When it comes time to take a break and decompress, there are few things more relaxing than enjoying a stress-free staycation. While there is no denying the fun and excitement of travelling someplace new and experiencing the local culture, a new adventure also requires time, energy and money that you may not have. A staycation is the perfect middle ground, giving you a (hopefully) responsibility-free time to relax while also giving your wallet some much-needed time off.
To help you make the most out of your mini-break, we have put together a low-cost guide for the top 5 things to do on a staycation.
Have a spa day at home
There is nothing quite like enjoying a relaxing spa day to kick off any break. Why not start your day off with a relaxing soak in a bubble bath, get out all the body scrubs and lotions in your beauty arsenal and give your skin the glow it deserves. Finish off with that facemask you’ve been waiting to use and a mani-pedi while you binge your favourite series.
Pro tip: A glass of wine would not go amiss during your pampering session.
Classic movie day
Who doesn’t love a classic movie day? Whether you’re addicted to romantic comedies or love a good jump scare and all things nightmare-inducing, a staycation is a perfect time to enjoy all the movies you never have time for. Load up the lounge with cosy blankets, pillows, maybe a few candles and snacks (snacks are crucial!) and kick back and enjoy your homemade movie theatre with no talkers or screaming babies.
Declutter your home
We said what we said. With more and more people embracing minimalism and the art of organising, there is something weirdly enjoyable and soothing about decluttering your home. From organising your kitchen to repacking your overflowing wardrobe, or cleaning out the garage, decluttering can be fun.
Time to unplug
It’s so easy to fall down the black hole of the internet. One moment you’re watching a 30 second TikTok and then suddenly it’s 1 am, and you’re watching a 1-hour documentary on YouTube about unsolved crimes from 40 years ago. Give yourself and your family the gift of no screens for a day. Go for a walk, enjoy a meditation session or a good book. There is life outside of a device.
Eat your heart out
What better way to enjoy a staycation than with a mouth-watering feast? A great way to use your no-screen time is to whip up a delicious meal that you never have time for during the week or dust off that recipe book and bake a few sweet treats just in time for Easter. As a bonus - baking is a great activity to share with kids or your partner.
