You Need a Staycation

Why taking a staycation may be as valuable as taking a vacation.

Ahhh, how amazing is it to get away on a sandy beach for a vacation? That's a rhetorical question because vacations on sandy white beaches are always a fantastic way to relieve stress, get away with your sweetheart, or just have some private time in paradise for yourself. But, what if your schedule doesn't allow you to travel far at all and you have to stay home? Take a staycation.


We know, a staycation doesn't sound half as amazing as taking a trip to a faraway place with palm trees, but it is equally as beneficial and can reintroduce you to your surroundings in new ways that you didn't think were possible. For example, besides taking off a few days from the job that may have you stressed out and growing more gray hairs than you'd like, a staycation allows you time to chill out with your lover, hang out with your friends, and have a personal pampering day in the spa that includes a full body massage and a mani/pedi. You have time to do whatever it is that your heart desires, so before you get down about staying home, turn that frown upside down and make your staycation worth it.
