How to de-stress quickly on holiday

5th June 2016

We all look forward to going on holiday and getting away from the stress of everyday life but the reality is that we often take all our worries away with us, which get in the way of a truly relaxing holiday. We have put together our top tips for unwinding so you really do have a relaxing break.

Book a relaxing massage in the Spa

Research has shown that massage can help lower heart rate and blood pressure whilst relaxing the muscles leading to the production of endorphins, the body’s natural ‘feel good’ chemical.

Choose from one of our specifically designed massage therapies designed to relieve stress:

  • Aromatic Massage
  • Mediterranean Light
  • Spiced Oriental

Wake up early and explore the idyllic countryside

Get up early and enjoy a beautiful walk around Grasmere. Choose from the many stunning local walks. We personally recommend Helm Crag, Loughrigg or Alcock Tarn for the best views. Not only will you benefit from the peace and tranquillity early in the morning you will be able to shift your mind-set to calm relaxation.

Curl up with a good book or magazine

Don’t forget to bring a good read with you on your break to The Daffodil. Lose all sense of time in our award winning Spa whilst laying by the pool with a good holiday read or make the most of the sun out on our lake-view terrace, perhaps with a glass of Pimms! We have a collection of books available for you to enjoy in our lounge.
