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.
