Summer may be the star of the show when it comes to vacations, but you don’t need two weeks off, thousands of dollars, or a passport to get away! Why not redefine what ‘vacation’ means and enjoy some much-deserved family time? In fact, you only need a little time and a bit of imagination to take yourself on a mini-vacation.
The 3-day getaway
If there are no long weekends ahead, you can make your own by taking one day off on either side of a weekend to create your own three-day break. Stay close to home to make the most of the time, so consider booking a room within an hour or two of home. This will give you a break from the ordinary without taking up too much of your time with travel.
The mid-week treat
Have you ever felt done with a week only to realize it’s just Wednesday? If you need to break up the work week, and step away from the stress for a bit, why not book a room with a view for Wednesday afternoon and take a half day of? No making dinner, no running errands, no making the bed – just some much needed downtime.
The treat-yourself night away
Having dinner at a nice restaurant is always fun, but why not extend it and make it an all-night affair? Rent a room with some amenities and really give yourself a treat. You can have a nice meal, go for a swim, soak in a hot tub, or relax by the fire. Even just a night of indulgence can recharge and reinvigorate you.
As you can see, you can get a break from the stress of life even if you don’t have the time or resources for a traditional vacation. So the next time you find yourself daydreaming about hitting the road or booking a cruise, consider one of these mini-vacations instead – you’ll be glad you did.
