It’s not hard finding things to occupy your time when you’re on vacation for a couple weeks. But if those weeks stretch into months, you’re going to have a lot more time on your hands. So how do you extend that vacation mindset? Well here are a few tips to help you make the most of your summer staycation:

  • Get A Job: Make that vacation work for you! Getting a summer job is a great way to kill time and give yourself some extra spending money to enjoy on your down time. You’ll also get to meet new people as well and learn more about the area you’re staying in. Many popular summer areas will hire seasonal employees to help with the increase in tourists.

  • Take A Class: Ever wanted to start taking yoga classes but never had the time? Well here’s your perfect opportunity! Learn a new skill or improve one you already have by taking some classes in the area. There are usually plenty of options to choose from!

  • Day Trips: So you’ve explored the local area, now it’s time to branch out! Go on a day-trip and visit some of the more remote places. Find a good hiking trail, or maybe a beautiful waterfront. In fact, it’s a good idea to be asking the locals as often as possible for recommendations on some of their favorite spots.

  • Relax: You’re on vacation after all. Remember why you’re there. If you’re filling your days with the same stress and chaos of your life back home, you’re not “vacationing” right. Make sure that no matter what, you always make time to relax, unwind, and enjoy yourself.
