Staycation vs Vacation: Fun Can Happen Anywhere

Summertime is fast approaching, and for many, it’s time to start making vacation plans. Sadly, during the past year, travel has been off the table for a lot of people. The good news is that if you do end up traveling elsewhere, your FAB CBD supply is super portable and easy to take along with you.

Going Somewhere New or Somewhere Known: It's Experience Over Destination

While it’s easy to think that the only way to have a relaxing vacation is to go somewhere distant and tropical, the truth is that taking a “staycation” can be just as relaxing and rejuvenating. For starters, typical vacations can be costly and time consuming to plan. When you take a staycation, however, the possibilities are endless and affordable.

For those who might not know, a staycation is a vacation spent at home or at a location close to home. To some, taking a staycation might seem boring or uneventful, but in reality, there are lots of fun and interesting things to do. Staycations are fantastic because they are kind to your wallet, don’t require any extensive travel time or accommodations, and they allow you to feel rejuvenated and refreshed while staying close to home. Moreover, staycations help to support your local small businesses, which helps your local economy thrive in the long-run.

Why Staycations are Innovative and Exciting

Staycations are a wonderful way to spend quality time with your family, your pets, and your friends and loved ones. Some great ideas for fun staycations are campouts at home, staying at a local bed and breakfast, or taking day trips to local parks, beaches, or historical destinations. The options are truly infinite when you make it a point to stay at or close to home. Some fun ideas for staycations are:
  • Camping out in your own backyard.
  • Throwing a fun family barbecue or picnic.
  • Renting a cabin close to home in the woods to explore nature. (This is perfect for any season.)
  • Staying at a local hotel so that you can fully explore your city.
  • Enjoying a spa day with that special someone at a nearby spa or wellness center.
  • Taking a day trip to a museum, historical monument, or nature preserve.

Vacations are Always Fun Too

If staycations aren’t your thing, then you can always take a traditional vacation. Now with more locations opening up, there are better options for getaways than there were many months ago. In light of today’s pandemic, however, it might be best to keep things simple and within the United States.

Vacations can be whatever you dream for them to be. For example, if you love nature, then why not consider a trip to the country to do some horseback riding, hiking, cave spelunking, or bird watching? If rest and relaxation are your thing, then maybe a spa getaway to a tranquil or spiritual location will do the trick. Remember, even though vacations are fun and exciting, there are still many obstacles you’ll have to tackle before you can reach your ultimate destination. Some things that are a must before leaving home are booking your hotel, booking the actual venue that you will go to for your activity, purchasing plane tickets, making arrangements for your home and/or your pets, and figuring out what you will need to pack and what you will need to bring along with you so that you can stay on your health regimen.

Whether Traveling Far or Staying Close, Pack Light & Keep it Compact

Taking day trips on your staycation or traveling somewhere for your vacation can be tricky if you have to worry about bringing along bags of supplements and jars of protein powders along with heavy suitcases or day bags that are stuffed to the brim. The good news is that there are a lot of products out there that are designed to specifically help you travel light and compact. Indeed, there are many innovative backpacks, packing cubes, TSA-friendly toiletries sets, dry shampoos, tiny soap samplers, mini hairstyling tools, and more to help you keep it light and tight whether you venture afar or keep it close to home. Your health supplements should be no exception.

It’s Time to Try Something New

It’s easy to stay stuck in the same routines and patterns. Staycations and vacations are all about trying something new and having a good time while doing it. If you always opt to take vacations, then why not try taking a staycation this year? You might be surprised at what you can do, how great you’ll feel, and what you can accomplish simply by staying close to home.

Some of the many benefits of staycations are:
  • Staycations can be taken with very little notice or no notice at all.
  • You don’t have to pre-book any of your activities like you would on traditional vacations.
  • Staycations can be taken any time throughout the year, no matter what the season is.
  • Unless you are staying at a hotel or a bed and breakfast, staycations do not require you to put down any money in advance.
  • You can do whatever you dream up.
  • You don’t have to leave your four-legged friends behind in a kennel or with a pet sitter.
  • There’s very little to no packing required.
  • You can visit all of your favorite local places.
  • You can try new places or things in your city or town.

Speaking of Trying New Things…

Staycations and vacations are the perfect excuse to try new things! If you’ve never tried CBD before, now is the perfect time to do so. Better yet, if CBD is part of your regular regimen, then why not try some new CBD products or some new flavors in some of the products that you regularly use? For example, if you really love FAB CBD’s full-spectrum CBD oil in vanilla, why not change things up and try mint, berry, or citrus? Or, if you usually take the “Anytime” CBD Chews, staycation time is the perfect opportunity to give the PM “Nighttime” Chews a try.

Staycation or Vacation: Make the Most of Your Experience

Staycations and vacations can be fun, exciting, and a great way to connect closer to friends, family, and loved ones, or to meet new friends. Remember, it doesn’t matter so much what you did on your time off. What matters most is that you had fun and made memories while you were on your staycation or vacation. Just like with everything else in life, it’s all about trying new things, getting out of your comfort zone, and maybe gaining a new perspective on your life.
