28 May How to (REALLY) Enjoy Your Vacation
“How can I NOT enjoy a vacation?”, you may be asking yourself. If you’re one of those folks who’s never had a bad getaway, then count yourself in the minority and congratulations all at the same time. For others, it’s sometimes easier said than done. If you really want to make the most of it though, there are some easy things to keep in mind before you head out.
Balance is often the key to many things in life and your vacation is no different. Trying to jam-pack as many activities into the time you have away may seem sensible because you may never have opportunity to do certain adventures again in the near future, but it’s much easier to make the most of specific outings than trying to do too much in a limited amount of time. Spend just as much time doing relaxing and less strenuous activities as you do the more adventurous ones. When it’s all over, you’ll thank yourself physically and cherish the memory of the activities you did do, more so, because of the extra attention you were able to give them.
If your getaway is one you’re able to actually plan, schedule it according to your personal tastes. If you’re not the adventurous type than don’t book a hotel across the street from the country’s largest thrill rides. This may seem like a no-brainer, but many folks will plan a vacation around certain places simply because they’re known for being vacation destinations. If the bill doesn’t fit your particular tastes, than find a spot that will.
Vacation, no matter how long or short, is meant to be a time that you can get away from the routine and relax, worry free. Make sure that no matter what your personal enjoyments are, that you’re planning with a stress free mentality and your destinations and activities reflect that. Give yourself a little extra time, both before and after, the “start/end” of your time away to ease in and out of the daily grind as well. It might mean the difference between the vacation of your life and the vacation from hell.
