Contents

Are holidays worth it? This might seem like a strange question to pose as many of you prepare for those short spells of solace you have toiled, scrimped and saved for over the last year. But are they really fun? Do they do us good? Pack some psychology in your suitcase and you can find some surprising answers. Turn to p.574 to find out more, including the reason why my breaks since first reading Christian Jarrett's article tend to have involved me thrusting ice-creams at my kids, imploring them, 'Eat it! Eat the ice-cream!'.

Elsewhere, don't miss a 'One on one' with Julie Stokes, and Jim Horne in 'Looking back', with probably the goriest article ever to feature in The Psychologist. This section, dealing with the history of psychology and the psychology of history, has been an important part of the publication since 2008, and there are some great articles collected at www.bps.org.uk/lookback. But as with all corners of The Psychologist, we need your help to ensure it continues. Do get in touch with your ideas.

Enjoy your holidays, and take us with you.

Dr Jon Sutton
