A Guide to Having the Perfect Staycation

Who doesn't love a glass of rosé fizz

Staycations have been all the rage recently, and it’s easy to see why. If you’re wondering what on earth a staycation is, it’s like a vacation, except you spend most of your time at home, resting, with a few local day trips to explore the city you live in.

It sounds fun, right? And it is! But only if done correctly. A staycation may seem like an easy thing to plan, but the truth is that it can be quite boring if you don’t have at least an idea of what you want to do. Don’t stress; this post is here to help.

Get some wine
To really get you in the mood for your staycation, why not celebrate with a nice glass of Champagne? Champagne is a staple item when it comes to most vacations, so it only makes sense to include it in your staycation as well. Even if you don’t drink alcohol, a glass of non-alcoholic sparkling wine is sure to get you in the mood. Of course, you can choose any wine you like – have a look at Dune Wines for some options – but nothing gives you that relaxed holiday feeling like a glass of bubbly.

Make an itinerary
It may sound a bit over the top to make an itinerary if the whole idea is to stay close to home, but it’s worth it. Otherwise, you may end up never leaving your house, and the entire point of a staycation is to find a balance between rest and adventure. Make a list of all of the places you want to visit and the sights you want to see.

However, every day shouldn’t be jam-packed; you need time to rest as well. Write down some fun things to do at home, like catching up on your favorite series, or having a DIY spa day.

Find balance
As mentioned above, a key part of any staycation is finding a balance between having fun and resting. You may be tempted to squeeze in as many things as possible during your staycation, but you’ll likely go back to work feeling even more exhausted. Try to be home at a decent hour each day, so that you have time to sleep.

In fact, you should use your staycation to catch up on some sleep, since most of us don’t get enough rest. Be sure to implement habits that will help you sleep. Some people say that alcohol can help you sleep better, but you can read more about whether that’s true here.

Get the timing right
If it’s a busy time at work, it’s probably not the ideal time for you to take a staycation, especially if you know you’ll be stressed out the whole time. You should also not take your staycation during a holiday season – all of the places you head to will likely be filled with tourists, which could mean you’ll spend most of your time off standing in a queue.

It’s also not always the best idea to ask for time off if you’ve just started a new job, as it might leave a bad impression. Either way, when you do ask for time off, be sure to follow these tips.
