A vacation is something that everybody needs in their life. Many people, when they hear of the word vacation, think of a lot of money and a big, planned out trip that may last a week or more. However, this is just a general stereotype of a typical vacation. Most people take one or two vacations a year, but what if you took twelve? That seems like a lot, but in fact, it may cost less to do twelve than to do one or two. Twelve vacations a year will keep life interesting and make things a lot less stressful. Here are a few ideas on taking twelve vacations a year.
1) Figure out what you spend in a year on your one or two vacations and divide that number by twelve. For example, if you spend nine hundred and sixty dollars a year on vacations, then you have eighty dollars for each month. If you take two vacations and spend twelve hundred on each, then you have two hundred dollars for each month. Whatever the amount comes out to be each month, plan a mini-vacation for one or two days and go away. You may think where you can go for a little amount of money, but the trips do not have to be overnight. They can be local or far away, but getting away and having something to look forward to makes life a lot more interesting. Twelve vacations could be two days a month times twelve, which give you twenty four vacation days for the year. Trips can include the zoo, a mall in another city, or traveling to another state and visiting for two days. If you spend less than what you had for that month, add it to the next month.
2) The important thing to remember are the twelve vacations a year may not be something mind blowing, but just the fact there is something scheduled outside of the norm will give every family member something to look forward to. Always keeping something in front of you to look forward to you will make every day that much more enjoyable.
3) Twelve vacations a year allow the family even more time together. These vacations should be planned well and at the same time, once they are scheduled, nothing should interfere with the vacation.
Having twelve vacations a year does not need to interfere with your work schedule because they can be taken on a weekend. This method is just another tool to make life more enjoyable.
