This year many of us will do a staycation, holidaying at home, rather than go on a holiday far away. Regardless of if we stay put or travel, we should all put rest and relaxation on top of our list of things to do.
MAKING YOUR STAYCATION A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER
If you decide to holiday at home this year there is no need to make this any less of joyful and relaxing time. Read our top tips for how to make sure you make the most of your staycation!
Plan Your Activities
Make sure to schedule at least a couple of activities that you want to do during your staycation, so that you don’t spend too much time lying on the couch.
This is a great time to finally meet that friend you haven’t seen in ages, to try that restaurant that opened months ago or to simply being a tourist in your own city.
Make time for all those things that you always wanted to do but that somehow lost importance on your priorities list!
Recharge Your Batteries
Is there a better time to recover from your sleep deprivation than during a holiday at home?
Think about it: no jetlag to overcome, no new hotel beds and pillows to get used to and no early morning wake up calls to head to the beach before the crowd arrives.
Staycation are the perfect opportunity to re-set a healthy sleep routine or even start a new one. Create a bedtime routine that relaxes you, switch off your electrical devices at least one hour before sleep and try to go to bed at the same time every night. These simple tricks not only will allow you to better unwind and fully make the most out of your holiday, but they will also improve the quality of your everyday life (even when you'll be back at the office!).
Staycations can save you a lot of money if you consider that you won’t buy any transportation tickets and you won’t need to book accommodation if you decide to spend your holiday in the comfort of your own home.
So why not treat yourself with something out of the ordinary? It can be a special meal at a nice restaurant, a soothing SPA treatment, or even gift - from you to you - that has been on your wish list since forever.
Obviously don't use the staycation as an excuse to blow all your savings, but rather think of it as an opportunity to reward yourself with something special. You deserve it!
Don’t Be on Your Own
Staycations are a good opportunity to recharge your batteries from your daily routine: crowded public transportation, busy offices and chatty colleagues can be overwhelming at times, and doing a staycation might intrigue you into isolating yourself for 7 days in a row.
Although total isolation (especially these days!) might be tempting, try not to spend your entire holiday on your own.
With caution, make (socially distanced) plans with friends who are also spending their holidays in town, spend time with your family and make this staycation a holiday to remember!
Say No To Work & Yes To Digital Detox
Not travelling abroad may cause you to check on your work email too often or even put a few hours of work in at the end or beginning of the day. Although it can be hard to take your head off completely while staying at home, keep in mind that these days are your vacation and you deserve to relax. If you want to get back to the office fresher and more motivated than ever, enjoy your time off.
Scared of not being able to disconnect completely? Remember to activate an automatic Out-Of-Office message in your email and make clear to your colleagues and boss that during this time you will not be available except for emergencies.
In addition, try to use the staycation as a moment to detox yourself from your laptop and smartphone and to reduce your screen-time. Instead, try reading a book, playing sports or starting a new hobby.
