These 5 Things Will Help You Get the Most Out of Your Vacation

Ahh, is there anything better than taking a vacation? Although most of us say we could use one at any time of year, lots of us aren't putting our vacation time to good use. But taking a trip can have a major positive impact on our overall health and well-being. In order to make the most out of your time at your beachfront condo rental here in Sanibel Island, be sure to follow this list. These five things will allow you to make your getaway more memorable, relaxing, and fun.

  1. Savor the excitement

    Although 53% of employed American adults say they come back from a vacation feeling refreshed, a 2010 study found that our happiness levels tend to drop shortly after returning home. Further, the same study found that most people experienced a significant happiness boost while planning their trip. This suggests that the anticipation of the trip, rather than the trip itself, has a more powerful impact on our mood. So not only will planning your weekly vacation rentals in advance allow you to get a better rate and better selection, but it will also give you more of a chance to look forward to your getaway. That excitement can be just as good for you as the actual trip!

  2. Do your research

    Generally speaking, you want to be prepared for your trip. Doing research shouldn't feel like work -- it should be fun! You can plan out the must-dos for your vacation and decide where you'd most like to eat. For vacation rentals in Sanibel Island, our visitors always want to make time for the beach; swimming and sun time are always at the top of the list, but there are also little-known treasures for you to discover here on the island. Read reviews, inquire with friends, or feel free to ask us about sights we'd recommend.

  3. Don't over-schedule

    Although planning is a good thing, don't over-schedule yourself! Give yourself ample time to be spontaneous and just enjoy yourself. Scheduling activities down to the minute can put a real damper on your RandR. Highlight what's on the top of your to-do list, but don't be afraid to veer a bit off schedule. That unscheduled time may just be the best part of your trip!

  4. Take everything in

    Before snapping that shot of the beautiful window view, the picturesque sunset, or that awesome shell you found, take the time to appreciate the experience as it's happening. Although photos are great for looking back on your trip, you don't want to miss something because you were holding up your iPhone in another direction. Documenting your vacation for friends back home will never be as fun as actually living the experience. Our vacation condos for rent allow you to be right where the action is -- steps away from the beach -- so you'll have plenty of time to both live and document your trip.

  5. Connect with others

    Your Sanibel Island vacation rental provides the perfect opportunity to connect with friends and family on your trip. It also means you can disconnect from technological devices and social media when you want to. Don't be burdened by work or by Facebook. Instead, cherish this time you have with the others on your trip. Make connections with new people and strengthen bonds with those who came along with you. That's the best way to remember your trip for years to come.
