different and a real opportunity to let go of the performance element of Christmas and get some serious relaxation and pampering," Mr Arnall stated.

He went on to say that a warm destination would be ideal for a festive getaway, while ensuring that there are relaxation and fun elements to help everyone enjoy it.

According to research from Conrad Koh Samui, over half of the population is considering going abroad for the Christmas period.
