What’s the one thing that you hate the most on a vacation?
Bad food, sweltering hot weather, and last minute itinerary changes sure make the list of my answers.
But nothing really beats those monstrosities like being stuck inside of a hotel room for no reason.
Even after all the planning that you put into your vacation and all the money you paid to see the sights, being stuck inside the four walls of your hotel room is the last thing that you’d want on your vacation.
And if you’re upset just thinking about it, just imagine how it’d be if the situation ever becomes a reality (it won’t be fun, I can tell you that much).
Thankfully, we’ve got a few tips that could turn that time of forced immobility to a period of relaxation for you. By following these suggestions, you could make sure that your stay in the hotel will be as enjoyable as possible.
It is better to make sure to plan for the worst and know how to deal with it than hitting an unfortunate scenario and sulking right?
Dabble into Virtual Casino Visits
Who said that staying within your room means you can’t have fun? Sure, you may not be able to visit the sights you wanted due to any unforeseen event, but that’s not stopping you from virtually exploring the world around you, is it?
If you have a computer or even your cellphone with you, then you can wave the boredom away by playing immersive and reality based games such as those available at a live casino online. These sites usually give you the feeling of being in an actual casino without even having to change out of your pajamas.
By delving into these options, you could have a surefire way to feel that you are already out and about, which is exactly how you’d want to feel during this time.
Enjoy Dark Humor? Find Some on Netflix
As long as you are not visiting a potential desert during your vacation, chances are that wherever you might be, you’d have entertainment options such as Netflix at your disposal.
Since you’d already be feeling down and out, watching a drama movie or an intense episode of House of Cards may not be a good idea. My suggestion? Find something with a dark and twisted sense of humor that’d make you laugh at your own situation. If you have an appreciation for the humorous mentions of macabre and want to make Edgar Allen Poe proud, then give shows like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina a try (here’s why the Satanic Temple is suing the show). Otherwise, for silly fun, watch something like Big Mouth.
You might be in a forced curfew but who says that you have to be miserable while you are in it? Enjoy the moment.
If You Have it Within the Budget, Order Some Room Service
Provided that you are not going to starve yourself after spending luxuriously on a single meal, and that your hotel does not serve things like these delicacies at the Disgusting Food Museum, you could order room service to enjoy a buffet right within your den of solitude.
This would be particularly enjoyable if you enjoy the cuisine of the place you are visiting, or if you just happen to be a foodie to whom gastronomical offerings bring great joy.
Make sure to order things that have a “feel good” or “treat yourself” vibe to them according to your food preferences. You want to make sure that you are altering mood your mood for the better, keep your mood elevated and everything will be that much better.
If You Can’t Control the Situation, There’s No Good Fretting About It
Things go wrong life. Deal with it. It is part of the adulting phase of our lives. Stuck in a hotel room because of the bad weather, roadblocks or other unforeseen event? It happens. With tips such as the ones provided above, you just might be able to make the most of a negative experience and turn into a positive one.
Try to live in the moment and make the most out of it, as you may just be laughing on your return when remembering your vacation downtime and all of the activities you did to overcome this time of excruciation.
