Recharge your mind

by: Anne O'Connell (10 January 2018)

Do you remember the days when, no sooner had Father Christmas scooted back up the chimney, television advertisements from package holiday companies did their best to elbow out those for interminable sofa sales? It seems natural that we should turn our minds to sun and sand while the nights remain long and the days chilly at best.

It's not as simple as that though, is it? Finances are pinched after the excess of Christmas, and work and family commitments may prevent you getting away from it all. But even if you can't start planning for an actual holiday, there's nothing to stop you from sending your mind away on an odyssey.

As well as looking at travel guides and blogs, I like to read fiction set in a place I have been to or want to visit – it helps to get under its surface and fire my imagination. To take a step further, try listening to an audio guide. As well as learning a little history, you may get to hear the everyday sounds of the place – church bells, market traders, local greetings.

So whether you're stuck at home and reading to escape, or in full-scale planning mode for a journey away from a long winter, get your head there now!
