Two Tips To Cut Down On Time-Wasting Distractions While You're Staying At A Resort

Posted on: 4 June 2015

Despite the fact that it can be so expensive, a resort in an exotic area of the world is an excellent place to vacation in. But if you're not the most organized person in the world, there's a good chance that you'll regret wasting your limited time at the resort on mundane matters. If you're committed to cutting down on time-wasting distractions as much as possible while you're staying at a resort and hotel, follow these two tips.

Make An Initial Plan For All Your Meals Before You Travel To The Resort

Especially when it comes to deciding what to eat while you're staying at a resort, information overload can be a huge problem. If you're only discovering just how many excellent dining options you have when you're already at the resort, you'll end up wasting a lot of time deciding which particular restaurant you should eat at.

To combat the problem of information overload, research all the dining options you'll have before you even travel to the resort. Make a list that associates all of your meals with a particular restaurant or other method of obtaining food such as room service.

Of course, there's no reason to stick to any list you make if you suddenly discover a great restaurant you missed in your research. Mainly, a list is helpful for creating a default choice and eliminating the confusion that comes with having to make an immediate decision.

Install Software That Locks You Out Of Your Internet Browser After A Certain Amount Of Time

You can browse the internet almost anywhere in the world. If you're one of those people who can use a computer for hours on end without even noting the time, installing a lockout program for when you're at the resort will benefit you greatly.

A lockout program is a program that you can set to "lock" you out of an internet browser if you use it for more than a certain amount of time. While it's usually pretty easy to open up a lockout program and break the lock manually, the extra effort involved in doing this could be the difference between browsing the internet for another hour of your precious resort time and going out and doing something more physical.

If you have a laid-back personality, you may be opposed to micromanaging how you spend your time at a resort. But there's an important distinction to be made between putting every vacation activity on an itinerary and simply finding ways to either dodge indecision or avoid activities that you could do on any weekend.


Staying Somewhere You Will Love

When I started traveling a lot for work, I realized that it would probably be in my best interest to figure out what to look for in a hotel. After staying at a few bad places, I decided to make a list of amenities and comforts that I had to have. For example, I decided that I loved having an accessible gym to work on my physique while I was in town. Also, I adored having a laundry service, so that I could return home with a vat of clean laundry. After I made this list, I would compare it with the advertised features, so that I would get what I wanted. Read my blog for more traveling advice.
