Holidays are good for you!

Today has been designated Blue Monday – officially the most depressing day of the year. Apparently, post Christmas boredom, bad weather and failed resolutions all contribute to this miserable day.

However, today was still the first official day of summer and if you have a summer holiday planned, you will likely be packing your sun cream, so it is something that you can ‘t really avoid. Sun, like so many other things that we enjoy (cakes, chips and sleeping to name just a few) is good for us, but in moderation. The problem is, this is often something we forget when we expose our pasty bodies to those 2 weeks in the sun!
