New Year resolutions!

We all have New Year resolutions that we are determined to stick to. Wanting to lose weight, get fitter, quit smoking, manage money and stress levels better… these are all everyday examples. For many, travelling abroad and visiting new destinations is also just as important.

The Flexicover Team have put together some great tips for combining your resolve for change and desire to travel to make 2012 your year!

Lose weight & get fitter

Whether you want to lose weight, get fitter or simply want a healthier lifestyle, what better way to do it than combining these aims with a holiday? Perhaps you would care to stay in a luxury retreat with gorgeous beach surroundings and an exercise program tailored for you at the same time, with plenty of relaxation moments incorporated too. There are some fantastic retreats and programs all over the world for you to check out!
Choose Spain, Ibiza, Kerela (India) or Thailand; come back feeling rejuvenated and spread the feel-good factor around.

Spend more time with family & friends

A holiday is an ideal way to catch up with family and friends and to spend some quality time with them. Be it an action-packed adventure-fuelled holiday including scuba diving, hiking or tennis or just relaxing on the beach in a sunny destination, spend it with your loved ones in 2012. Share in the fun times and take pictures to capture all those happy moments!

Manage stress and enjoy life more

Working too long and too hard? Struggling to get the right balance between work and rest? Managing stress can be tricky so treat yourself to a holiday and recuperate! Consider a 2 week break or simply a long weekend, book the time off, switch off the smartphone, relax and enjoy a well-deserved break. Life is for living… do just that!

Visit a new destination

If you are bored with going to the same destination year after year or taking the same type of holiday, consider changing your style. Next year will be the year for somewhere new – make it where you’ve dreamt of going with your loved one for so long. The world is your oyster!

Save money

Saving money is often a New Year’s resolution but don’t feel that you can’t have a holiday too! Trips at home or abroad need not always be out of reach. There are some fantastic deals to be found, especially if you book early and can avoid peak times. Surf online for the best deals; you may be pleasantly surprised.

More ‘me’ time

We all need some more ‘me’ time. Whether you travel alone or with family and friends, put yourself first on that holiday. It could be swimming in the warm waters of the Caribbean, exploring a European city, skiing in the Alps or practicing yoga in an ashram – this is your time, enjoy it!
