Do the winter blues have you feeling down? Winter is the best time to dream about vacations and exotic getaways. But if you can’t pull off a long trip, consider adding spice into your life with a weekend getaway. The weekend is a time to relax and recover, what better way to do this then to escape your normal surroundings. Here are simple ideas to make your weekends more rewarding.
Take a road trip to another city in your state. You can take the trip alone or with the entire family. Spending time with loved ones in a car will help you bond and feel closer to one another. Pick a destination that everyone will enjoy. The best part of a road trip is the journey, even more than the destination. Pick a route that lets you explore many interesting things. Like farms with petting zoos, museums and interesting road side signs. Some of the United States most popular routes are Highway 101 California’s Pacific Coast Trail and Route 66. For a scenic glorious view of the Pacific Coast and tall evergreens choose 101. If you are looking for a southern America route choose route 66, which takes traveler through the southwest region connecting Santa Monica and Chicago.
Camping is a great way to bring the family together. Spending time in nature helps us feel more connected with the world and ourselves. Sleeping in the woods has a natural way of relaxing most people. If you are feeling overwhelmed with the burdens of life, consider pitching a tent and taking a hike. Being outdoors helps people enjoy life more. There are many great camping sites all around the country. If you don’t want to play in the woods all weekend you can go for a day hike. Visit a local park or state park and explore the great big wilderness. You will feel more grounded when the next week starts. Plus getting physical activity will help invigorate the mind and body.
If you are feeling stressed out but cannot manage a weekend trip anywhere, treat yourself to a spa day. Going to a local day spa will help you reconnect with yourself and feel more balanced. Plus it is like a mini vacation for your mind. Enjoy being pampered and massaged. Each spa has a different type of theme and service. Make sure you do your research and go to one that fits your needs and personality. Don’t forget to ask questions if you feel uncomfortable, the spa therapists are there to help you and make your time enjoyable.
