Ah summer, wasn’t it fun? Now, the majority of us are preparing ourselves for a long and chilly few months, before the return of spring, when the good times come back. However, if you’re not ready to be without your fill of sunshine for that long, then it’s important to remember that, well, summer still exists somewhere! It always does. So why not book yourself a trip to somewhere further south, where the weather will be oh so fine? Below, we take a look at a few tips for getting yourself ready.

Prep that Body
We work hard to look the part during spring and summer, because we’re visiting the beach and all-around out and about more frequently. When fall comes, we go into comfort eating mode, we’re more sedentary — and with good reason, since we don’t expect to be showing too much skin over the coming months. But that’ll of course change if you’re visiting a warm spot. In the weeks and months leading up to your trip, make sure that you’re hitting the gym with the same intensity you did when it was springtime. You’ll be thankful you did when you visit the beach!
We all know how fun it can be to get out our bank card and go shopping in spring. We buy all those lovely new outfits that’ll be by our side during the warm summer months! Now that we’ve got another short stint in summer ahead, we have the very same opportunity. Get yourself pumped for your trip by investing in a few new items of clothing. Not only is it extra satisfying buying summer clothes when there’s a chill in the air, but you’ll also benefit from great out of season discounts. It’s a win-win-win situation.
And don’t just stop at new outfits, either. One of the fun things about going on a trip is that you’re able to be a little more daring with the outfits that you wear. So take a look at adding some accessories when it comes to packing. Hats, necklaces, sunglasses, and even things like diamond belly jewelry can all help to take your look to the next level. You’re going to have some months of cloudy, cold weather when you return, so make sure that you’re pushing the boat out a little!
Build up the Energy
You’re able to just sit on the couch and watch Netflix when fall comes. No, you’re just not allowed to — it’s encouraged. But this will mean a dip of energy, and this might mean that you’re not quite ready to throw yourself into all the fun that your vacation will bring. As such, it’s important that you’re staying somewhat active in the run up to your trip, so that you’re ready to be up and active, and explore all the sights. There’ll be time to rest and settle into hibernation mode after you’ve returned back to your normal life. Your winter vacation will not be the time!
