Trying desperately not to pick on Lastminute.com this week, but it is worth mentioning an email that arrived yesterday to announce the online travel agent's tie-in with celebrity psychologist Honey Langcaster-James.
Apparently consumers should bolster their five-a-day fruit and veg intake with five holidays and short breaks each year!
Lastminute.com's travel director, John Bevan, says:
"Taking around five holidays and short breaks each year will help you stay healthy. Regular breaks from work will focus your mind and give you time to recharge your batteries, as well as ensuring you make the most of your leisure time.”Erm, well, of course.
Langcaster-James adds her own insight:
“Nipping off for a long weekend or even an overnight stay every couple of months will give you something to look forward to when the stresses of life and work get you down.How touching to know our welfare is never far from the minds of the industry.
"Arranging a few short breaks over the year, rather than just one long holiday, may well be beneficial for all the members of your family."
