As we shiver through the coldest day of the year so far, now is the perfect time to start planning your winter escape. It’s cold, windy and wet outside; black winter coats and stuffy red noses as far as the eye can see. Even though hot chocolate, homemade soup and any kind of comfort food are the perfect way to stay warm, winter can take a lot out of you. Now, imagine the warm sun on your skin and the relaxing sound of the waves in your ear while you’re wiggling your toes in the sand. The only umbrellas you will have to deal with will be stuck in a cocktail glass or a pile of sand next to your deck chair. A winter vacation is the perfect way to forget all about gloves, scarves and anything fleece.
Winter can be a depressing and difficult time. There is neither a lot of daylight nor sunshine, which can affect our mood and ultimately everything we do. Going to a warm and sunny place in winter might just be what the doctor ordered. It can help you to recharge your batteries and give your body a much needed boost of Vitamin D and serotonin. These will benefit your immune system, give you energy and help you stay alert and motivated until it’s officially spring.
In preparation for your winter escape, we have put together some great pieces to take away with you.
