Kuoni conducts holiday experiment
|Six people have been chosen to take part in an innovative Kuoni project to gauge how being away from it all affects our wellbeing.
The Holiday Health Experiment will see each person sent on very different trips away, undergoing a variety of medical and psychological tests before jetting off, during their stay and upon their return.
Nuffield Health is also involved in the initiative, which aims to find out what type of impact different holiday types have on wellbeing. It is thought the results will be useful for those in travel jobs when it comes to advising holidaymakers in the coming years.
Chris Jones, head of physiology at Nuffield Health, said: "I am looking forward to analysing the data from this unique experiment which will hopefully focus people's minds on the importance of managing everyday stress and worries - perhaps from work - and ensure time is built into their busy lives to improve their wellbeing."
The data will be analysed and compared to see what effects people's normal routines have on their health and mental state.
According to Kuoni, a total of 2,845 people applied to take part in the Holiday Health Experiment.
