|We’ve all been sheltering in place for what feels like a really long time, video conferencing our little hearts out. Well, this Saturday marks the official first day of Summer. While we may not be able to take our traditional summer vacations this year, we can still plan an amazing “staycation” that includes a break from our “new normal” routines.
You could choose a trip theme like Tropical Paradise and order some fabulous seafood and fruity drinks for local carryout or delivery – because no one wants to do dishes on vacation. ???? Set up your own outdoor movie theater with a white sheet and a projector and watch “Castaway” or “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
Pitch a tent and go camping in your own backyard. Or build your own tent “fort-style” in the living room with some sheets, just like you used to when you were a kid. Bring lots of pillows, cozy blankets, sleeping bags, snacks and twinkle lights.
Don’t forget, this is a vacation so stay off your phone and take a break from work all together. After all, studies have found a strong link between vacations and improved productivity, life satisfaction, and mental and physical health.
It may not be what you’re used to, but what is these days? A quarantine staycation may be just what the doctor ordered. Focus on the same aspects of vacation that bring you joy, like spending time with loved ones, trying new things, not worrying about work or the news, and making time for your favorite activities.
I’d love to hear your staycation ideas. I’ll share them in a recap Rise & Shine later this month.
