It’s been a long day (week, month, year, etc.), and you’re craving some time to chill out. Coming to the crystal clear waters and powdery-sand beaches of Anna Maria Island is the perfect vacation to kick back and unwind. But, sometimes, you need to take the relaxation to the next level. Being intentional with your time-off or vacation to prioritize your zen, mental health, and wellness is paramount to making the most of your time on AMI. We’ve rounded up some local suggestions for all types of personalities and preferences to encourage relaxation after all the travel, planning, and preparing is over.
Quiet time at the beach
We’ll start with the obvious: There is nowhere more relaxing than the calm and beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. It’s ultimately why you planned a trip or moved here in the first place! Laying out, floating on the shoreline, escaping with a beach read, going shelling, and of course, catching a Sunset… Some of the simplest and best forms of self-care. All you need to do is head to the Gulf and our glorious AMI beaches.
Zone in on a DIY-Home Project
Sometimes the only way for our brains and lives to slow down is to focus on a home project that requires your full attention for a bit. Maybe you’ve been thinking about adding a fun wallpaper to an accent room, adding a fresh coat of paint, building or putting together a new piece of furniture, or simply rearranging some bookshelves. While renovating the home may not be everyone’s idea of a relaxing day, simply knocking one item off your to-do list or wishlist can bring such a sense of relief. And, if you’d rather pass it off to the pros, our team of experts at A Paradise Home Maintenance will make it even more seamless! A win/win.
Get outside and get moving!
Take advantage of the outdoor adventures and advantages of the Gulf Coast. If you’re looking to get moving and seek a little bit of action or exercise, it’s always good to discover the Great Outdoors! Locally, there’s so much to do! Take a kayak tour, go for a bike ride, drop a line in and go fishing – the possibilities and benefits are endless!
Grab a drink with friends
Whether you’re traveling with a group, are a local with a flock of friends, or are heading out solo and want to socialize a bit, there are plenty of great watering-holes for whatever your speed! Kick your feet up, grab a cocktail or mocktail, keep your phone away, and enjoy the company of your crew. Being present really is the best present you can give yourself and the people around you.
When in doubt, treat yourself. Sweeten up the deal with delicious desserts, shop til you drop and support a local small business, snag tickets to some nearby museums or entertainment, or book a luxurious spa day or just a treatment or two!
