Here’s How to Have an Awesome Spring Break Without Leaving Home

Spring break is quickly approaching, and you still have nothing planned! After finishing mid-term exams and submitting papers, you may have decided to forego a trip to the beach with your girls and stay at home.

So, what will become of your vacation? Or should I say “staycation”? If you are a homebody (like me), or just want to avoid spending money on a trip, there are plenty of things to do for every mood you may have during the break. Here’s a list of activities for each day of the week tailored to fit your mood:


Monday (Tired or stressed): By this time, a full weekend has passed. And if you’re still unable to relax, take a crack at these stress relievers to jump-start the worry-free week!

  1. Sleep all day long!

  2. Meditate.

  3. Watch a video about animals. (Take a look at some beautiful aquatic life!)

  4. Have a spa day.


Tuesday (Adventurous): Hopefully Monday helped you refresh and recharge. Now it’s time to do something spontaneous!

  1. Try something new! (A new hairstyle, makeup look, yoga pose, anything!)

  2. Throw some herbs and spices together with food from the fridge/pantry.

  3. Listen to a different genre of music. (Spotify has a variety of genres & moods.)
