Need another vacation? Why not try a staycation?

A staycation is a vacation that you spend at home, and if you plan it correctly it can be just as good as a holiday anywhere else.

First things first:

  1. Set up your space in advance. Make sure your home is setup for maximum relaxation. Don’t leave duties or chores for your staycation.
  2. No social media, no news alerts, no emails. Staying at home you never really get to shut off from your normal busy life, so make sure to intentionally shut off and be on vacation.

Here are some itinerary ideas for your staycation to make it the best vacation ever:

Go camping in your backyard.

Setup your tent (or maybe just make a bed and sleep under the stars) in your backyard.

Holiday drinks

Part of a holiday is the refreshing cocktails or fruit punches. Make up a daily pitcher with fruit punch, pieces of fruit and ice or spice it up with a little bit of vodka.

Catch-up on some sleep

Treat yourself and buy some luxury pillows, take a long hot bath with some essential oils, put on a sleep mask and take an extra-long quilt-less nap.

Create your own resort experience

Turn your patio or garden into a small resort oasis, setup a comfortable couch or lounge chairs, hang some fairy lights or lamps, put some holiday music on, mix you favourite holiday cocktail and relax all day long in your small oasis

Day Trips

Explore a little bit further. If you are feeling a bit itchy and want to get out of your town, why not plan a day trip to a neighbouring town?

Treat yourself to a spa day

Spoil yourself with a day at the spa and dedicate yourself to a day of ultimate mind and body relaxation.

Visit a local museum or gallery.

Yes, you might have seen it before, but we bet it has been a couple of years ago… You might even learn a couple of new things.
