“Ho-li-day”. When we utter the word, it melts in our mouth like a lump of sugar... the excitement that builds up all year as we make plans to go to different destinations and indulge in different experiences.
And, yet, when our holidays finally arrive, many of us are incapable of disconnecting and resting.
It’s been proven! Many Spaniards state that they can’t disconnect from work in summer. This is no minor matter: knowing how to disconnect is a must when it comes to being happier, enjoying the moment and, yes, even improving our performance. We need to learn how to stop, leave the routine behind and disconnect from the workplace during our downtime.
It’s not easy. Because we’re used to filling our time up with thousands of activities. We don’t know how to “waste” time. But it’s high time we learned. A few ideas to help you:
(A quick side note here: it’s our duty to remind you to protect your skin from UV rays if you practise an outdoor sport. We recommend our latest product: PROTEOS SCREEN SPF 50+. Not only does it moisturise the skin thanks to the proteoglycans, it also protects it from ultraviolet rays. And since its velvety texture is instantly absorbed, you won’t even notice you’re wearing it.
And, finally, our top tip: TAKE A NAP. Experts believe that taking a 20-30 minute nap after lunch is the perfect way to recharge your batteries. It’s a habit we don’t usually get into the rest of the year. So, for that reason alone, make the most of it! #SmartAging attitude.
