Mak­ing the most of your weekend get­away

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TRAVEL -

IT’S al­ways good to take a break from work, even if it’s for a weekend. You get to recharge and re­fresh your mind, body and soul.

A good work-life bal­ance can make a lot of dif­fer­ence to the qual­ity of your life.

If you are feel­ing stressed and overwhelmed but can­not seem to find the time for a long va­ca­tion, your so­lu­tion might just be a weekend get­away.

This week, Ted of­fers some tips on how you can make that hap­pen and also make it worth your while! > Just do it. Stop de­bat­ing with yourself over whether you can af­ford the time or the trip. Go on­line and book that flight.

You can al­ways drive off some­where for the weekend but there is some­thing about fly­ing to a des­ti­na­tion that puts your mind in a hol­i­day mood! > Stay close to home. Yes, we did say take a flight some­where but be wise and se­lect a des­ti­na­tion that is in the re­gion.

Three hours of travel time is ideal for a short trip. Keep in mind that you only have the weekend. There’s no fun in spend­ing it in the air­ports! > Keep it sim­ple. Re­mem­ber that your goal is to come back feel­ing re­freshed and recharged.

The last thing you need from this hol­i­day is to come back feel­ing like you need an­other one. So fly to your des­ti­na­tion, be real­is­tic about what you want to do and en­joy the time there. > Pack light. All you need are some comfy clothes and your daily es­sen­tials. The less you take with you, the more time you have to do some­thing dif­fer­ent or to just do noth­ing but re­lax and in­dulge in some R&R! > Be pro­tected. Good travel in­sur­ance is a must for a worry-free hol­i­day. Tune In­sure AirAsia Travel Pro­tec­tion Plan is per­fect as it cov­ers you from the time you leave home un­til you re­turn. > Have fun! You will be back at work soon enough. Stop wor­ry­ing about how ev­ery­one at home is do­ing or the tons of e-mails you will need to at­tend to when you get back. You fi­nally have a weekend to yourself, so savour ev­ery minute of it!

Tune In­sure AirAsia Travel Pro­tec­tion Plan cov­ers ev­ery­thing from trip can­cel­la­tion to lost bag­gage, de­lays and per­sonal ac­ci­dents. So be sure to get pro­tected and leave your wor­ries be­hind be­fore you get on that flight!
