Why a weekend away can make all the difference

Jenai Laignel / 31 October 2014

We all know that a couple of weeks abroad can do wonders for the stress levels, allowing us to come back refreshed and with fully-charged batteries.




However, if you simply don't have the time to go away for this long, or if you've already had a holiday but are still craving a bit of down time, have you considered a long weekend away somewhere in the UK?

Think of a mini break as a 'power nap'. OK, so it might not be a full eight hours sleep, but it really can make all the difference.
