The holidays are near and it’s time to plan that trip you’ve been dreaming of!

Chilling by the pool, drinking cold mojitos, napping in a comfy bed, or some quiet time in nature – we’ve got the perfect guide to help you plan for the most relaxing holiday ever!

1.   Bye-Bye Work

Leave your work behind at home on your trip. This means disengaging (un-plugging) from ALL the work gadgets, checking emails, or even reading material that has to do with work.

When the plane takes off, so do you!

2.   Feel-Good Books

Catch up on your reading by the beach or in your hotel’s gorgeous patio. Bring some feel good books; romance, thrillers, biographies – whatever floats your boat!

You’ll be spending your time productively and you’ll enjoy the wonders of reading in a scenic serene place.

3.   No More Calorie Counting

You’ve been working out all year, eating healthy and budgeting calories – no more! For the one week you’re away from the grueling grind of life and work, cut yourself some slack and enjoy your favorite meal or two; and drink till you’re full!

Besides, you can’t miss the local delicacies!

4.   Be in the Now

Wherever you are, take some time to appreciate your new surroundings and environment. Enjoy the walks in the streets or leisurely strolls through local markets. Visit museums, art galleries, botanica gardens, and other heritage sites of your destination.

But don’t pressure yourself to see everything, you’re there to relax, so just add what you know you’ll enjoy!

5.   For the Kids

If you’re traveling with kids, chances are that they’re looking to have fun while you’re looking to relax.

Enroll the kids in the hotel day-care while you go to your spa appointment. Or, book them in for arts and crafts while you go do you and want some time alone.

6.   Exercising

Check out some yoga and meditation classes that your hotel offers – or find some nearby! You’ll be keeping yourself fit and rejuvenating your mind.

A happier and more relaxed you!

7.   Limit Technology

Keeping up to date with social media, news and buzzing group chats can get overwhelming. Take a break from technology, limit use to only photography.

Your aim is to unwind and take a break, so limit your screen time for a little while!

Hope you enjoy your next getaway and think about these relaxation tips to get full value out of your trip.
