Ever wondered why you get a headache or become mysteriously ‘off colour’ when you go on holiday? Not so long ago I treated myself to a short break with a swimming pool, sauna, gym and yoga classes and was so looking forward to relaxing and regenerating my batteries. I had hardly been in the hotel room more than an hour or two when I developed a headache and felt really ‘off’ and ‘liverish’. I put it down to a reaction to having been stressed and tense for so long previous to that. Now I’m not so sure.
Ever since making some curtains for a hotel and a nursing home I have known that fire safety regulations dictate that fabrics used for making curtains and the covering of furniture such as sofas and chairs be coated with flame retardant chemicals to reduce the risk of fire. I imagine it’s the same for carpets. Now I have experienced first hand just what this means in terms of human health and well-being.
I shall give where I next go on holiday some very careful consideration. Camping anyone?
