It’s an adjustment all around as the world settles into a new “normal.” Your plans to be on the beach may have been foiled, but we’ve found ways for you to feel like you’re in a tropical paradise while staying at home. It might not be at an all-inclusive resort, but these things to do at home will feel like a close second!
Start your day off with a workout
Most all-inclusive resorts have morning yoga by the pool, so why not start your day the same way? Whether you’ve been a yogi for a while or you’ve never taken a yoga class before, here are poses and workouts you can do to jumpstart your day. You can even integrate meditation into your routine to set your mind at ease for the rest of the day. If you prefer a higher intensity workout, there are other things you can do at home, especially if you’re trying to keep that beach bod in tip top shape. From Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide to other HIIT workouts, you can get your cardio on in your living room! Just because you aren’t hitting the beach next week doesn’t mean your wellness journey has to be put on pause.
Try authentic Caribbean recipes in the kitchen
Your refrigerator might not offer the same delectable cuisine found at a resort, but you can still bring authentic Mexican and Caribbean flavors into your home. Spice up your kitchen with Jamaican jerk chicken chili or take it easy with slow cooker barbacoa tacos for the whole fam to enjoy. You might not be sitting on the beach, but these tropical flavors will give you a small taste of the sand and sea. Plus, you’ll get to try out new recipes that can last in your home longer than just flavors enjoyed on vacay.
Get creative with crafts
Crafting may be one of your passions, but when is the last time you actually sat down and enjoyed making something fun?

Endless cocktails at home
There’s nothing quite like having endless margaritas from your resort’s swim-up bar. Don’t miss out on your favorite beverages just because you couldn’t go on vacay.
