Most of us would definitely love to take a vacation every six months. Yet, having frequent trips won’t always be feasible, especially if you’re still starting out on your career path or saving up for an apartment space that you’ve always wanted. Fortunately, it’s still possible to have a relaxing vacation without spending too much and just staying at home. Here, we’ve listed down some of the easy ways on how you can make your long-awaited staycation rival even that of the fanciest of holiday getaways.
- Ditch Your Daily Routine
For you to truly enjoy your staycation, you must first commit to ditching your normal routine. One way of doing it is making your home feel like a first-class hotel by treating yourself to a really relaxing shower or having a delicious breakfast in bed. If you’re okay with splurging a little, consider getting your space professionally cleaned to give it an extra luxurious touch prior to your staycation.
- Set Your Work Aside
There’s absolutely no point in having a staycation if you’ll only be reviewing your emails most of the time. To resist the urge to check on your emails, shut down your laptop and place it somewhere you won’t be able to see. Also, make sure that you give all the necessary information and instructions to your colleagues beforehand so they won’t end up calling you every now and then just to ask questions about the project that you’re currently working on.
- Cross Out Items on Your Bucket List
One of the best ways to start planning what you’d want to do during your staycation is to take on the things you want to experience in your own area in Singapore. The lovely botanical gardens that you saw on Instagram, the museum that you’ve always wanted to visit, and the new thrift shop across the town – add all of it to your local bucket list and do them one after another.
- Enjoy Some Great Meals
Enjoying good food is one of the best ways to make the most out of your staycation. So call on a friend and enjoy some pastry and coffee in a cute café instead of simply eating in your house. Aside from that, you can also treat yourself to a take-out, a decadent dessert or a bottle of your favourite wine. Sure, you can still cook at home but make sure that you indulge in some special meals.
While a staycation seems like a boring option compared to travelling to other places, doing the aforementioned tips will surely help in making your staycation more relaxing and worthwhile.
