B&B Accommodation in Apollo Bay and How to Get the Most of Your Holiday Time Off

It’s the perpetual dilemma: Do you use all your vacation days at once on an extended trip, or break it up, so there are several small trips throughout the year? It’s not always an easy decision. Some say ten days is the perfect length for a holiday. Supposedly this lets you ease into and out of relaxation and recreation mode. Others will say that taking smaller vacations throughout the year gives you more opportunities to recharge. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference, and no matter how you choose to vacation, there are some things you can do to make the most of the time off you do have. Read on to find out how to maximise your vacation time and holiday accommodation in Apollo Bay that help you do just that.


How to Make the Most of Your Holiday


Whether your holiday is extended or broken up into short ones, there are some things you should always do to help get the most out of the time you have away.


Put the laptop away. Why spend the precious vacation days you get away from work dong exactly what you’re trying to escape? Don’t take work on vacation with you. This defeats the purpose, and it can make those traveling with you anxious and cranky, not to mention the fact that you won’t get a chance to relax. Use the automatic reply setting on your email to let people know you’re away and that you’ll get back to them when you return. No matter how tempted you are, leave the work at work. It will be there waiting for you when you get back.


Stay off your phone and social media. You’re going to miss what you went on vacation for if you’re always staring at your phone. Shut it off or at the very least silence it. Plan to check email or voicemail at the end of the day, and only reply to something if it’s urgent. Forget about social media for the length of your stay. Nothing is hiding in your feed that you must see. You can catch up with friends when you get back. While we’re on the subject, don’t be tempted to post social media pics while in the midst of your vacation. It will only lure you in, and you’ll start paying attention to comments and writing replies when you should be spending time with those you’re sharing your vacation.


Finally, decide ahead of time what your priority is. The purpose of your trip might be to relax and rest at a B&B, or it could be looking for adventure, or possibly a combination. Choose one as the priority so if you’re in a situation where you need to choose rest or excitement, the decision has already been made.
