Twenty Things To Do For The Perfect Staycation

The cost of living crisis continues to affect a lot of people. While we try our best to muddle through with the Summer Holidays rapidly approaching some of us may be starting to think about things to do if a traditional holiday isn’t possible. Here are 20 ideas to help you have a perfect staycation.

  • Create a Relaxing Atmosphere: Set the mood by tidying up your living space, adding some scented candles, playing soothing music, and putting fresh flowers around the house.

  • Unplug from Work: Disconnect from work emails and messages. Inform your colleagues that you're on staycation and avoid checking work-related platforms.

  • Plan Your Activities: Make a list of activities you'd like to do during your staycation. Having a plan will help you make the most of your time.

  • Try New Recipes: Experiment with cooking or baking new recipes. Prepare delicious meals or treats that you've always wanted to try.

  • Movie or TV Show Marathon: Have a movie or TV show marathon with your favourite films or shows. Create a cozy movie corner with blankets and snacks.

  • Virtual Tours: Take virtual tours of museums, galleries, or famous landmarks from around the world. Many places offer online tours that can transport you to different destinations.

  • Read a Book: Pick up that book you've been meaning to read but haven't had the time. Enjoy some quiet moments with a good book.

  • Outdoor Activities: Explore your local area by going for hikes, bike rides, or nature walks in nearby parks or trails.

  • Pamper Yourself: Set aside time for self-care. Take long baths, give yourself a spa day, or practice yoga and meditation.

  • Indoor Games and Puzzles: Play board games, card games, or do jigsaw puzzles with family or friends.

  • Learn Something New: Take an online course or start a new hobby that interests you. It could be anything from painting to playing a musical instrument.

  • Virtual Gatherings: Organise virtual hangouts with friends and family through video calls. Host online game nights or catch up with loved ones you haven't seen in a while.

  • Picnic in the Park: Pack a picnic basket with your favourite snacks and head to a nearby park for a relaxed outdoor meal.

  • Gardening: If you have a garden or a balcony, spend time tending to your plants and creating a serene green space.

  • Exercise and Fitness: Incorporate some physical activities into your staycation. You can try yoga, home workouts, or even dance sessions to keep active.

  • Star Gazing: On a clear night, stargazing can be a magical and peaceful experience. Identify constellations or watch for shooting stars.

  • Virtual Reality Adventures: If you have a virtual reality headset, explore various VR experiences from the comfort of your home.

  • Journaling: Take some time each day to jot down your thoughts, feelings, and experiences during your staycation.

  • DIY Projects: Get creative and start some do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. You can redecorate a room, create handmade crafts, or work on home improvement tasks you've been putting off.

  • Virtual Workshops and Classes: Many organisations and experts offer virtual workshops and classes on a wide range of topics. Join an online cooking class, art workshop, or any other subject that piques your interest. It's a fun way to learn something new and engage with others virtually.
