In my opinion, the whole point of a vacation is to forget about time and go with the flow. Unfortunately for me, my partner has a very different idea of what vacations should look like. So, whenever we embark on a new adventure, mine comes with a set schedule, a few tips to keep track of time, and a full-blown budget for expenses. On which side are you?

Why Time Management Is Important

Planning a vacation down to the minute is not that fun. However, there’s a valid reason to plan your vacations ahead of time. Otherwise, travel planners wouldn’t exist. Here are some reasons to support those that believe time management is important while on vacation:

  • You’ll save money
  • You’ll be able to have more rest time
  • You can use your downtime to be productive
  • You’ll have more time to visit more places
  • You’ll work on your time management skills

How to Use Time Management While on Vacations

The idea isn’t to get so involved in your time management process that you miss all the fun of your vacations. Proper time management is all about optimizing your time, so you’ll have a chance to do more. For your next vacation, consider following these time management tips:

  • Keep a to-do list of items of things you’ll want to get done each day. Break this list down by importance.
  • Delegate prep-time whenever possible to have more time for yourself.
  • Get familiar with your destination. Take some time to look at local restaurants, public transportation terminals, sightseeing spots, and so on.
  • Use your downtime to be productive.
  • Make time to relax. After all, you’re on vacation.
  • Plan for the unplanned. While that sounds insane, it’s all about leaving open time for emergencies.

Finally, this is my advice: don’t take it too seriously. While having a plan and keeping track of your time will undoubtedly help you get the most out of your vacations, it shouldn’t feel like work. The moment it does, stop, and reassess your planning strategy. Remember, relax!
