Move Over Vacation, HELLO STAYCATION!
Posted by Samantha Lawson
Have some spare holiday at work you haven’t booked off yet? With everything that’s going on, getting away has obviously become a little bit more difficult. But your world hasn’t stopped turning, so you still deserve that time off.
We’re going to tell you how to ditch that fancy vacation and have your very own STAYCATION at home, with some tips to make your time at home feel like you’re living on a tropical island (without the cost!). It’ll be LOTS of fun, we promise!
Emails OFF, Holiday ON!
The first rule of Staycation is to put yourself in the holiday mindset; you may be at home… but you’re not. Notifications off… check! out of office email activated...check! you know the drill. You wouldn’t read your emails on a sandy beach abroad, so why should you on your holiday at home?
Try Something NEW
One of the best things about going on holiday is that you get to experience entirely new things, so why not try something different? Mix things up to make it feel like you’ve been transported to somewhere new and exciting.
This website allows you to tune into music playlists from around the world. Take a trip to countless countries and see what the locals love to dance to! Back it up with some YouTube dance lessons...go crazy! Another great idea is to try some adventurous new dishes. This recipe allows you to explore every continent's best cuisine in a three-course meal. DELICIOUS!
After that, explore a famous tourist attraction. Take a virtual tour of the GORGEOUS Sistine Chapel in Rome or the breathtaking Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Be your own tour guide and explore the world from the comfort of your living room!
And bring us along with you! Grab your Wellbeing Pod and pop in a Feel Refreshed Essential Oil Blend to compliment the holiday vibes. It’s fragranced with the exotic aromas of Sicilian lemon and fresh basil.

Turn Your Own Bathroom Into A Spa
We all love a good spa day, don’t we? Well, at NEOM, we’ve got all the goodies that will help you get that PERFECT pampering experience at home.
First up, draw a nice hot bath. Whilst your bath is running, light a Real Luxury Intensive Skin Treatment Candle (more on that later…). This will fill your bathroom with the relaxing fragrances of jasmine and Brazillian rosewood and will create the perfect environment to unwind and de-stress.
Before you hop in, pour in some Real Luxury Bath Foam. The softening marshmallow and coconut oil, along with the soothing aloe and sweet almond oil, will allow you to comfortably slip into a watery bliss. As part of our Scent to De-Stress range, this bath foam is infused with the calming scents of lavender and 24 of the purest possible essential oils. 24! Yep, that’s right.
When you get out, revitalise your skin by applying some body butter or body oil. To really make it feel like you’re getting an extra special spa treatment...remember that Real Luxury Intensive Skin Treatment Candle we mentioned earlier? Now that the wax has melted, blow out the candle and drizzle the precious oils of almond, baobab and jojoba all over your body. Massage deeply to intensively nourish and hydrate the skin. Hmm, we could get used to the idea of staycations!
