Have you planned your summer vacation yet? There’s a lot of pressure to have an amazing week off from work but that often involves packing up, facing the crowds at airports and try to find a hotel that is actually comfortable that will cost a fortune. Is there a better way to have a relaxing vacation? There is and it’s called a staycation. This is where you actually stay home for the duration of your time off. To make a staycation work you have to let your job know that you’re taking off and that means no phone calls or emails. They don’t have to know you’re staying home! Here are some great staycation ideas:
Take a Class
You can take a class on your staycation. What kind of class is totally up to you. You’re not earning a degree but instead just having fun for a night. With a little research, you could probably find all kinds of fun classes like how to make pasta or wine tasting. Maybe you’ll sign up for that beginner yoga class you’ve always been wanting to do. If it leads to more classes great.
Read a Book
When was the last time you read a good book? For your staycation grab the book, you’ve always been wanting to read and then go find your own reading nook. It could be at a coffeehouse, under a tree in a park or in a backyard hammock. An hour a day will have that book finished by the end of the week. If it’s really good, then you might devote the whole day to reading. Nothing wrong with that!
Host a Potluck Barbecue
One of the things you often miss on vacation are your friends and family. On your staycation, you can invite them over for a potluck barbecue. Potluck means everyone brings a dish and that keeps you out of the kitchen. Just make sure there’s plenty of sangria.
Go to a Ballgame
Summer and baseball go together like fireworks on the Fourth of July. On your staycation, why not take in a ballgame? Of course, it doesn’t have to be a major league baseball game. You could probably find a minor league team in the area or even a Little League team that are playing their hearts out. Pick a side and have fun.
Just because you’re staying home on your staycation doesn’t mean you should be working around the house. In fact, let the laundry go for a week. If you’re tempted to accomplish some of those tasks you’ve been putting off for a while, then turn those jobs over to someone else. For instance, Junk King Miami is a great company to call on to haul away all your unwanted furniture, appliances and other household clutter. They’ll send over two men and a big truck that will take care of that task in no time at all. Enjoy your staycation by starting with a junk removal session from Junk King Miami.
