Creating a Relaxing Atmosphere

The first step to a successful staycation is setting the mood. Turn your home into a relaxing retreat with these simple ideas:

  • Declutter and Clean: Start by tidying up your space! A clean environment promotes relaxation and reduces stress.
  • Candles and Aromatherapy: Use scented candles or essential oil diffusers to fill your home with calming scents like lavender or eucalyptus.
  • Comfortable Spaces: Get some cozy throws, pillows, and blankets to create inviting lounging areas.
  • Soft Lighting: Use fairy lights or soft lamps to create a warm and relaxing ambiance.
Indulge in Self-Care

A staycation is the perfect time to pamper yourself. Here are some self-care activities to try:
 
  • Mindfulness and Meditation: Set aside time for meditation or yoga to relax your mind and body.
  • Reading Nook: Create a cozy reading nook and dive into that book you’ve been meaning to read.
Entertainment at Home

Keep the fun going with these entertainment ideas:
 
  • Movie Marathon: Plan a movie marathon with your favorite films or series. You can even build a fort with the kids to make this even more memorable! Don’t forget the popcorn
  • Game Night: Organize a game night with board games, card games, or video games.
  • Virtual Travel: Explore the world from your couch with virtual museum tours, online cooking classes, or virtual reality experiences.
With a little creativity you can turn your home into the ultimate staycation destination. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy your perfect staycation!

Binge watch TV shows and go on local hikes.

My ideal staycation would be to sign up for an AMC subscription and then see a new movie every day. I guess this would only work this time of year or at Christmastime, when there's loads of new movies in theaters :)

Perfect staycation for me would be great books to read, my dogs close by and snuggled under a blanket with a fire going. Of course there would be great coffee to drink as well.

A perfect staycation has lots of books, movies, and games, great family and/or friends, and great snacks!

Perfect staycation is staying in my pajamas all day long. Drinking good coffee and reading good books!

A perfect Staycation = Breakfast out with friends, some shopping, a hit movie in the afternoon, and then dinner with family. Bliss!

My ideal staycation is a dark thunderstorm occuring outside and we are all inside watching scary movies and playing fun board games!

We love staycations - catch up/binge on all missed shows, make ice cream at home and order takeout.

I love staycations! Nothing like sleeping in your own bed - napping when you feel like it. It is wonderful to be able to use aroma therapies and meditate on life with no rush or time issues. Cooking with family - everyone chooses there favorite. Time to sit in the shade and read that book we just can't seem to find time for. Playing in the sprinklers and being silly - sign me up!
