When I went in for my staycation at Movenpick Bur Dubai, I was mostly excited about staying at a hotel for a couple of days because, I mean, hotel life is better than all life (of course). But once I came back home, I realized everything else that was so awesome about it and therefore, today’s post.
10. Have a conversation. Regardless of who you’re going with – your partner, kids, best friend, parent – just sit and have some pointless conversation over tea or coffee. I’m always thinking about things I’ll probably never end up doing (there’s always an imaginary event happening in my head) but I enjoy talking about them anyway. Talk about places you’d love to travel to, what would you do if you suddenly had a million dollars, things you want to do for fun over the next few months – stuff you might not find the spirit or energy for in day to day life.
Also, if you can’t manage a hotel, do it at home. You’ll have to work extra hard at mentally separating yourself from your usual context, but I don’t like saying impossible to anything, so you can make it work. But if you can save up for a quick getaway to a hotel in your own city, that’s obviously the best.
Average food cost (4 meals): AED 1500 (if you dine at the hotel)
Average total cost: AED 2500 (could be less if you use an offer)
– Clean your house before you leave for the hotel so when you come back, you don’t hate your life (dirty dishes have the power to induce mood disorders).
