Plan your route in advance
When going on a road trip with your family, you want to be as organized as possible. Try to plan your routes as far in advance as possible and try to spend some time researching them before setting off on your journey. The more research you do, the less stressful the journey will be when taking it on. Plus, through your research, you may find some places you would like to stop off as well as key information like when the road gets busy, any tolls etc. Having an idea of when to stop off is important as taking a rest when driving will avoid tiredness.
Create a playlist
Part of the fun of a road trip is spending time together and enjoying the journey between your destinations. Before setting off, create a playlist that you can listen to whilst on your journey. Give everyone a chance to select some songs that way you can all feel like you have been involved. Put some uplifting songs on your playlist as this can get everyone singing, smiling and laughing. When you are starting to feel a little tired on the drive, having an uplifting song can help wake you up and make the drive more enjoyable. Music is a great way to practise self-care as well.
Plan activities you all like
A holiday allows you to spend some quality time together as a family. A time to create special memories and many laughs. Part of your holiday is getting excited before you go and a way to increase that excitement is to plan activities together. When planning these activities, make sure they are ones that everyone will enjoy doing. Something that gets you all together and excited to take part. Of course, there will be moments you can’t please everyone, however, try to get as many people involved at every stage of your breakaway.
