Chances are, you know at least three women in your life right now who are in need of some serious R&R — including yourself. If you're dreaming of the gift of relaxation this holiday season, but don't have a spare week (or a couple extra thousand dollars) to jet off to the spa and indulge in soothing massages and feel-good facials, we've got you covered. Why not find your own ohm this year with a nice, relaxing holiday staycation?
What is a staycation holiday?
A holiday staycation is exactly what it sounds like — a seasonal retreat from it all that's doesn't require you to plan a single minute of holiday travel, which can send stress levels skyrocketing, since you'll be spending it in the comfort of your very own home.
The difference between a holiday staycation and any other old day lies in how you spend your time. Rather than busying yourself with housework or tending to bills and other worries, a holiday staycation should be spent focusing on yourself and your own self-care.
As with a normal staycation, your options aren't confined to your own four walls: You can also plan events and activities in your hometown that you might not normally have time to do. Maybe you indulge in a lengthy nature walk or pencil in some time for some holiday light viewing. As long as it relaxes you and lifts your spirits, it's a worthy holiday staycation endeavor!
