What are your expectations for what you will have on your plate this holiday season? We all have them, expectations and obligations to visit family, buy presents, and put on a happy face no matter how stressed we are. Well, over the years, families have started turning holiday traditions upside down! Here is why you should not feel guilty about taking the opportunity to have some unexpected fun this holiday season!
6. OFF SEASON DISCOUNTS / DEALS:
One of the biggest worries and stressors during the season is having enough money for all of the travel, gifts, and parties. Taking a trip during the holiday season will actually save money because you are able to take advantage of off season deals for many destinations. From all-inclusive getaways to discounts on airfare, you can use the savings to bring back lovely Caribbean themed gifts for family and friends. Everyone wins!
5. ESCAPE THE HOLIDAY SEASON MADNESS:
4. TRADE IN THE SNOW BOOTS FOR FLIP FLOPS:
It is a well-known fact that cabin fever can lead to depression. Escape the foot of snow outside your door and trade it in for crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. Engage in activities that the whole family can enjoy and make new holiday traditions that will create lasting memories. Everyone will agree; flip flop and shorts instead of snow shoes and sweaters will make for a lively family holiday photo!
3. A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR FAMILY BONDING:
2. SIT ON A BEACH INSTEAD OF IN A CAR:
1. IT’S YOUR VACATION TIME, USE IT HOW YOU WANT:
Clearly there is a theme in this post, but it doesn’t just have to apply to taking a vacation during the holidays. The more important message is to take a vacation! Getaway with your loved ones to relax and spend quality time together. After some rest, your relationships will be stronger, your tolerance for nonsense will be higher, and your mind will be sharper.
