Health Benefits of a Holiday in January

We all have busy and stressful lives, and the festive season can bring with it the worst of it. So January is the perfect time for some rest and relaxation. Kicking the New Year off in style. There are many health benefits of enjoying a week or two in the sunshine. We’re not even specifically talking about wellness holidays. Just to a fun, sun-filled getaway.

Vitamin D isn’t something we get a lot of in the UK, and a deficiency can make you sick, reducing your immune system and can damage your bones. A boost in it can counteract all of this as well as the effects of seasonal affect disorder.
