The resolutions we make at the beginning of every year generally tend to be negative ones. We tell ourselves we won’t eat bad foods, that we will stop procrastinating, and we will stop being lazy. Within a few weeks, however, the resolutions are forgotten and we go back to our normal ways. But what if this year, as 2023 begins, we made resolutions that are easy to follow? What if, instead of enunciating the negative, we made a list that was filled with all the positive things that would make our lives so much better? Instead of being less lazy, resolve to travel more and fulfill that first resolution with a visit to the Florida Keys and a stay in our RentTheKeys vacation homes. As a matter of fact, a Florida vacation can be just the start of a list of resolutions that will be easy to accomplish and will bring you joy in the upcoming months; this guide to our vacation homes and all the resolutions you can incorporate into a Florida vacation is our first gift of 2023 to you. The rest will be found in the comforts and joys you will receive during this most wonderful first vacation of the year in our vacation homes in the Florida Keys!
You work hard every day of your life, going in early, working through lunch, and staying late at the end of the day and your hard work pays off when you get to explore the world. Vacations clear our brains, fill our souls, and prepare us for whatever life throws at us and your first vacation of 2023 will set a precedent for all that follows. Our RentTheKeys vacation homes come in a variety of sizes and are located all along the keys, providing a peek into the vibe that makes Florida one of the top vacation destinations in the world! Spend your days exploring all that the Keys have to offer and your evenings resting and relaxing with your family and friends in homes that are a blend of cozy comforts and modern conveniences. Living rooms are spacious with plush sofas on which many a nap will be taken, perhaps after falling asleep while watching state of the art televisions that hang on the walls opposite. Fully equipped kitchens bring back the joy of cooking, containing updated appliances and a cheerful appeal that brings joy as it helps save money from not having to eat out every night!
Spend More Time with Family
This resolution is the most rewarding and can often be the most difficult to achieve, but a Florida vacation can change that. Our houses become homes when your family resides within and are designed to bring families closer together. Open concept floor plans allow guests to do their own thing while staying connected; mom can be watching television in the living room while dad plays a game on his phone at the dining room table, and little Johnny can be enjoying a snack in the kitchen and still remain in each other’s view. Cooking dinner with your favorite sous chefs bellied up to the breakfast bar can encourage conversations about hopes and dreams. And when you climb into bed with the littles each night, reading their favorite books until their eyes flutter close and their breathing becomes deep and even, go ahead and read a second or even third story because these moments won’t last forever!
Play More in Our Vacation Homes in the Florida Keys
Work and honey do lists take up much of our daily lives but the endorphins released during play can be important to your mental health which is why adding “play more” to your list of resolutions is so vital, something that is easily achieved when you stay in one of our family homes. From the simple but charming moments spent playing board games at the dining room tables to the fun times enjoyed in private pools, entertainment is built into every home RentTheKeys has to offer! Rent a Cape Coral home overlooking the canals and spend many happy hours exploring the waterways via kayaks sometimes provided by the owners or boats that have been rented nearby. Soak in the hot tub on a cool winter’s night as the sky lights up with the twinkle of a billion stars and feel your soul quiet as the muscles in your body release all their aches and pains. Watch movies on our state of the art televisions, gather round the tiki bar by the pool, and read books until your eyes can’t focus on the print any longer; these moments of fun are highly recommended by psychiatrists from all over the world!
Be Kind to Yourself
We are often our own worst enemy and can be cruel to ourselves as we would never dare to be to someone else and when you resolve to be kind to yourself, well, yes, our homes can help you keep that promise! Soak in deep tubs with a glass of wine and a good book in hand, take an early morning walk around the neighborhood, perhaps watching the sun rise over the horizon before heading back home to sleep a little longer. Sleep in late, nap whenever you want, and when you get the munchies, enjoy the brownies you baked with your kids on the first night you arrived. Gather round the firepit or outdoor fireplace, talking with the family and laughing until your cheeks ache, knowing the laughter is as important to your mental health as playing can be. If fishing is your thing, the canals of Cape Coral, the waters around Siesta Key, even the bay of Sarasota can give you the opportunity to do what you love guilt free! Life is hard and if you don’t take some time to be good to yourself, it will just keep getting harder and that is no way to start out the new year!
This last resolution can often be the most difficult one of all for hardworking adults who often realize their biggest fears in the long dark hours of the night. These are when the questions that keep you up will run through your mind, demanding answers and resolutions that may never come. But the bedrooms of our RentTheKeys vacation escapes will bring you the rest you crave, designed to be tranquil and comfortable and quite possibly give you a sleep you haven’t experienced since you were just a young child. Read a few more chapters in cloud soft beds, watch your favorite shows as you wind down for the night, and if sleep in a little later the next day, there isn’t one person who will judge you! Waking every morning feeling rested and recharged may feel alien to you after years of chronic exhaustion, but we promise you will get used to it very quickly and may even continue using the methods you use here once you get home from your vacation to kick off 2023 in the Florida Keys!
The Best Days of the Year
No one knows what 2023 is going to bring, but when you start it out the right way, enjoying a vacation you will wish never had to end in one of our RentTheKeys vacation homes, you can’t help but think the new year is going to be the best year. Reserve your favorite today for a vacation this 2023 in the Florida Keys!
