Top Spa’s For a Relaxing Work Free Break
Sometimes the idea of doing nothing seems ever so appealing. No meetings, no emails, no morning alarm, no busy commute and no deadlines. Sounds heavenly doesn’t it? Technology makes it harder for us to ever really ‘switch off’, instead we find ourselves constantly wired, with very little time to de-stress. It can also affect our sleeping patterns, scrolling through your social media pages right before you head to bed, or even worse whilst you’re in bed, can have a negative impact on our ability to get a good night’s sleep.
Clear your diary, take a couple of days off and grab your bestie for a weekend at the spa! Or why not make a little holiday out of it? We’ve rounded up some of the best spa’s around the globe that guarantee relaxation, rejuvenation and a trip you and your BFF won’t forget! You deserve it after all…
