We all need a break, but with the credit crunch it’s harder and harder to afford a holiday these days. So what do you do if you don’t have the financial means or the time to get away? Holiday at home, of course! This is easier if you live in a city, but wherever you are, there are plenty of ways to turn your home into a holiday destination …

Book a few days off work and do … nothing. Sleep late, do yoga, laze in the garden or the park, read all day, watch trashy TV … whatever you want.
2. Shop Til You Drop
One of the pleasures of holidays is shopping for mementos of your trip. So have a day of browsing the stores. Spend the whole day wandering from shop to shop and enjoy a relaxed lunch. Just don’t spend as much as you would have done on a holiday!

If you live somewhere more rural, then get out into the countryside and enjoy the fresh air and scenery. Take your camera, snap the views, and enjoy the peace and quiet.
