Saving your leave for later? Social media holiday pics driving you mad? Sometimes your holiday has to be put on hold, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still experience the vibe! Apply these small things to your everyday life and get ready to feel like you’re on a full-scale vacation.
Plan a Day Trip
Take a day to explore your immediate surroundings or a trendy new neighbourhood nearby. Visit a farmstall, a brewery or scenic restaurant a short drive out of town and get whisked away from everyday life.
Organise a Picnic
Pack a few of your favourite snacks, grab a blanket and hit the road for a mini-break with your loved ones. An hour or two in nature can help you relax in a fresh environment, and make for a few insta-worthy moments!
Make Ice Lollies
Nothing says summer holiday like some delicious ice cold treats! Get the kids in the kitchen and serve up summertime goodness by trying out an easy home-made recipe.
Take a Break from Technology
Even if it’s just for one day, switch off all of your electronics and spend some quality time with your loved ones, a good book or favourite hobby. Try something social like:
- Outdoor ball games
Taste a little Culture
Ditch the chicken mayo and try something a little more adventurous. From mieliepap to Malay curry, choose cultural foods that you haven’t tried before to add some spice to your Sunday dinner or lunch box.
Attend a Local Event or Festival
South Africans hardly need an excuse to party. Attend a local day event or festival to really get your holiday vibe going! Support local music, enter a sporting event, or visit the theater for a day of fun and relaxation.
