Feeling a little blue? Today might be more than your regular case of the Monday blues as it’s “Blue Monday”, the gloomiest day of the year was created in 2005, although when at Center Parcs there’s nothing to feel blue about when you’re nestled in the forest.
With the Christmas comedown in full swing and if like us, you’ve spent the Christmas holidays watching films and eating way too many Quality Street (surely that’s not just us?), it’s time to go back to work and start working on those deadlines while looking forward to your next break…
If you enjoyed spending time with your family over the festive period, why let it stop there? Get together again throughout the year. With five different locations across the UK, there’s one village you can get together at halfway so you don’t have to make an extra-long journey.
Try something new
With over 200 indoor and outdoor activities there’ll be something you’ve never tried before so what are you waiting for? From Quad Biking and a Segway Experience to an Indoor Climbing Adventure and Caving or for the creative try your hand at Pottery Painting and Cupcake Decorating Workshops, something got your attention? You can have a look at our activities here.
Indulge in fine food
Getting around a dinner table together with friends and family for conversation and laughter is a big part of your break, and may help get over those ‘Blue Monday’ blues. If you want a lazy, long breakfast or delicious dinners there’s something for everyone, from Italian and Indian cuisine to American and gastropub.
Just spend time together
Whether you’re eating, exploring, relaxing or taking part in activities, beating those January blues has never been easier when you spend time together. And with a mixture of break durations over weekends or the midweek, there’s plenty of opportunities to get together all year round. Three nights could be the perfect way to spend quality time together and what better way than after the Christmas rush, Easter or the summer holidays.
Meetings in the forest
With work routines back in full swing after the Christmas holidays, avoid the Monday blues and take your working day into the forest. We offer a unique alternative to your everyday meetings by hosting them in our tranquil forest locations. With the outdoors known to reduce stress, there’s no better reason to escape to the forest and soak in nature.
In a bid to dispel the ‘Blue Monday’ myth, we’ve invited clients, agents and local businesses to join us at Sherwood Forest on Monday 21 January for ‘Space to Breathe’. The one-day event features sessions from experts, exploring the role exercise plays in mental and physical wellbeing, while also sharing simple steps for improving daily self-care.
Book your break to get together again and conquer those January blues with something to look forward to.
