Go on a hotel-style micro vacation at home
Take a well-deserved break! See how you can find the real vacation feeling in no time. These tailored tips – from 2 hours down to 5 minutes – make you come back relaxed and happy.
The soothing breather
Pour yourself water in a fancy glass. Add coconut water and ice cubes with berries and herbs frozen inside. Place a cool towel over your forehead and eyes. Lean back. (If it’s a chilly time of year, just go with a warm towel and drink instead.)
Feet up, tempo down
Throw open your window, put your feet on the sill, and dive into a longed-for read. Or perhaps take a virtual tour of a museum online. Either way, a sea of cushions and covers ensure that you’ll be extra comfortable.
The miniature spa session
Deck out a trolley with your self-spoiling essentials to always be prepared to indulge, whenever the moment arises. Hang lavender, rosemary or eucalyptus from your shower head (let the steam do the rest). There, your spa is scented and ready.
Give yourself the room-service treatment
Order delivery from a local restaurant – try a new type of food, like you might on vacation – set the table to heighten the moment, and dig in on a delicious meal.
Hush – it’s movie time
Jump into your pajamas, grab a bowl of popcorn, and lower your black-out blind. Add a laptop stand for the screen, an indirect light source to avoid straining your eyes – and your improvised home theater is ready to take you to other worlds.
