Why not use yoga to help you forget work on holiday?
New research has looked into just how much we actually relax when we head off on holiday - or rather how much we don't relax!
In fact, the study from BA Holidays showed that on average, British workers relax for only four days of their holiday during a two week long break.
A fifth of the sample felt they had more chance of switching off from the world of work if they went on a shorter break instead of a longer one - as a result of the fact that on a short break they wouldn't be so concerned about how much work they'll need to do to catch up!
On average, workers are checking their emails, texting their fellow workers or phoning them by the time their second week away begins. A fifth said they always got worried about the subject of work when they were away on a break.
And over 25 per cent dreaded how much work was mounting up for them while they weren't in the workplace.
Meanwhile, one-fifth admitted that they thought about the workplace from the poolside or beach!
”Many believe that getting away from things for two weeks means you can really switch off – more so than if you just went for a long weekend away. But it seems for some the opposite is actually true," commented BA Holidays managing director, Claire Bentley.
”Our most popular short breaks among workers are for stays in Boutique hotels in cities such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan and Berlin, highlighting that many workers are opting for luxury short breaks to get maximum relaxation and minimum time worrying about work.”
If you find you can't stop thoughts of work surfacing while you're away, and feel that it would really be a better idea to focus on doing something else, then why not take your yoga equipment with you on your trip away?
If you're an experienced and passionate yoga fan, then you could spend some quality time doing your favourite holiday, and it could help you feel more relaxed, and more like you're spending your time off focused on something other than work!
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)
