Let’s be honest, 2020 has been hard on us all. Between the global pandemic and the cultural unrest, we’re all ready for a break. The need for self-care is on the rise, and more and more individuals are finding the value in taking a vacation specifically for the opportunity to rest, relax, and take care of themselves. Our team at St. John’s Car Rental knows that the perfect place to escape from the stresses of 2020 is the beach, so today we’re going to help you plan a self-care vacation.

Self-Care Vacation

Go Screen-Free

Our first and probably best tip is to leave you laptop and iPad at home and lock your cell phone in your hotel room safe. It may feel strange at first to not have your technology with you at all times, but shedding those devices will eventually leave you feeling liberated and peaceful. Taking a break from social media and the news will do wonders for your well-being.

Be Active

Yes, you’re on vacation to rest and relax; however, working out on vacation is always a great idea when you’re normally stuck behind a desk. If exercise isn’t really your thing, do something easy like taking a long walk each morning. Fitness is an essential part of boosting your physical and mental health, so take this opportunity to develop good habits you can take home with you.

Savor – Don’t Stress Eat

Vacation is a wonderful time to try out new foods and indulge a little where you wouldn’t normally. However, it’s important to keep a good relationship with food and make sure you’re not stress eating. Many resorts offer cooking classes, which can be a great way to learn a new skill and also enjoy a meal that you’ve put your heart into. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find your stress melting away as you spend a day learning to cook local cuisine.
