Staycation Underway

I am guessing everyone is in the middle of or not too far away from either a self-imposed or government imposed staycation for the next couple of weeks. While it seems counterintuitive to someone like me, a very social person; I am choosing to look at it as the opportunity to reset and reconnect.

The pressures we have in order to meet  regular demands on our time, should be lessen and hopefully we will all be able to enjoy what matters most. Hopefully, we will all be able to spend a little more time with family. Maybe engage in those activities we “never get around to doing”. Maybe even start new daily rituals such as reading first thing in the morning or family traditions such as game night every Tuesday evening.

So for my travel post this month, I am giving some suggestions on things to do while you are home. What things have you thought of doing?

  1. Game night
  2. Learn about your family history
  3. Research the area you live in and find out who settled it and how it became what it is today.
  4. Don’t forget to step outside for some sunshine even if you only go as far as your backyard or patio
  5. Spend some time reflecting on where you want your life to go over the next year and make some action plans
