Take more short breaks to get holiday feel good factor

Britons are being encouraged to take more short breaks as these can improve the health and well-being of a person.

According to a study carried out in the Netherlands, following a trip abroad workers find that the feel good factor of their holiday wears off within two weeks once they are back in the office.

The answer to this problem is to take more time off to relax and unwind.

"Vacations give people the opportunity to (re)connect to family, the partner and friends. They help us to ‘refill our batteries’, remain productive and perform on high levels. The fact that the after-effects are short-lived only emphasises that we should go on a vacation more frequently in order to keep our levels of health and well-being high," said Jessica de Bloom, publishing her findings in The Psychologist.

Recently, GfK-Ascent MI found that bookings have surged for short haul excursions, with a rise of nine per cent so far this summer on last year's figures.
