Making the most of your vacation is essential. You’ve put in your vacation time, packed, and you are ready to go. But, what if you get there and it doesn’t live up to your expectations? That is a huge bummer! Don’t let that happen and instead, follow these ways to make the most out of your vacation – 

5 Ways to Make the Most of your Vacation - Making the most of your vacation is essential. Follow these tips to make the most of your vacation.

Put your phone down

I know this is hard, but it feels like nowadays, we get so caught up in our phones that we are not truly living life, or living in the moment. We see everything behind a screen, and once the moment is over, we are able to re-live the moment again (via pictures and videos), but we never truly lived it in the moment.

In normal day-to-day life, you should try to put your phone down more and live in the moment, but when you are on a vacation, that is REALLY the time to focus on screen-free time, so that you are able to live in the moment and you are able to really enjoy your vacation, while bonding with your family and friends, as well. These are the moments that you will want to look back on and remember how amazing of a time you had. Don’t look back and wonder what it would have been like if you had truly taken a moment to LIVE outside of your screen. Focus on living in the moment now, instead.

One caveat: I know that this is so challenging as a content creator and influencer. However, learning a balance is very important. You do not need to be on your phone all of the time, and you do not need to be away from your phone all of the time. This is your work, after all. Balance is key, and I know that you can figure it out! 

 

Figure out your work situation ahead of time

 

Nothing will ruin your vacation more like needing to work the entire time, because you failed to plan. If possible, figure out a way to finish your work ahead of time so that you do not have to worry about it (at least, as much) during your trip.

Another option is finding an assistant that can take over for you, while you are on your vacation, and then once you get back, you can get back to it. Whatever you need to do, find a way to make the most of your trip by not having to work much. This requires you to possibly work a little more ahead of time, or at least plan ahead of time, which is a bit time intensive, but so worth it once you begin to relax and shed away each worry!

Slow down

Again – this is hard to do. In America, we are taught the “go, go, go,” hustle mentality lifestyle and we never slow down, but there are truly so many benefits to slowing down, and I think that our society is slowly getting more on board with it. Slowing down allows you to truly enjoy the joys of life.

The small things, the big things, and all of the things in between. You will enjoy the sun, the sky, the flowers, the feel of the wind on your skin, and so many other little things that you never noticed before. Slow down and reap the benefits.

 

Make sure your accommodations are close to everything

Take the “less traveled” path

A lot of the time, when you take the path that is traveled the most, you run into traffic and other undesirable vacation vibes, because there are more people. If you take the path less traveled, you will find spots that may be hidden and only found by locals AND you will enjoy the quieter moments (and hopefully sweeter moments) that couldn’t be found on the path most traveled.
