It’s Spring Break! Time to take a break, relax, and possibly travel to a great (hopefully beach inspired) location. But we all feel the same way when we get home – why can’t my home be more like a hotel? Sure, we can’t all afford a live-in maid. But here are some tips to keep that hotel “spirit” alive once you return.
DO Turn off the TV.
It’s one of the first things we usually do when we come home – turn on the TV. But when on vacation, who has time for boring programming when there’s tons of fun vacation activities to partake in? Next time you come home, forget the TV and opt for soft music instead. You’ll be surprised at how much quicker you’ll wind down from your busy day!
DON’T Forget to make your bed!
One of the nice things about a hotel stay, is your bed is always made for you when you get back. Again, I know the live-in maid would be perfect for this, but if you can’t afford that option, simply take those few extra minutes in the morning and be rewarded later that evening. Maybe you can train the dog (or the kids for that matter) to turn down the bed and put a mint on your pillow? 🙂
Hotel rooms are always clean and clutter free. Clutter free = stress free. So get rid of that useless junk that’s been piling up!
DON’T Forget about the hotel bathroom.
Another fun surprise about any hotel stay are the travel toiletries. We all love trying new things, so why not stock up on some travel size items at your favorite bath shop next time they’re on sale? Opt for scents that you might not normally use – and bring yourself back to that awesome vacation!
