How to staycation like a pro

1 – First, we recommend that you unplug completely. Working from home has been a double-edged sword. While there’s no commuting or dealing with office politics, it’s been hard to turn off all the notifications. The digital detox extends to social media too. If you can’t resist a peek now and then, at least mute all the accounts that might trigger any negative feelings.

2 – If you’re staying in your own home, hire a cleaner before and after. The point of a vacation is to disrupt your routine and to get a break from the chores of everyday. With a clean house, you can just focus on bonding with family or getting to do more creative projects that you typically don’t have time for.

3 – Plan your meals in advance. If you’re looking forward to tackling some challenging recipes, shop for all the obscure ingredients and equipment before. On the other hand, if your aim is to not cook at all, make sure you make some reservations at all the places you’ve been wanting to try in advance.

5 – Most importantly, give yourself permission to do nothing. Sure you can go to that museum that you haven’t been to in a decade or rent a bike and explore a new part of town. But no pressure! Take lots of naps. Binge watch Succession. Don’t judge what you need to do (or not do) in order to feel rejuvenated.
