Holidays 'can help with life balance'

Article content

22 October 2009

The importance of taking a holiday in order to relax has been highlighted by a cruise line.

Princess Cruises conducted a study into the amount of balance people in the US believe they have in their lives, taking into account factors such as health and stress.

Nearly three-quarters of respondents believe they do not have balance, with 19 per cent saying they rarely spend time doing something for themselves.

Furthermore, one-in-four people stated that they do not plan to take their full allowance of holidays, although 64 per cent who have attained life balance say they took a break in the last year.

Commenting on the findings, founder of the Stress Institute Dr Kathleen Hall remarked: "It's … important to allow yourself time to get away and disconnect from it all so that you can return to your everyday life rejuvenated and ready to deal with challenges head on."

Princess Cruises ship Star Princess recently arrived in Auckland, marking the start of the season in New Zealand.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19421356-ADNFCR
