How to Kick Back, Relax, and Vacation at Home

Put the World On Hold

  • Take time out—literally. Eliminating reminders of time helps wipe away the stress of the daily grind, says Amy McDonald, spa director of El Monte Sagrado, in Taos, New Mexico. Gather up all the clocks in your house and stash them in a dresser drawer. Throw your watch in next to them. Leave them there for the whole day (or two, or five).
  • Turn off the ringers on your phones and mute the answering machine. Check messages only when you want to, keeping in mind that “not at all” is always an option.
  • Do an “out of the office” message for your e-mail (even if your office is a corner of the playroom). Say you won’t be checking your e-mail till you’re back from vacation. Then power down the computer and throw a towel over it. Read more here.

Staying at home could also really be relaxing as long as you really keep yourself out of work. Keep everything that involves work away from you. Just relax and have time for yourself. In this way, you could also enjoy a peaceful home and a peaceful mind. Vacation doesn’t have happen outside home. But if you ever get a chance to have a getaway or a vacation outside your home, don’t deprive yourself from it.
