- Creating family memories matters
If most of us think back to some of the happiest memories from our own childhood, chances are that at least some of them involve a beach, or a caravan, or if we were lucky enough, a plane trip to a more far-flung destination.
Family holidays stay in our minds for a long time because they help us de-stress and hang out with people we care about. These are the kinds of memories that last a lifetime. Whether you get a stamp on your passport or stay close to home, taking a family holiday gives every member of the family something they can hold on to forever.
- You expand your horizons
There is so much kids and parents can learn by experiencing the world around them. Watching kids learn interesting information as they observe new cultures, or take on the challenges of new adventures in places they have never been before, is an exhilarating thing for any parent to enjoy. When you’re by their side as part of this experience, it’s a pleasure that is hard to beat.
- Stress is taking its toll
The lure of positive benefits you can experience on holiday can be a powerful force. When both your body and mind start to show the signs that a holiday is long overdue, it’s time to get away and restore your energy, and your health.
Today’s busy families have less and less opportunities to actively be together and when they do find those times - in the midst of busy schedules and too much homework, or arguments over who is meant to fill the dishwasher - the pressure of everyday life can make family togetherness seem difficult.
To stop stress from having a negative impact on your family, scheduling regular family holidays - even if it’s a weekend away just a few hours from home - can be transformational.
- You want to get back to basics
Remember when talking with a good friend, laughing at a silly Dad joke or simply walking through a picturesque setting was enough to make you really happy? It still is possible to feel that same way. Leaving your everyday zone to plant your feet in fresh soil - far away from worries about work and daily life - can be all you need to reset and re-charge. Simple pleasures do still exist, and taking family holidays is a great way to get back in touch with them.
- You want to teach your kids new skills
Whether it’s teaching your kid how to swim, giving geography lessons that will impress their class teacher, or watching them become better people by dealing with situations that are out of their comfort zone, family holidays enrich your children’s lives in lots of valuable ways.
- You miss together time
When normal life pulls you in different directions, taking a family holiday gives you the all-important opportunity to re-group and remember what you really love about each other. Simple as that.
- You’re keen to taste new flavours
Experiencing food from different cultures is always amazing! Even if you are travelling closer to home, the discovery of a new cafe or restaurant that lets you try something you’ve never tasted before adds flavour to your family’s life.
- Overcoming fears is liberating
There’s something about holidays that give us the confidence to take chances and try things we wouldn’t normally tackle. For your kids, the willingness to try new things can be life-changing! With you there to support them, they’ll make memories that last (and maybe some that you even get on camera).
- It doesn’t have to cost a lot
If you’ve been putting off family holidays because you think they cost too much, Wyndham Timeshare can make you think again. By saving on accommodation, you really can afford the holidays of your dreams – regularly (think every year!)
- Getting a bit home-sick can be a good thing...
Even the most fantastic holiday can have a surprising effect - it can make us appreciate what we already have. Whether you take a few days off from your routine or splurge in a longer retreat from your usual bricks and mortar, time in a new setting can make returning home seem even sweeter.
