Autobiographies, best sellers and sadly the odd ‘management 101’ type book has made its way in my hand luggage to read. I associate reading with relaxing and hands up I don’t make enough time for it in my regular weeks so on holiday I try to remedy that!

Life is fast paced for many – we have 24/7 access to information and endless content we often find it difficult to switch off. An analogy which resonates with me is giving our minds ‘cache’ time (or clearing the cache) and one way I find to do that is reading!

It relaxes my mind and helps me relax so I encourage you to put down the phones, tablets and pick up a book that interests you! You never know it may spark up a great holiday conversation too!
