Everyone needs to take a break from their everyday life, but we don't always have the time. The worst thing you can do while at work is scroll through instagram and see your friends or other people you follow travelling while being stuck at work. Staycations are a great way for you to recharge and explore while staying close to home. Staycations are great because you don't have to go far and you can explore your own city. Also, you don't have to spend much money and time travelling to a far away place.
Here are some ways you can have a great staycation.
Book a hotel
A staycation isn't complete without checking into a hotel. It doesn't need to be very fancy but one with a Jacuzzi tub wouldn't hurt. Make sure to stay in a good area of town where you can easily get to attractions in the city. Wear the hotel robe and take advantage of the amenities. It's a great way to unwind and relax.
My favourite part of staycations is being able to relax in the hotel room without feeling rushed to go out and explore since I'm not in a new city.
Visit some popular sights
Playing tourist in your own town is a lot of fun. You can finally check out the places you've been dying to visit or the new hotspots that everyone is talking about. The best thing to do is explore your city on instagram, you are bound to find really cool things.
I like to visit trendy cafes or go to the movies on my staycation. Although these are things I can do with other people, doing it alone is a lot more fun.
Go to a restaurant you've always wanted to try
Every city has the 'It' spots. Don't be afraid to book a table for one and indulge in your favourite eats. Food is often one of the best cures for stress! Make sure to pick a place depending on your budget, you don't need to overspend to enjoy your staycation. Do go out to a nice bar or lounge for some drinks or buy yourself a nice bottle for your hotel room.
Normally, I indulge at a nice restaurant and get a few drinks. I wouldn't be able to finish a bottle on my own.
Make sure to pamper yourself. Get your hair or nails done. Book a spa treatment or soak in a tub with one of those cool bath bombs. Get the latest magazine or novel and relax in the rub. My favourite thing to do is to get tea light candles, a bath bomb and some rose pedals. There is nothing better than making yourself feel special if you are alone.
