This Spring Break, Will You Stay or Will You Go?
To vacation or to staycation, that is the question?
It is certainly fun to go to a land far away on vacation, but there are costs associated with doing that. Sometimes the thought of staying home isn't as exciting, but you'll be saving some money, not working and still deserve to kick your feet up and have fun!
No matter which you choose, everyone needs a little R & R. Life can be stressful and busy and go-go-go, so we all need to stop and take pause.
Our spring break starts in just a few days. We're excited to have days of doing whatever we want. No schedule, no routine... just sleeping in, riding bikes, doing hikes, some skiing, some play-dates, and some appointments (dentist, chiro). We'll head to the cabin for a bit of 'vacation' and spend some days at home.
Here are a few tips to help with your vacation or staycation!
- Travelling leaves you seeing and doing everything, but the transition from beach to dinner can be a little tricky on your tresses. One of the things I find the handiest to have at our 'showerless' cabin, is some Batiste Dry Shampoo in Tropical, to help clean up any oiliness. It has become essential on those days where you maybe need to wash your hair, but you'll still need to eke out another day in the woods!
- Where to go on vacation? The choices are endless. Will it be a cruise in the Bahamas or a trip to Disneyland? Any vacation offers a change of scenery and broadening your horizons is good for the soul. Be sure to read up on your adventure ahead of time, so you will know what you want to see and do while you are there. Look for fellow traveller reviews online to gain great insight on the must-dos.
- If you venture somewhere warm (and I hope you do), you might need to scare aware all the traces of winter, with some hair removal care. Nair Moroccan Argan Oil Ultimate Roll-on Body Wax leaves your skin smooth, soft and hair-free for up to four weeks. No only is it gentle and effective, but it smells yummy!
- For starters, you won't be working... and while you also won't be jet-setting (besides, jet-lag is overrated), you won't need to deal with the stresses of the travel or the expenses. Staying home doesn't have to mean sacrificing fun, or just sitting around! Make the week about doing all the things you CAN'T do while working, like catching up on sleep. Don't spend your Spring Break doing chores.
- Since you already have a good lay of the land, that means there will not be any getting lost in unfamiliar territory! But that doesn't mean the exploring needs to stop. Look around your neighbourhood... what's new? Visit a nearby park for a picnic, check out a museum, or try a new restaurant. You might be surprised the adventure hiding in your very own backyard.
- Take the week to learn a new skill. Giving ourselves the chance to learn something new, is usually put off for times when we'll be less busy/have more money/ etc... so use this time as an opportunity to hone your skills! Try a painting or a cooking class, or even a new sport. With the kids off school for the week, give them the chance to pursue a hobby with an art class of their own to attend.
We're hoping for some nice weather on our week off in the very least. Fun will always be had, as long as we're all together.
