4 Signs You Need to Start Planning a Winter Getaway

Here in Minnesota, the cold weather is setting in, the days are getting shorter (less than 10 hours of daylight right now!), and we’re all wishing back the warm sunshine and lazy summer days.

With that being said, it’s high time to start planning a winter getaway!

In fact, one of the best remedies to the winter blues (in my opinion) is to have a trip on your calendar you can look forward to!

Here are four signs it’s definitely time to start planning a winter getaway:

You’re dreading the change in weather

It’s cozy pumpkin spice season, but if you’re dreading the thought of the winter getting closer, and the sunshine getting more elusive, now is the time to get a winter getaway on the calendar that you can start looking forward to.

The cold gets you down

If you’re not a fan of the lack of sunshine and cold weather isn't something you look forward to, you’re not alone. The good news is a little getaway somewhere warm and sunny can be just the thing to boost your mood, energy, and outlook during the cold season.

You need to shake up your routine

Winter often means more time indoors and a slower pace of life. If you’re looking to shake things up and bring a little more spontaneity and excitement into your winter days, a vacation is just the thing.

You haven’t gotten away in forever

If you haven’t had a vacation in a long time, winter can put a huge spotlight on the fact that you haven’t been away in a while. But a vacation can do wonders for your health, sense of well-being, and productivity. If all you can think about is an airplane and a sandy beach, it’s time to start planning that winter getaway!
