Where To Go on Your January Detox Holiday

Although an exciting time for most, the Christmas period can often leave us feeling physically and emotionally drained and in need of re-energising ourselves. Fortunately, the beginning of a brand new year offers the perfect opportunity for a new healthy lifestyle change, and a detox holiday is an ideal way to get started. A January detox break on one of our luxury spa holidays is certain to make you feel profoundly better, inside and out.

At this time of year, it is hard to get away from a diet that is high in sugar, fat, caffeine and alcohol. Normally your body has a capable detoxification system that enables you to get rid of harmful or unwanted substances naturally, but this type of diet means you will struggle to keep up. Detoxing on holiday is an effective way to recover the body's natural system and also increase energy levels, clear your skin and boost your immune system.

Rejuvenating treatments and the right foods will help rid your body of toxins in a healthy and controlled way, whilst fitness routines and exercise classes will help to improve your energy levels and achieve weight-loss goals. With a carefully considered programme that suits your body and mind-set, a detox holiday can be the first step to improve your health and vitality.

If the normal detox plan is tiresome, then try something different and embark on a healthy holiday to Thailand, India or Italy. Be inspired by some of the best detox holidays to get your New Year off to the right start, perfect for those looking to go on a solo holiday, travelling as a couple or in a group.
