Planning the Ultimate Holiday Staycation

Are you longing for a holiday escape, but the thought of airports and travel expenses are keeping your bags unpacked? A staycation is the perfect way to relax and unwind, especially if you want to avoid the hassle of airports or a lengthy road trip. Whether you plan to stay at home or take a short trip to a nearby destination, check out our five tips below to make the most of your holiday staycation!

1.      Plan Ahead

A staycation may not require arranging detailed travel plans and flights, but a little preparation can help ensure your staycation is one to remember. Whether you create a detailed itinerary or have a list of potential activities, having a list of things you would like to do will help get each day started on the right foot!

2.      Capture Memories

You don’t want to reach the end of your staycation and realize you forgot to capture memories along the way. Whether you take photos while sightseeing or write in a journal about your travels, be sure to document your adventures!

3.      Unplug & Unwind

The key to any successful vacation is to unplug from technology, especially if that piece of tech is going to have constant reminders and emails from work flooding your inbox. Let your colleagues know that you will be unavailable and try to resist the temptation of checking your social media.

4.      Pamper Yourself

One of the best ways to relax is to treat yourself with a few self-care activities. Whether you enjoy a relaxing bubble bath or book a soothing spa day, you deserve a little pampering!

5.      Make it a Tradition!
