The holiday season is here once more and everybody is excited. However, unlike in the previous years, there is a pandemic that’s limiting movement and social activities. Despite all that, you can still make the most out of your holidays by doing the following things:
While travel is currently limited depending on your location, if you have the ability to go on a small vacation now is the time. Spoil yourself this holiday season by traveling to an exotic location. Go where you’ve always wanted. Visit the Bahamas or the Maldives and enjoy clear turquoise seawater. Live in condos built on the sea. Wake up to a delightful sunrise and jump straight into the ‘pool’ from your room.
Go on a Safari in Africa. Camp in the wild and take pictures of wild animals. Experience the great wildebeest migration from your tent. See how wild animals survive in the savannah. Visit an animal orphanage and feed endangered species.
Visit Asia and learn about Buddhism. Learn about early civilizations in Asia and how they helped define the rest of the world. Experience disparate cultures and enjoy local delicacies.
The good news is that you don’t require a lot of money to travel to most of the exotic places mentioned on this list, especially in less-developed countries. Since your currency is more valuable, you can do a lot with a ‘limited’ budget.
It’s the end of the year, and your boss has already given you your check plus bonus. You’ve sorted your bills and saved some money for a rainy day. You’re left with some money to spend, what do you do? Purchase the things you’ve always desired.
During the holidays, the demand and supply of gift items are high. Since retailers are competing against each other, they offer massive discounts. Take advantage of the situation because you can get your favorite item for half the price this holiday season.
If you’re buying something for the first time, read the reviews to understand the product from a non-biased point-of-view. For example, if you’re thinking about buying hair loss solutions, you can read theradome reviews. You can also use social media to find out more about the product.
To make shopping less hectic, shop online and have the goods delivered at home or the curbside. This is the best option because you don’t have to be in a crowded store with many people. It keeps you safe from COVID-19.
3. Engage in a Sport or New Activity
Incredible experiences lead to the best memories. Therefore, pamper yourself by doing something fun. You can do zip-lining or sky diving. Try out new things this holiday season because the world is unpredictable. If there’s one thing you can learn from this pandemic, never take things for granted. Make the most of the time you have because you never know when the next pandemic will happen.
Play some one-on-one basketball against friends. Sweat a little and have fun.
You can also try rock climbing or trekking to the top of a hill. Other activities you can try include snorkeling, surfing, hang gliding, and riding on a hot air balloon.
4. Spend the Day at the Spa
Try all treatments at the spa. Start with a facial. You can choose from three common types of facials: oxygen, LED light therapy, and European facials. They all open up the pores of your skin, allowing it to breathe and look great. The facials also include exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and leave your face looking brighter.
The other therapy you should undergo is a body treatment. This therapy works on your entire body. Here, the therapist rubs a mixture of essential oils and sea salt on your body. After all parts of your body are covered in the sea salt mixture, you’re asked to wash it off without soap. The result is oily clean skin.
From there, you can get a full-body massage to relax your muscles and body. Then, finish your spa day with a manicure and pedicure.
5. Learn Something New
Take a short online course on a topic that interests you. There are plenty of options these days. Even celebrities are teaching short online classes. Therefore, take advantage of the holidays by learning a new skill and expanding your knowledge portfolio.
You can also learn the basics of playing musical instruments in a few weeks. Alternatively, you can learn self-defense skills to protect yourself in case somebody tries to break into your house.
To conclude, you can pamper yourself this holiday season by learning something new, spending the day at the spa, traveling, shopping, and having fun. The choice is yours; you can either perform one of the things on this list or do everything.
