Going on vacation can be stressful for the whole family. Many factors can make it difficult, such as boredom or planning an excess of activities. Try these five strategies to make your vacation more fun and less stressful.

Consider Home Automation

You’ll be more likely to have a worry-free vacation if you take care of things at home before you leave. Ask someone at work to handle any emergencies you would normally take care of. Consider installing a home automation system to allow you to monitor and control your house while you’re away.

Use Stress-Reducing Techniques

Regardless of what you do, there will be some level of stress on your family vacation. When faced with these unavoidable, stressful situations, try some simple yoga poses recommended for relaxation. There are also a number of deep breathing exercises that are proven to reduce stress. Early morning meditation can also be a good way to start your day off right and prepare yourself for the high-stress situations you might face.

Minimize Technology Use

Overusing technology can make a vacation less meaningful. It can negatively affect your vision and sleep, among other things. Pay more attention to the trip and less on social media and gaming by turning off devices whenever possible. Try not to bring along devices that take up valuable time which could be spent relaxing or having meaningful family experiences.

Keep Children Occupied

When kids get bored, they tend to become restless and irritable. Be sure to bring a favorite book and other activities on your trip as a way to keep them occupied and content. Snacks are also useful for keeping children happy.

Don't Overplan

Packing too many activities into one day can cause stress. Instead, try choosing fewer, more meaningful things to do. Pay attention to how everyone is affected by time in the sun and excess walking and be sure to include everyone in the planning process.

Travel By Bus

Chartering a bus or joining an already planned group tour is perhaps the best way for a family to travel. It allows you to enjoy the sites along the way, sleep as you travel, talk, and play games with each other. Essentially, it removes some of the most stressful parts of traveling with large groups and kids. So, if you’re planning a family vacation, consider using a motorcoach.
