pc8003-retro-cloud4(3)Your company is demanding more of you. Competition is fierce and margins are squeezed.  Your family is sucking you dry…emotionally, physically, and financially.  Your back is boasting 5 new knots and the things that you once enjoyed, like cooking or browsing the isles of TJ Maxx, seem more like a tedious chore.  YES!  I’m talking about YOU (and ME.)


Staycations are short, home-town “vacations” free of traveling hassles of rental cars, air travel, or big ticket items such as Disney or Royal Caribbean.  You deviate from your daily routine…no work, no home chores.  Enjoying local restaurants, interesting attractions, biking, art, theater, and hotels can all have a sweet spot in your staycation.  Most anything goes.  Cooking out, reading a good book, or spending time with your kids can be a part of your time off adventure.


Seriously! You need this. You need this now! Why? Since you asked…
1.To save money
2. To eliminate the physical drain that traditional travel produces
3. To support your local community
4.To disconnect from technology for a brain and eye break
5.To repair your over-worked body
6.To restore your sanity
7.To nurture important relationships that you have been neglecting
8.To be a better employee
9. To be a better parent
10. To be a better son/daughter, friend, co-worker, volunteer, alien, whatever…


10 Reasons you need a Staycation


What are you waiting for…..schedule your staycation now….your family, your co-workers, and yes, you will benefit and say “Thank You.”
