How To Turn Your Day Off Into A Staycation

"Work, work, work" when "all you had to do was stay."

If you are anything like me, a vacation is probably not anywhere in your near future. Your summer probably consists of working, working, and working. There is going to be very little time for relaxing, but on that rare day that you have off, the last thing you want to do is any type of work. So why not turn in your at home day into a staycation? For those of you have no clue where to even begin, here are some ideas:

1. In-home movie theater

Grab some pillows and make a fort just like you used to when you were a kid. Throw the blankets on the floor, pop some popcorn, and rent a RedBox. We all know that renting a RedBox is way cheaper than going to see a movie for $10 a person.

2. Camping in the backyard

This option is super easy for those of you who live far away from a camping site or simply just don't want to go to a camping site.

3. Play outside

Let's just revert back to the simpler times before smartphones and smart TV's. As kids, we all used to run outside around the house and lets face it, we had the time of our lives. We had so much fun doing the simple things before life got so complicated.

4. Game night

Invite some people over and grab some board games, put the phones on the table and have a blast!

5. Explore your city

Instead of going to all the usual spots that you head off to, why not look at the city from a different perspective. Go and do some of the touristy things around the city that maybe you haven't done before. Maybe you will learn something about the place you call home.

6. Crafting

If you have any holidays or birthdays coming up, make a gift! Throw on some music and craft the night away. They say the best types of gifts can't be bought!

7. Massage/ Facial

If you really feel like splurging, treat yourself to a massage or facial. Afterwards you will feel so relaxed and ready to take on the world!

8. Visit the Beach

If you live near the beach, take a towel and head out to catch some rays. You can always enjoy the summer sun as well as the beautiful scenery that comes with it. If you don't live near the beach, grab a lounge chair and soak up some sun and really enjoy the nature around you.

9. Enjoy the local eateries

Sometimes we all get sick of the food that is right by our house but there seem to be so many new restaurants moving into all different kinds of areas. Go ahead and try a place that is brand new or go and revisit a place you haven't been to in a while.

10. Stars at night

Grab the binoculars and find a spot to watch the stars. We all used to do it at night but now that life got crazy, we find ourselves missing the little things. So, go ahead and enjoy the view.

Although the summer has many possibilities for all of us, sometimes it is just nice to sit back and relax. Hopefully, that staycation can be a great break from reality.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
