More households are counting their pennies to avoid going further into debt. At the same time working each and every day is beginning to take a toll on their body. Instead of opting for an all inclusive trip or traveling by plane, train or automobile people are staying at home.
The choice to engage in a staycation sounds great not to mention you’re able to save your money, but it can quickly turn into a chore. As you’re sitting around the house you begin to notice the chips of paint on the siding, the marks on the baseboards and the built up dust on the ceiling fans. Little by little you begin to take on more tasks, now your staycation has become a workcation.
Before you decide to schedule a staycation you want to budget for your week. Just as you would go out to restaurants, dance, and sit by the pool side on a regular vacation, you want to do as much as possible to emulate while at home.
Make sure to announce to your friends and family you won’t be accessible.
There are ways to avoid traveling down that dark, lonely road of a workcation.
1. Make a concerted effort not to stay indoors unless you’re lounging.
2. Engage in outdoor activity and enjoy the weather even if means sitting at the beach, park or riding the bike trails.
3. Go out to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner so that someone is waiting on you.
In addition to the tips mentioned you can take the time to plan a family game night, bowling, rent a movie, skate or any free activity at home. It’s also not a crime to lie in bed and watch the sun beam through the window. Sometimes a staycation is all one needs to rejuvenate and ignite that flame.
