A Minimalist Approach To Vacationing

Minimalist Approach To Vacationing

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I get back from vacation I am exhausted. While I had an excellent time, I don’t always achieve my goal of relaxation. This is why many travelers are taking a minimalist approach to vacationing.

Packing Light

Instead of breaking the bank on a ton of vacation-only clothes, invest in only what you will need for the weather or planned excursions—with the goal of mixing and matching as much as you can. As a bonus, you will be less weighed down with your stuff.

A Minimal Schedule

Avoid the temptation to fill every second of your schedule. Yes, plan some activities—but leave ample time for R&R, wandering, and going with the flow.

Non-Traditional Accommodations

Remember, minimalism is not about deprivation—it’s about intention. When it comes to your accommodations, consider something other than your run of the mill hotel:

  • A cozy cabin
  • A boutique hotel
  • An Airbnb
  • A hostel
  • House swap
  • Innovative green accommodations
  • Renting an RV
  • Renting a tiny house
  • A spa or health resort

There is certainly a time and a place for the pack-it-all-in vacation, but taking a minimalist approach to vacation will have you returning home feeling rested, relaxed, and recharged!
