Holiday Inn Southend

A trip on this occasion not for business but personal reasons led us to a newish Holiday Inn Southend just in view of the airport. From the outside the building looks stylish and smart. It's got a hint of cruise liner and art deco styling about it. I loved the glass wrap around and actually shows what can be done with a modern build and it doesn't have to be boring box shape hotel. The hotel as I said is just by the airport. "London Southend" isn't one of the UK biggest airport's. It mostly serves domestic travel, and the one time that I've flown out of it I got from the car park to the gate in something like…

4 simple ways to feel better after burning out

Life can get a little difficult at times. Even for someone like me who's fairly confident and outgoing, behind the closed doors of home we all reach difficulties at some point. Burnout is a real thing, and it’s something that we should really all avoid if we’re to lead the busy lives that we do. It doesn’t matter what the situation is, too much work can ruin us mentally and physically.  Have you ever been burnt out due to work or something similarly straining? You probably have done.
