What you need to be focusing on to get the most out of your days away
A reminder on what traveling is really for
Itching to get away from problems such as work stress, commuting hassles, a rocky relationship, or whatever’s bothering you on a daily basis? Maybe it’s the perfect time to relax, unwind, and shoo the stress away.
With a couple of long weekends in the calendar to squeeze in your vacay, here are some recommendations to get you psyched on your next trip.
Take lots of pictures
Find a snap-worthy place such as Casita Ysabel—a nature paradise in Mabini, Batangas. Casita Ysabel has a rustic feel, but boasts of modern amenities providing a comfortable haven to its weary guests.
Do something That you are willing To commit To
List down the things you are willing to do rather than what you think you should do. A well planned vacation can go to waste if not properly executed. If you need a balm to soothe the soul, then a retreat might be a good idea. If you are after an adrenaline rush, then an Amazing Racelike adventure is tops.
Don’t go melancholic on your last vacation Day
You went on vacation to reduce stress—so don’t mope at the prospect of going back to real life. Rather, sit back and relax, and think of the perfect trip you just had. In this way, you’ll be able to keep the good memories out of the whole experience.
stick To your budget
While spending on your travels are now more affordable and accessible thanks to cheap flights, emptying out your savings to pay for your expenses is a big no-no. If you can’t afford to go to a destination, we’re not saying don’t go—but don’t go just yet. Save up for it. Don’t go in debt for it.
Drop everything and go
It’s best to disconnect while away. Avoid checking your laptop, tablet, and if possible, your smartphone, to keep stressors at bay. But do not forget to instruct your loved ones on how to contact you in case of an emergency.
