Practical Ways to Recharge While on Your Beach Vacation

  • Posted on

Going on a beach vacation is a great way to relax and recharge. The sound of the waves, the warm sun, and the soft sand are all perfect ingredients for a stress-free vacation. But sometimes, it can be hard to fully unwind and immerse yourself in the beauty of your surroundings.

Here are some ideas on how to truly relax and recharge on your beach vacation:


Unplug from Technology

Being constantly surrounded by screens, devices, and notifications can make it difficult to disconnect and relax. Try to limit your technology use during your beach vacation. Put your phone on "Do Not Disturb" mode, avoid scrolling through social media or checking your email, and keep TV watching to a purposeful minimum. Instead, sit outside in the sunshine, take a walk on the beach, enjoy a lounge by the pool, or dip in the hot tub. 


Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is all about being fully present and engaged. When was the last time you took a few minutes to simply sit? Leave the phones behind and find a location that welcomes peace. Notice the sound of the waves, the feeling of the sun on your skin, and the smell of the ocean. Even if just for a few minutes, this simple practice of just being can help you feel more relaxed and centered the rest of your trip.


Read a Book

Okay, so you can not do nothing the entire trip! But don’t be so quick to pick up a device. There's nothing like getting lost in a good book while lounging on the beach. Reading can help reduce stress and improve overall well-being. Choose a book that you've been meaning to read for a while, or pick up a new one that catches your eye.


Even if you forgot to pack your book, our beach homes have several you can borrow. And look for family-friendly boardgames too!


Take a Nap

The word “nap” is almost taboo in today’s fast-paced world. Yet sometimes, the simplest way to relax is to simply catch up on your sleep. Find a comfortable spot on the beach, the couch in the beach rental home, or a lounger by the pool, and close your eyes for a little while. You'll likely wake up feeling refreshed and energized.

Get Active

While physically relaxing is important, it's also healthy for your mind to move your body. Even a leisurely walk in the neighborhood or along the beach is beneficial. For a little more rigorous activity, go for a swim or try kayaking. These activities can help you feel more energized and refreshed.
