What’s on your checklist for a relaxing Spring Break?

We are a couple days into Spring Break and at first I was eager for the week off. Because that meant no 5:30 wake up calls for the kids, no homework to worry about and the kids would be in Spring Break Camp. Which means on my days off I had the couch and TV to myself to catch up on all my missed shows that are waiting on the PVR. But guess what? I am more exhausted now than I was when school was in session, I think its because we recently turned the clocks ahead an hour, that extra hour I was excited to enjoy lying in my bed. Go Figure! Instead I lost it. Not to mention the “spring like” weather we are having, as I type this post we were suppose to have this great big Snow storm however it diverted itself and we only got a dusting of snow but the cold winds are still a nuisance. To say that I am over this weather is an understatement, watching the evening news coverage seeing families jet setting to someplace warm has me really jealous that I did not do the same. What’s on your checklist for a relaxing Spring Break.

Since I didn’t travel this year I do have a great checklist of things to bring for my next travel excursion with the family and I had to share it with you all too.

A checklist of things to think about ahead of time so you can truly relax and enjoy your well-deserved break:

 

  • A good book:
    • Whether you’re travelling somewhere warm and will have time to read on the beach, or will just finally have some downtime at home, make sure you’re prepared by picking up a good book. There’s no better time to catch up on your favourite author’s new book, or that new best-seller.
  • Your wardrobe choices:
    • If you’re going away, plan your outfits ahead of time so you strike the balance of having what you need without over packing. You need to think about accessories and shoes to complete your looks and being efficient about the clothing you pack leaves room for those important finishing touches. Speaking of finishing touches, you can plan ahead to ensure those killer pumps don’t kill your night because of the pain and discomfort they cause. Scholl’s® For Her™ has several insole and cushioning options to fit different kinds of heels and flats, no matter what part of your foot or shoe is bothering you so you can enjoy the night!
  • Your toiletries:
    • Be just as thoughtful and conscientious about what you pack in your toiletry bag. There’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination to find you’ve forgotten something essential. Take some time to create a checklist of the items you can’t be comfortable without. For starters, a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant and sunscreen. Coppertone has products to keep your whole family covered; from Coppertone ClearlySheer SPF 50 for you, to Coppertone Kids Sunscreen Lotion SPF 60 for the kids, these are great options that provide sunscreens filter UVA and UVB rays to help provide sunburn protection. ClearlySheer feels weightless on your skin, won’t clog pores or cause breakouts, and works great under makeup, while the Kids Lotion is waterproof*, so it’s ideal for water loving kids. If you’re headed to the beach, remember that reapplying is just as important as putting on in the first place, so reapply at least every two hours, or after being in the water.
      (*Retains SPF after 80 minutes of activity in the water or sweating)
  • An eye mask (this is a must for both vacations and staycations!):
    • After months of early wakeups, there’s nothing better than a lazy morning in bed. If you’re sleeping in a room that gets bright in the morning, an eye mask can help block out the light and allow you to catch up on sleep and come back from your vacation feeling refreshed!

    Shoe inserts are definitely something that I have on my spring break and even vacation packing list. We usually do a lot of walking and hiking and the inserts really help with pressure on the feet

    I’m liking these ideas. I do want to be able to relax and being prepared is a big part of that. You definitely can’t forget to take care of your skin when you’re out in the sun.

    Having time to read a good book is what I get the most excited about!

    Gahhh, my husband is on Spring Break this upcoming week and I am at work. I think a good book is crucial for spring break! And LOTS of sunscreen!
