1. Plan ahead: Treat your staycation like any other vacation and plan it in advance. Clean the house, get groceries, set a budget, prepare what you need so you’re not spending your time off on your To-Do List. Create an itinerary with activities you want to do and places you want to visit.

2. Think like a tourist: Explore your city or town by visiting local attractions, museums, parks, and historical sites you may have overlooked merely because they’re nestled in your own backyard. Try a new restaurant take a walking tour, or try something new like the NCC River House.

3. Have a relaxation day: Dedicate a day to pure relaxation. Sleep in, take a long bath, read a book, or binge-watch your favorite TV shows or movies. It's your time to unwind and rejuvenate.

4. Read books or watch movies that take you somewhere you want to go: Where would you like to vacation? Read a book or watch a movie that give you a feel for that place. This will leave you feeling inspired and with new perspective. 

5. Capture the moments: Take photos and keep a journal of your staycation activities. It will help you cherish the memories and make the staycation feel more special. You’d do it for a regular vacation anyway!
