Who said you had to go away to have a nice vacation? Sometimes, the best vacations are the ones that can happen right at home. Don't believe me? Well, try it! I am going to give you some tips on having one of the best vacations of your life, and it can happen right at home.
1. PACK A BAG AND LEAVE!
Some people have it mixed up. They think a staycation consists of you staying in the house. WRONG! You CAN leave. Find yourself a nice hotel or bed and breakfast and enjoy being out of your house. There are a lot of sites where you can find a deal on local hotels. If not, build a tent outside in your backyard and camp out! Either way, you'll have a sense of serenity when your atmosphere has officially changed. You'll be surprised at the amenities you'll have, it's just like being further away.
2. Be Adventurous!
One of the biggest problems we have is not being adventurous enough. There are so many different things and places to go in your state, and because of your busy schedule, you never go! Well, this is the time to get out there and go. You can look up just about any place to visit. Apps like Viator and WingIt can help you find the best spots to enjoy during your staycation. The greatest part about these apps is that they navigate based on your location. I bet there are some places you never knew existed in your neck of the woods. Some may even be free. So now that you finally have time make the best of it and get out and explore.
Yes, this may be self-explanatory, but it's not followed enough. Yes..RELAX! Just because you haven't left, doesn't mean you're not supposed to enjoy this. Enjoy it!! You deserve it, and your body does too.
After doing all of these steps, I promise your body will feel just as relaxed as I would if you were further away. A staycation is just as relaxing, and can be cheaper! Sometimes a change of scenery with new places to see can go a long way, but it can go either further when your not too far from home.
