Your holiday is just around the corner, and you are already picturing yourself
on the beach, cocktail in one hand, phone in the other for a perfect selfie.
Suddenly, the sad thought of you gaining weight pulls you back to reality,
Torn between cancelling the holiday and promising yourself not to eat.
We at Constance Hotels and Resorts believe that a holiday is a great opportunity to keep fit and stay in shape.
Research have shown that a little exercise daily makes you more happy and healthy.
The following activities can easily acquire your daily amount of required exercise:
Yoga classes, swimming, diving, massages, cycling, gym sessions, tennis, long walk or jogging on the beach.
With the sand moving beneath your feet, it engages your ankles, arches and calves, making them stronger.
It is also known that calories burn even quicker when running on sand than any other surface
as you sink into the loose sand thus, spending more time to get out of it.
However, it is advisable to stick to running on firm, wet sand close to the shoreline!
Exercising is important as it helps to enjoy the tasty dishes prepared by our chefs rather than
binge, without really relishing the flavours.
“For me, exercise is important for a healthy body and mind, plus it boosts my energy level and encourages me
to make healthier choices when standing in front of those delicious Constance buffets!” – Rosanna Davison

Less than a heliotherapy, more like a few hours under the warm sun is enough to give your skin a radiant glow.
Among many other benefits, sunlight also helps to ward off a condition called seasonal affective disorder (SAD),
a form of depression. Which is why very often you feel more happy and content after a holiday or simply few hours under the sun.
A healthy sunbathing, though, requires sunglasses and sunscreen!
A holiday is also a time to renew yourself whereby you learn to breathe and relax,
spend time with your loved ones or simply set out on a new objective.
All in all, you achieve a healthy balance and return home healthier and refreshed.
