Feeling tired and burned out lately? Maybe you have been working so hard that stress is finally getting the best of you. While we need to work our ass off so we can have the finer things in life, it is also important that we look after our health as well. And taking a time off from your routine from time to time is a way to shake off that blues from our system.
Most people will go out of town or even out of the country to get that much needed rest. But if you have limited time and budget, a dream vacay may not be within your reach. Why not try staycation then? It is the best alternative to a short getaway without too much trouble of packing things, going out on a long trip and burning a hole in your wallet.
Here are some useful tips to make out the most of your weekend staycation.
Pack light. Save yourself from the trouble of heavy bags. You will only be gone for two days. Pack two to three days worth of clothes and weekend essentials in your carry all bag so checking in will be a breeze.
Plan your itinerary. Just like any vacation, it will be helpful if you plan your days ahead. Draw up an itinerary of the things you want to do and the places you want to visit. Don’t just go shopping. Visit places in the city that you don’t normally go on a regular basis such as museums, weekend markets, and parks to give you a different perspective of the city.

Sneak in a little “me time”. Whatever your plans are, always give yourself a chance to recuperate from the hustle and bustle of your regular grind. Take a lot of rest, get a massage or take a long shower. Soak yourself with happiness and forget your worries so you can come back energized.
Have a great weekend ladies! ❤
