Holidays are a time of relaxation, and sometimes indulging in some of my favourite foods, so this means I need to keep my balance of ‘energy in and energy out’. I may not have a strict exercise routine while away but I certainly feel so much better if I stay active.
For me, incidental exercise is usually the best way of doing that, so I’m always using the stairs instead of
lifts, walking as much as possible and, if it’s a beach or pool holiday, having fun in the water. My favourite holidays have been based around relaxation and exercise.
Every year I go on a yoga retreat and I always come back feeling so much healthier and happier and completely rejuvenated. As we get older, core strength is so important and yoga is wonderful for that. I also love meeting like-minded people who enjoy these experiences.
