Ready, Set, Relax: How to Get into Your Vacation Mood

Are you feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Is the thought of a vacation the only thing keeping you going? We've all been there. It's hard to leave our work, routine and responsibilities behind but trust me, you deserve this.

To help you get into the vacation mood and make the most out of your time, I rounded up five tips and tricks to help you relax and unwind.

1. Disconnect from the World

The first step to getting into your vacation mood is to disconnect from the world, even if it’s just for a few hours. Turn off your phone, unplug your computer, and log out of social media to declutter your mind from daily distractions. If you can't completely disconnect, set aside one hour a day to check your phone and email, and no more than that. Your vacation is the perfect time to step back and enjoy yourself.

2. Indulge in a Spa Day

A vacation can’t be complete without a SPA day. Pampering yourself with a massage, facial or body treatment will relax your muscles and release endorphins which will make you feel happier and more relaxed. Book a Spa day at one of our many luxurious resorts or treat yourself to a massage on the beach.

3. Get Moving

I'm not suggesting you go for a 10k run, but a little bit of exercise can go a long way. Working out releases endorphins, which can help reduce stress levels and enhance the feeling of well-being. Take a walk on the beach, go for a swim or a bike ride, and enjoy the beautiful scenery around you. Not only will it make you happier and healthier, but it’s also a great way to explore the beautiful landscapes of your destination.

4. Take a Break from Alcohol and Caffeine

Alcohol and caffeine can be great in moderation, but sometimes they can throw you off balance. Limit your alcohol and caffeine intake while on vacation and try to hydrate with water and fresh juices instead. This small change can improve your energy levels and help you relax and unwind more naturally.

5. Plan Ahead

To really get into your vacation mood, make a plan. Before you leave, research activities, restaurants, and even little-known spots to visit. Create a schedule for each day and be sure to include something fun and unique. A good plan will help you make the most out of your vacation, and when you have a clear idea of what to expect, you can relax and enjoy yourself without worrying about what comes next.


Getting into the vacation mood can be a challenge, but it’s worth it. Whether you disconnect from technology or indulge in a spa day, you deserve to relax and unwind. Try to explore new activities, stay hydrated and plan ahead, to make the most out of your vacation.

Remember, you don’t have to do it all, but taking some time to relax and rejuvenate will help you return to your busy life feeling refreshed and renewed. I hope these tips and tricks help you enjoy your vacation to the fullest!

Happy Travels!
