Post-Covid Vacation Activities to Bust Stress

Calling anything ‘post-covid’ at this stage might be a little premature- but for the most part, life is beginning to return to normal. Lockdowns have ended in many places all over the world, people are being told they no longer need to work from home, and travel has started up again meaning many of us can indulge in a much needed vacation. The past two years have presented challenges to all of us in some way or another, so now, jetting off and taking a break is probably just what the doctor ordered. If you’re after a peaceful break, it most definitely doesn’t have to be a boring one and there’s plenty more you can do aside from sit on a sun lounger and top up your tan around the pool all day (although if you want to do that, that’s fine too!) If you’re looking to relax while still having fun then here are some ideas. 


Relaxing sports

Sports are a great way to get active and get outdoors, but don’t need to mean something sweaty and high energy! You could go to a golf course and enjoy a relaxed game in the beautiful sunshine. Alternatively you could hire some equipment and go inshore fishing. You could go for a bike ride on an easy route, there are apps which allow you to plan your ride and check that the terrain isn’t too challenging. Or you could indulge in some yoga on the beach, either alone or as part of a group.


Spa day

It doesn’t get much more relaxing than a day at the spa. From pampering beauty treatments to massages, lounging by the pool in the sauna and hot tub you’ll come out feeling brand new. We all carry so much tension in our muscles without realizing, an occasional treat for the body like this helps you to relax, unwind and can make you feel better mentally as well as physically. 



This could be sailing and taking in the sea air, or exploring inland canals and waterways on a barge. Either way, getting out onto a body of water can be good for the soul. It gives you the chance to sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds at a relaxed pace, in a nicer environment than sitting on typical types of transport. 



Finally, eating delicious food and drinking tasty drinks is a must while you’re away. Not only is it a chance to treat yourself but by sampling the cuisine you get a look into the culture of a place and can discover the types of ingredients and cooking methods that the place you’re in uses. Book yourself into some restaurants, shop at markets and have a go at cooking yourself where you’re staying, call into the independent cafes, bakeries and check out food stalls.


Where’s the first place you will be, or have you already travelled to since restrictions eased?
