It’s easy to make excuses for not using your vacation time. There’s always too much work to do, not enough money to plan a trip, or something more important going on.
However, it’s important for your mental health and well-being to give yourself a little break every now and then.
Instead of making excuses, take action. Do what you can do! If you can’t afford to take an extended vacation, plan a weekend trip.
It’s important to get out of dodge every once and awhile. But taking week-long vacations isn’t always realistic. Instead, see what’s available in your backyard!
Make a list of places within driving distance that you’d like to visit, and make a weekend of it. That way, you can see some new sights without using up all of your precious vacation time.
Here are some ideas:
Go on a camping trip Find some hiking trails Explore a nearby city Check out a big event Rent a beach house Go on a roadtrip
Today, challenge yourself to plan a weekend trip for the near future. Figure out where you want to go, what you want to do there, and who you want to go with (if you want to bring anyone along). What’s accessible to you?
There are SO many good reasons to plan a weekend trip. Forcing yourself to get out of town for a few days will allow you to relax, get some fresh perspective, meet new people, see new sights, and so much more. And when you come back, you’ll be refreshed and ready to take on the week.
