A vacation is a chance to escape your day-to-day life. But for those of us with voracious appetites for all sorts of entertainment, a vacation can also be a chance to indulge in some intense binging.
So, why not turn your next vacation into a Chi-Cation; a chance for you to fill your days and nights with nonstop binging. With the right balance and a few helpful tips, you can enjoy your vacation and your entertainment to the fullest.
First, start by planning your entertainment for the week. Many streaming services have created content lists for each day of the week, allowing you to prepare in advance. Jot down some shows and movies you’d like to watch, and set yourself a goal of reaching the end of the list. Staying organized up front will ensure that you don’t waste any valuable vacation time trying to decide what to watch.
Next, plan your snacks. You don’t want to be in the middle of your favorite show and have to reach for an empty bag of chips. Stock up on your favorite snacks and drinks in advance to keep you going during your binges. Consider making your own snacks to add a little variety and excitement to the proceedings.
For added structure to your binging, consider assigning a type of entertainment to each day. One day can be devoted to movies, another to television, and a third to reading – whatever tickles your fancy.
Some vacationers also like to binge with a companion. It’s more fun to watch a show or movie with someone, and it can also help you stay focused and on track for reaching your binging goals.
When you’re ready to venture away from the comforts of your vacation rental, visit an amusement park or another local attraction. It’s easy to forget about some of the fun activities available close to your vacation spot. From roller coasters to mini-golf courses, amusement parks have plenty of activities that can provide an enjoyable break between rounds of binging.
Finally, take the opportunity to explore some new forms of entertainment. Chances are, there are some shows or movies that you haven’t seen yet. Get introduced to a new genre or author by doing a bit of research beforehand, and you may find something new to add to your Chi-Cation binging.
A Chi-Cation is the perfect way to mix relaxation and entertainment on your next vacation. With some careful planning and some fun diversions, you can combine a cheerful binge-fest with the unique activities and attractions of your destination. So, what are you waiting for? Start planning and let the binging begin.
