For those of us who are still in the house bored and some days overwhelmed and some days happy, we need to do things to break out of the pandemic routines we've created. Even if you're not ready to go on an actual vacation, you can have a staycation right at home! It's important to treat your staycation like you were on vacation; here's a few tips on how to get the most out of your staycation!
Tips to Make the Most Out of Your Staycation
- Make a Staycation Itinerary - Just like you would do for an actual vacation, make an itinerary for your staycation. This gives you the time to think about what you and your family would like to do and plan out your days to get the most out of them.
- Completely unplug - As everyone moved to work from home, the line between work life and home life became blurred. A staycation is the perfect opportunity to disconnect and focus on family time. Give yourself the chance to reset - it's good for your mental, physical, and overall health.
- Base your staycation on a future vacation you want to take - With online virtual experiences, you can get a sense of a destination before going. It's a great first step for research.
- Combine virtual experiences with local ones - Now a staycation doesn't have to solely focus on screens, even though virtual experiences have definitely kicked it up a notch, like cooking classes, arts and crafts classes, etc. delivered right to your door! Take this time to discover or rediscover your favorite local spots. Hike a new trail, take a nature walk to a picnic, visit an outdoor flea market, whatever your town or neighboring towns has to offer, take advantage of it! It's a great way to get out into the world while being comfortingly close to home.
Stay Comfy on Your StaycationAnother added bonus of a staycation? You can dress as comfortably as you want! Throw on your Guardian Leggings or Mesh Out Capris with a T-shirt and nursing sports bra and you're ready to spend quality time with your family! Running out to a local spot? Grab comfy sneakers and a light jacket - we love a light wash denim jacket - and you're ready to go!
