Vacations are more than simply a fun jaunt in a new city. Often, they’re a much needed rest in order to promote wellness and return to your life feeling refreshed. The day-to-day grind can drag you down, even if you love your job, your family, and the life you live. A La Jolla vacation gives you a change of scene, a chance to relax and put aside your responsibilities, and ultimately a chance to rest both physically and emotionally. Want to get the most out of your relaxation in this vacation? Here are a few tips:
Find the Right Destination
If you’re looking for R&R, you won’t find it in the middle of a city, listening to traffic while you’re trying to sleep and being stuck in traffic the next day. A laid back destination will offer the right amount of relaxation, but if it’s too lazy, it might lead to a boring vacation. The benefit of La Jolla is that it’s small, laid back, and friendly, with beautiful beaches, fun boutiques and restaurants; but it’s also just a short drive from San Diego proper, with even more museums, beaches, and activities to enjoy. It’s the best of both worlds!
Make an Itinerary
Remember, you don’t have to do everything on your vacation. In fact, trying to get in every museum, every restaurant, every beach, every bar or club, will quickly lead to being burnt out and feeling as though you missed out on the best parts. Before you leave for your vacation, go through the list of things you want to do and prioritize. At the top of the list should be the things you can’t wait to do, the things if missed will make the whole trip feel like a bust. At the bottom should be the attractions you’d like to see, but your happiness doesn’t depend on it. Never check out an attraction just because “it’s the thing to do.” Make sure you truly look forward to everything on your list and then start from the top.
Have Snacks Ready
Vacations often involve a lot of exploration. Whether you’re going from beach to beach, shop to shop, museum to museum, or just walking the streets, you can build up quite an appetite. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of dining experiences to explore throughout La Jolla, from five star restaurants to casual lunches by the beach. But it’s a good idea to have snacks ready to stave off hunger and the irritation that can come with it. Trail mix, energy bars, a favorite candy, or energy balls are both easy to eat and easy to travel with.
Stick to (Some) of Your Rituals
A vacation is meant to be a break from the norm, but if you have daily rituals that bring you comfort and help you to feel more emotionally and mentally refreshed, you should stick to those rituals. If you like to do yoga in the morning, bring your yoga mat. Morning devotions or a favorite book to read before bed? Make sure you bring those along. If the ritual is restful and you feel that you’ll miss it while you’re gone, bring it with you.
