How to Make the Most of Your Next Vacation

By Jeannette Paulino

Picture this: you’re packed and ready to go on your annual vacation to a paradise beach or to a beautiful mountain range. You’re excited. Your whole family is excited! You get to your destination and suddenly you feel like you’re not having enough fun. Sure, you’re relaxed and enjoying the experiences you’re having, but don’t you wish you were getting more out of your trip? With these simple tips,  your vacation can become a fun experience of memories and magic.

Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

As humans, we tend to gravitate towards experiences that make us feel comfortable. We’re creatures of habit, can you blame us? While on vacation, try taking the road less traveled, tasting new foods, and saying "yes" more than you say "no." Be spontaneous while you can.

Enjoy the Journey

Many people get caught up in planning every step of a vacation and a heavy itinerary can pile on the stress. Among finding things to do, traveling, and managing a family, you can lose details that make a vacation truly magical. Don’t rush from place to place, slow down, and enjoy your surroundings. From the airport to the resort, to dinner on the beach and beyond, there are experiences that you could be missing.

Turn Off Technology

Technology isn’t just something that kids and young adults seemed to be attached to, so powering off might be the best thing for your vacation. Why spend all the money and hassle on a trip where everyone’s ignoring each other? Get connected with each other and you won’t regret it. Try playing cards or board games, or even try just talking with each other.

Make Sure to Relax!

A vacation should be a time to relax and have fun, free from the stress of your everyday life. Enjoy the luxury of a nice hotel, the feeling of sand between your toes, or how the water creates ripples with your fingertips...
