Staycations are a great way to take a break from work while still saving some money, and they can be equally as enjoyable as a normal holiday. But your days off can turn into a humdrum week of sitting in front of the TV if you don't plan accordingly. Photo by 70023venus2009.
If you want to have a true staycation, Ruth McMahon explains to Fast Company that planning out your staycation is just as important as planning a normal holiday. Imagine you are travelling somewhere and you need to put together a loose itinerary. Plan out hikes, a spa day, lunches with friends, day trips to surrounding areas and museum visits. You don't need to overdo it and wear yourself out — if should be somewhat relaxing after all — but having a little structure to your time off at home can really boost the enjoyment factor. You'll return to work more refreshed and feel like you didn't just waste your days away on the couch.
