Rest, the difference between a great summer holiday and an amazing one!

Every year as the summer holidays approach we all look forward to getting away from our fast-paced lives. For some, the holiday is about spending time with family and friends and visiting sun-drenched locations, for others, it might be a good book by a pool and discovering new food in a local market. Whilst all of these add up to create the perfect escape we wanted to talk about one vital ingredient that can elevate a great summer holiday to an amazing one and that is: Rest.

Rest can be defined as a state of tranquility and repose, where the mind and body find solace in a temporary escape from daily responsibilities and obligations. It goes beyond mere physical inactivity; it encompasses mental, emotional, and spiritual rejuvenation. Rest allows us to recharge our energy levels, foster creativity, enhance productivity, and reconnect with our inner selves.

Making time to rest replenishes our energy reserves and revitalises our mind and body ready to go into the rest of the year. There is nothing worse than getting back from your break feeling as if you need another one.

Here are a few of our top tips and product suggestions to help you rest and relax transforming your holiday experience from ordinary to extraordinary.

  1. Plan well ahead: This will help you feel organised and reduce any last-minute stress.
  2. Set clear boundaries: Establish boundaries for work and your family during your vacation. Avoid checking work emails or engaging in work-related activities unless absolutely necessary and allocate time that is just for you and the things you want to do.
  3. Unplug from technology as much as possible: This is a hard one, consider limiting your use of technology during your holiday. Put your phone on silent mode, avoid checking social media excessively, and resist the temptation to constantly document your experiences. Time for a good book, replace scrolling with page-turning, you'll thank us for it.
  4. Pack with Rest and Relaxation in mind: Pack any items that will contribute to your relaxation. Consider bringing a journal, or that book you have been meaning to read but never got around to plus any other items that will help you unwind and enjoy your downtime.
  5. Reconnecting with family and friends the right way: Without the pressure of everyday life the holidays afford us the time to enjoy each other's company, this is a real gift. Laughter, shared experiences and delicious food are always better with the ones you love.
  6. Engage in activities you enjoy: Make a list of activities that you find enjoyable and relaxing. This could include reading, taking walks, practicing yoga, meditating, or simply lounging by the pool or beach. Prioritise these activities and allocate dedicated time for them during your holiday.
  7. Explore your destination at your own pace: While it's great to explore new places and engage in sightseeing, avoid overloading your schedule with activities and tours. Allow for plenty of free time to simply wander, discover hidden gems, and soak up the atmosphere of your destination.
  8. Treat yourself: Prioritise your sleep, eat nutritious meals, and engage in activities that will help you unwind.
  9. Connect with nature: Spend time in natural surroundings, whether it's a serene beach, a scenic mountain landscape, or a peaceful forest. Nature has a calming effect and can help you recharge.
  10. Be flexible and go with the flow: Allow yourself to embrace spontaneity and flexibility during your holiday. Don't be too rigid with your plans or expectations. Sometimes the best moments and experiences happen when you least expect them.
