Have you planned how to use all your vacation days for 2019? This year January 29th is the day for #PlanForVacation! Let’s start dreaming by using these tips to use up all those amazing vacation days.
#1 Two Days Off a Week
Do you normally have 2 days off in a row? Maybe you have Saturdays and Sundays off. Maybe you have Tuesday and Friday off from work. Maximize those days in your planning for a longer trip. Many times the transportation to your destination is the most expensive part of the vacation. Why not lower the cost per day by going on a longer trip.
#2 Paid Holidays
Planning vacations around holidays that your work already pays you for and you get off of work for is another great advantage to lengthen your adventure. If you have Independence Day Thursday, July 4th, 2019 off and you have Saturdays and Sundays off, then maximize your time off by starting on Saturday, June 29th and returning Sunday, July 7th. That is a 9-day vacation with using 4 vacation days.
#3 Family and Friends
Do you have other family members or friends that would be vacationing with you? Have them help in the planning family reunions, girlfriend getaways, a hiking trip, etc.
#4 Protecting Blocked Days
Blocking your days off on your calendar and then guarding them is very important. Those days are planned for you to relax and rejuvenate. Don’t let them get canceled.
#5 Share Your Plans
Plan to attend archery camp for adults.
Let others hold you accountable. Also, if you have a Boss, it is nice to let them know in advance.
