January might seem like an odd choice for taking a break due to the weather but it is in fact the perfect time to get away from it all. Christmas, although for the most part is a fun time, it can also be incredibly stressful and tiring. The demands placed on us seem great at this time of year. We might be under pressure to hit end of year work deadlines, be busy looking after children or elderly relatives, rushing around buying presents and spending a fortune on food. Not to mention the responsibilities of cooking for a family Christmas Day lunch and dealing with the inevitable family feuds that never mix well with the copious amounts of alcohol on offer.
Maybe you are one of the unlucky ones and have drawn the short straw this year by having to work on Christmas Day. If you have lots of shifts booked in over the Christmas period, then a break in January could be your only option. You’ll really deserve it too.
So, with all of the above taken into consideration, you could do with a break! For most people, January is a time for feeling a bit flat. The excesses of Christmas are gone and so is most of our money and with the weather so bleak, it can feel like there is not much to look forward to. It’s back to work and school and summer still seems a very long way off. This is why January is the perfect time to get away. You don’t have to spend a fortune going abroad when you can try something brand new and unique, much closer to home.
