Your life is busy. Between work or school, social events, and relaxation time it can start to feel like a juggling act. Even the weekends can get booked up with errands and other engagements. With all this craziness, it’s no surprise that more and more women are opting for a staycation to find peace and relaxation. A staycation refers to taking time off, similar to a vacation, but choose to stay home rather than travel elsewhere. Even though you don’t need a full itinerary for your staycation, it is important to do some planning so you don’t wind up sitting around the house binge-watching reruns of an old sitcom, unless of course that is all you want to do!
Planning Your Staycation
Coinciding a staycation with friends is ideal—this way you can all submit ideas, decide and enjoy together. The best part of a staycation is the money you save on travel and hotel expenses, not to mention avoiding the stresses of airports, train stations or traffic on the road. Many are hesitant to take a staycation because they are worried that they will get bored or won’t be able to relax. Planning big events such as wine tastings, going into the city for a posh lunch or scheduling a day at the spa are great ways to ensure you will enjoy optimal relaxation. If you are looking to schedule an appointment at a med spa, you have many options. The beauty of scheduling at a med spa in Northfield if you live in the greater Chicago area is you can either plan a trip into the city afterwards or avoid the city altogether. Having appointments, a schedule and reservations may sound a little rigid and like a lot of work, but it is well worth the effort in the long run.
Put Yourself First for a Change
Remember, this time is for you. This is your opportunity to do whatever you want to do, so make sure you plan accordingly! If you don’t have time off and are just looking for a quick weekend or day-getaway, than look no further than a good, long, relaxing day at the spa.
