Decide on a mutual trip goal: Whether it’s relaxing on the beach, exploring a new destination, or learning a new skill, the purpose of a vacation can take many different forms. Agreeing on a mutual trip goal before leaving ensures that everybody’s on the same page.
Find meaningful time with your spouse: Brief moments of alone time with your partner or spouse can help the trip as a whole feel more therapeutic. Choosing a family-friendly resort or a cruise with a kids club is one way to work in couples time, and tiring the kids out during the day can mean alone time—or even a date night—later in the evening.
Limit screen time: Deciding as a family to limit screen time on vacation will ensure everyone is present and engaged during the trip. Adults should tell their Facebook friends they’ll share photos when they return, and kids’ electronics should be limited to long flights or car rides. If the kids are antsy during down time on vacation, encourage them to write or draw in a travel journal.
