Make 2023 the year your prioritize yourself with these relaxing vacation rentals
If you’re already feeling some pressure this January, you’re definitely not alone! Ideally, we’d float into the new year fully rested and recharged, but the truth is that we’re often recovering from the holidays by the time January rolls around. We’re taking down decorations, unpacking from holiday travel, getting the kids geared back up for a new school semester. Then there’s the much-needed reboot to our systems after December parties, late nights, and lots of fun. So if you’re finding yourself starting to feel a little more stress than you were hoping for, we fully understand. Aside from really encouraging you to do your best to focus on self-care, hydrating, and getting the rest you need, we’ve got another idea. We want to give you a little stress relief inspo with the ultimate in stress relief: a mom-friendly getaway. And for that, you’ll need a relaxing vacation rental.
Doesn’t seem possible? It is. We promise. You don’t have to book a week at a resort in the Bahamas to unwind (although if you do, we’d love to join you!). Sometimes a weekend away is all we need to get our bearings and recharge. Of course, if you’re already feeling spread a little thin, you probably don’t want to do the research on that. And that’s where we come in! These are the best mom-friendly relaxing vacation rentals out there to help get you balanced, grounded, and ready for 2023!
