The elusive art of chillaxing


MORE than half of holidaying Spaniards need a fortnight to wind down completely.
Disconnecting is hardest for young professionals aged between 25 and 34, found a recent survey. A total of 46 per cent take between a week and a fortnight to relax and 11 per cent require even longer to shrug off workplace worries. A further 38 per cent find it impossible to entirely forget about work while on holiday, compared with 36.3 per cent two years ago.
More fortunate are the 43 per cent needing only one day to put routine aside and enjoy the summer break. Women find it harder than men to forget about work – 39 per cent as opposed to 34 per cent – and 63 per cent of both sexes use a mobile to keep up to date with what is going on at work.
Residents from the Canary Islands take the longest to relax with 73 per cent requiring up to two weeks.  At the other end of the scale, 34 per of Valencianos need just one day to put worries behind them, as do 45 per cent of Murcianos.
