If you are like me and at this time of year feel in desperate need of a mid-year escape away from your everyday routine. There is no doubt about it holidays are an amazing way to revive the whole family!

Here are 7 cool reasons why family trips are fantastic for your health:

1. Improve your fitness

Being on holiday with the kids gets us moving but in a fun way…exploring new places, swimming heaps, chasing the kids around and trying cool new sports on offer.

2. Feel inspired

Getting away from your usual environment is good for the soul. Sunshine, laughter, good food, exercise and fresh air make you feel revived and relaxed!

3. Hang out with your partner

Getting to spend some time with your partner away from your normal routine is heaven. It is a great chance to reconnect and relax.

4. Eat yummy healthy food

Exploring new places provides great opportunities to try some scrummy fresh & healthy local produce & the kids will love sampling new delicacies.

5. Catch up on some sleep

Holidays offer you a massive chance to unwind and sleep loads, a great way to lower stress levels. Even if your kids aren’t sleeping well you can take turns to sleep in and take an afternoon nap.
6. Chilling with the family 
Life is often busy at home and we can all be off in different directions. Going on holiday together and experiencing new adventures is just pure gold. Some of our happiest times are spent on holiday!

I certainly don’t need much convincing to getaway but if it’s good for your wellbeing then holidays are a must in our house!

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
