Take a deep breath, it'll be OK.
"How many times have I looked back at a place I haven't visited in 10 years? I think this is a great time for people who are used to traveling to go back to your hard drive ... take some time to revel in the memories," Nabongo said. "I think because we're constantly planning the next trip, we never get to reminisce about what was so great about so many trips that we've already had, whether it's two months ago, two years ago or 12 years ago."



Even if you can’t make the time right now for an official “Staycation” you can implement some of these strategies to inlcud emore YOU time into your busy on-the-go schedule. We are inspired by these 3 tips from Jessica Sager:

1.Have weekly rituals.
There’s a reason Taco Tuesday is so popular: It makes people happy! Whether it’s food- or self-care- related (Sleep In Sundays, for example), having weekly rituals can give you something to look forward to all summer, as well as help you keep track of time, which, let’s be honest, hasn’t been too easy in the age of coronavirus.
2.Sleep in
3.Wake up really early.
"We know, you’re probably like, 'But this is supposed to be like a vacation!' We’re not suggesting waking up at 5 a.m. to do work, be it for your job, around the house or otherwise — instead, waking up early can give you a few precious minutes or hours to yourself that you may not otherwise have. How you spend that time, whether it’s reading a book you’ve had lying around, really savoring your coffee, going for a run or just sitting in stillness, is up to you."
