A Guide To Surviving Family Vacations
Vacations are a great way to relax and rediscover oneself whenever life gets overwhelmingly tiring. Remember that stress is a silent killer and if you live your life doing the same thing every day focusing on work, not only will it affect your physical and mental health, it will also negatively affect the relationships that you have with people, especially your family.
Going on a family vacation will not only allow you to have some fun and see new places, you’ll also be making great new memories with your family. But if you think that your kids are too much for you to handle and that you might not survive the trip, here is how you can:
- Make time for yourself. Remember, the point of this vacation is to have fun and relax and you won’t be able to do that if you are always running after your kids. What you should do is to get that sun block lotion, apply it to your skin and lay down under the sun. If you fear for your children then you can just have them engage in children’s activity arranged by the hotel or resort.
- Depart early. There can be nothing more stressful than getting left behind by the plane. Leaving the house can be so hard to accomplish if you have children so if you don’t want to experience travel woes, it would be best to leave the house early. When you have a 10 am flight, go to the airport three or two hours early so that you don’t miss boarding the plane. Doing so would help you arrive on time at your Krabi accommodation.
- Acknowledge your children’s limits. Know how impatient your kids can be, when they’ll be hungry, when they’ll get tired and when they have to sleep so that you can prepare for that. Remember, you too have your own limits and you all need to get the right amount of sleep and food.
- Take pictures and record videos. Documenting happy memories are a part of family vacations. People love looking back, watch old recordings and look at happy photos. So if you are going on a family vacation, make sure to take lots and lots pictures and videos for you to look back on in the coming years.
