With the excitement and build up to Christmas and the New Year sadly over, many people fall into January feeling sad and browbeaten, with nothing to look forward to. However, planning a holiday can help boost moods and beat the January blues.
Travel retailer MrLuggage.com take a look why January is a good time to plan a holiday.
According to HolidayLetExchange.com, last year 20% of people had booked a holiday within the first month of the year (the highest throughout the year), and this was put down to January being one of the depressing months of the year and people wanting to have something to look forward to. Having something to plan, write in the diary and get excited about does help improve positivity and increase happiness.
Booking the holiday time in at work will also be a lot easier in January opposed to in April, as not a lot of people will have secured them yet, leaving the best dates still available. For families there will also be more choice when it comes to choosing seats on flights and family rooms.
Booking in advance also leaves more time to save money and fully plan what activities there are on offer. Therefore it will be much easier to budget and make sure that nothing is missed out.
So if you are feeling the January blues, then get looking for your next getaway. And if christmas has made an impact on your waistline see our exercise tips for the new year coming soon at Sataloma Online.
