Sometimes the thought of planning and booking a family holiday seems exhausting. You think of all the work that has to go into finding the perfect accommodation and location, plus all the packing and preparing that needs to be done before you leave!
It’s easy to consider all that and put ‘family holiday’ in the too hard basket. You could just keep things the way they are – school, work, social engagements and extra-curricular activities that you are shuttling your kids to and from.
The benefits of a family holiday are enormous, for both your children and you. It’s more than just a change of scenery and a few cute photos. Once you get a taste of how great it is, you can be sure that you’ll want to take a family holiday at every opportunity you can.
Here are 5 benefits of a family holiday:
It’s a Learning Experience for Both You and Your Children
Kids young and old will learn new things on a family holiday. From navigating their way through a new place to asking questions about the flora and fauna of the place they are in. They’ll learn that the world is much bigger than their hometown and is full of choice and variety.
You Can Spend Quality Time with Your Family
Your family are often the people you want to be with most and the people you spend very little time with. When you take out the busy schedules, you’re able to spend quality time with each other in a relaxing environment!
Everyone Gets a Chance to Relax
There’s no need to put on a performance when you’re with your family. It’s the perfect time to let your hair down, grow your beard or do something silly. Your family know you best and you don’t need to impress anyone. You can forget about work and your children can let the pressures of school life melt away.
You Can Create Some Lasting Memories
Family holidays are rarely forgotten. As your children become adults they will look back at those times with nostalgia. It will help them to understand the importance of taking their own children on family holidays to give them those experiences too.
You Can do Something Outside Your Comfort Zone
Have you always wanted to skydive? Maybe you want to go whale watching or visit Brisbane’s theme parks or other attractions? Tick things off your bucket list and do something you wouldn’t normally do. It’s great for the kids to step outside their comfort zone too – it teaches them the thrill and enjoyment of experiencing something new and different!
