Red beach chairs on the beach Everybody dreams of going on a holiday and taking their much-deserved vacation. The thought of traveling itself can make anyone feel a surge of adrenaline and excitement. The thing is, many people end up having these desires unsatisfied since they can’t push through. In many cases, the culprit is the budget.

Don’t let your dream vacation go down the drain. South Bend International Airport says that there are many ways you can push through with your plans, especially now that you can find affordable flights in the city. And with the many weekends a year has, you have all the more reason to take that trip.

Decompress and relieve yourself of stress

Studies show that stressing and worrying over situations have a negative impact on your overall health — making you feel physically exhausted, upsetting your digestion, and messing with your concentration. When you’re on vacation, you’ll feel these unhealthy emotions inside of you dissipating. You’ll feel relieved and happy from having time for yourself or with friends and loved ones

Come back with fully recharged batteries

Rejuvenating is the key to living a longer, healthier life. Not having time to do this will lead to the early development and onset of health problems. It won’t take long before you feel tired and fatigued — physically and mentally.

Take the time to recharge your mind and body. Getting away for even a weekend from your usual hectic schedule is enough to give yourself a full recharge. As an added bonus, feeling rejuvenated will positively impact the output you produce at work.

Again, you don’t have to spend a huge chunk of your savings to take a great, memorable, and decompressing vacation. Even if you’d have to spend some money for it, all the health benefits you’ll enjoy are truly worth it.


Two Super Simple Ways to Get a Super Holiday on a Weekend

Whale Watching

Whale WatchingYou spend weekends lounging at home, taking walks around the neighbourhood and doing nothing. After all, you deserve the non-active weekend following a stressful week at work. You need this weekend to ‘top up’ lost energy reserve, and recharge your mind and body so you avoid taking sick days. Your routine, though, is becoming dull and you feel like doing something else.

Here are two effortless ways to experience a great holiday on a weekend:

1. Don’t stay indoors

By all means, catch up on sleep and stay in bed longer on a Saturday or Sunday. But that doesn’t mean you should lie down all day. While appealing, it can sap more energy and lead to a sedentary lifestyle on weekends, which can bring about chronic diseases.

Rather than turn into a couch potato, go for a hike or spend some time in the park. Get as much fresh air and sunlight as possible. After a week spent behind your desk in a building, your mind and body will appreciate the outdoors.

2. Do a one-day holiday

Think of it as a mini holiday. Instead of waiting months before you take a trip, look up activities that you can enjoy for an entire day. Go to museums around your city and rediscover contemporary art.

Book a whale watching cruise and marvel at majestic whales. Western Australia is a good place to go for these tours because humpback whales migrate to the area around June. While in WA, you can also head to Penguin Island for more spectacular wildlife viewing.

Other mini holiday ideas include an overnight stay at a seaside villa, a drive through scenic Great Ocean Road with a stopover at surf mecca Bells Beach and a simple gastronomic odyssey of Australia’s best restaurants in your area.

You have multiple options to spend a better, grander weekend than staying at home. If you’re able, take a quick trip out of the city. If not, explore parts of your city you have never visited.

A mini holiday will do your mind and body some good. And when Monday comes around, you’re ready for another week-long ‘battle’ with paperwork, projects and meetings.
