Do You Need a Holiday? The Benefits of Taking Time Off


Diving beyond the confines of our workstations, stretching the limits of our comfort zones, and immersing ourselves in uncharted territories is ingrained in the ethos of our workplace culture at Snowscene and Sunscene travel group.

Whether it’s as simple as relocating a meeting, stealing away for a quick weekend escape, or embarking on an extensive month-long journey, we actively foster a habit of stepping away and rejuvenating our surroundings. Wanderlust is a shared trait among us, recognised for its profound significance to each individual. Our esteemed team members have explored over 100 resorts worldwide!

Numerous studies underscore a common sentiment: many individuals find themselves neglecting breaks, working well past closing hours, taking on excessive tasks, all leading to burnout and heightened stress levels. Drawing from both research findings and firsthand experiences, we comprehend the vital role that regular breaks play in mitigating this stress, ultimately impacting our mental and physical well-being significantly.

The transformative impact of even a single day away from the office is often remarked upon by many.

We acknowledge the unmistakable benefits of holidays. Nevertheless, a gentle reminder of their critical importance for both professional performance and personal well-being may be warranted.

It is our collective experience that regular travel:

Enhanced Personal Growth: Regular travel exposes individuals to diverse cultures, perspectives, and experiences, fostering personal growth and development. It challenges preconceptions, broadens horizons, and promotes adaptability and resilience.

Improved Well-being: Traveling regularly provides opportunities for relaxation, rejuvenation, and stress relief. Stepping away from the routine of daily life allows individuals to recharge both mentally and physically, leading to reduced stress levels, increased happiness, and overall well-being.

Expanded Perspective: Regular travel offers the chance to gain new insights, broaden perspectives, and cultivate empathy. Experiencing different cultures, customs, and ways of life promotes understanding and tolerance, enriching one’s worldview and fostering a greater sense of interconnectedness with the global community.

To aid in your departure from the office and to maximize the benefits of your well-deserved break, we’ve compiled some practical tips:

Establish Clear Handovers: Detailed instructions to colleagues ensure a smooth transition, offering peace of mind during your absence. Remember, clarity fosters kindness.

Prioritize Leisure Time: While extended vacations may not always be feasible, even brief getaways offer invaluable opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation. Seize every chance to disconnect, whether it’s a long weekend or a series of short breaks throughout the year.

Involve Family: Traveling with loved ones, especially young children, may require additional planning, but it cultivates lasting bonds and cherished memories. Include your family in the planning process, tailoring activities to suit everyone’s interests.

Travel Solo or with Friends: Exploring new horizons, whether solo or with friends outside your immediate family, promotes personal growth and strengthens relationships. It’s an opportunity to foster deeper connections and gain fresh perspectives.

Plan Ahead: While spontaneity has its allure, early planning reduces stress and allows for cost-effective arrangements. Begin saving early, explore budget-friendly options, and remain flexible with travel dates to take advantage of discounts.

So, when the demands of everyday life become overwhelming, take a moment to reflect on your purpose. Grant yourself the space, time, and freedom to explore.
