Five Relaxing Things To Keep On Your Summer Travel Itinerary

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Ah, summer. It’s a season for relaxing, rejuvenating and allowing your mind, body and spirit to heal. Often, vacationers feel they need to make the most of their time off, seeing and experiencing as much as they possibly can in an allotted amount of time. However, the mentality of doing all that is possible can often lead a vacationer to need a vacation after their vacation. Keeping a few things in mind during summer time vacationing can ensure a relaxing time off from work and other everyday responsibilities.

  • Unpack!

Whether you decide to visit an all-inclusive resort, become an urban explorer or decide to get back to nature, be sure to unpack your bags. Even if you’re only going to be away for one weekend, it is no fun to live out of a suitcase. Unpacking your bags and putting your things in the available storage space gives a sense of organization and relaxation, leading to a better overall vacationing experience.

  • Leave Your Gadgets at Home

Now, don’t worry. I’m not telling you to never check your cell phone while you’re on vacation. On the flip side, do you really need to take two cell phones, your tablet, and a laptop on vacation with you? Probably not. Take a cell phone in case there is an emergency and don’t forget the digital camera, but leave everything else at home. Remember, if you are on vacation, there is really no need to keep up with your business contacts. If you are in a lead position, delegate your work to someone else for the duration of your vacation.

  • Spend Some Time in a Sauna

“Sitting in a steaming hot sauna room or sinking into a hot tub is perhaps one of the most relaxing things that you can do while you’re on vacation,” according to nutritional expert Michael Myles. Spending time sweating during a summer vacation might not seem like the most ideal situation, but relaxing in a sauna not only helps joints and muscles, it also helps you sweat out toxins that are in your body. Imagine that – getting healthier while you’re on vacation! Look here for more information about sauna detoxification http://toprehabs.com/infographics/an-infographic-on-the-benefits-of-sauna-detox/.

  • Get Back to Nature

Surrounding yourself with green trees, lush flowers and babbling brooks cleanses the spirit. Without the hubbub of city life, you can get in touch with yourself. Relax and read a book under some trees or go wading in creek. Spend time exploring our beautiful planet by yourself or with a loved one to rejuvenate your mind and body.

  • Pamper Yourself

If you decide that nature is just a bit too much for you, be sure to go somewhere or stay in a hotel that allows you to pamper yourself. Get a massage or a facial, buy a new outfit that makes you look and feel amazing, or simply get a good night’s rest in a comfortable bed.
