Take a Vacation that Actually Feels Like a Vacation


Happy June, happy campers! It just so happens that June is National Camping Month. That perfect time of year to get out and enjoy nature to the fullest. While we may have had a rather strange winter, there’s no denying that the beautiful weather here now is calling us all to come and enjoy.

It’s a good idea to heed this call, too, as studies show that people who spend more time in the outdoors are happier, less stressed, and generally healthier. In fact, the Japanese practice of “forest bathing” (which is simply spending time in the forest, soaking in the goodness) has been scientifically proven to boost the immune system, lower blood pressure, and improve overall wellbeing. Of course, it’s easy to get distracted by the not-so-fun parts of nature, so don’t forget your bug spray!

Not much for the outdoors? You can still benefit from a vacation, perhaps to the beach or a nice resort. The trick is to actually make it a relaxing experience, so try not to stuff too many activities into what’s supposed to be a restorative time, whether alone or with family or friends.

Speaking of reducing stress, you may be wondering how to keep your house running and taken care of while you’re gone. Who will walk the dog and feed the parakeet? Who will bring in the mail? Picture this: You’re leaving for a vacation, rushing to get on the road. Perhaps breakfast dishes get left in the sink, or the hallway closet is spilling over from finding a certain pair of sandals or a beach chair at the last minute. When you come home from your vacation, well… it’s all still exactly how you left it.

But now picture this: When you come home from that vacation, the dishes are done and put away. And that hallway closet? It’s not simply put back the way it was. It’s completely rearranged and more organized than it’s been in months – or maybe even years. Your bills are paid, a filing system has been implemented in your office, your refrigerator has been cleaned out, and more. Now that’s the way to come home from a vacation! And we can make it all happen for you. Give us a call today to find out more. 301-787-4010
