Not Sure How To Use Your PTO? Take Some Staycation Inspo From This Always-On Small Business Owner

Avatar

If your PTO days have been collecting dust—either because you’re the never-takes-a-vacation type (guilty) or you’ve had to rearrange your travel plans—you’re in good company.

But PSA: Sometimes the best way to reconnect with your work is to disconnect from your day-to-day. And while you might not be jet-setting off anywhere too far away at the moment, you could take after Nutrition Stripped founder McKel Kooienga, MS, RD, LDN and plan a staycation to unplug in the most #boss way possible.

If you could use a day (or three) off, use some of Kooienga’s staycation ideas from the video above to plan one of your own.

Kooienga is well-versed in the always-on-the-clock lifestyle as a small business owner, but thanks to her Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card she’s found ways to balance her vacay mentality with keeping an eye out for inspo that could relate to her day job.

“Even though I’m taking a break from work here in Austin, I’m always on the lookout for healthy and nutritious food finds for my clients,” Kooienga says. (That’s how you know the food is good.)

If you could use a day (or three) off, use some of Kooienga’s staycation ideas from the video above to plan one of your own. And, if you use your Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card, you’ll gain 15 Elite Night credits annually, earn 4x points at U.S. restaurants, and earn 6x points for each dollar of eligible purchases at hotels participating in Marriott Bonvoy. Terms apply. Honestly, as long as a robe is involved, you know it’s a boss-level staycay.

Watch the video above to snag some staycation ideas from Kooienga’s experience in Austin to inspire your next staycay.
