The digital boom has completely transformed the thoughts, needs, and socio-behavioural responses of millennial.
However, the same digital world that accelerates the modern day social and work life also mandate an equally immersive detox from a life on the World Wide Web.
Both, GenX and millennial want to relax and rejuvenate on a daily basis after their working hours and on weekends in their home cities without undergoing the hassle of planning and executing a vacation to a far-away location.
Here are few ideas to relax and unwind in your own city without having to shell out big bucks for an exotic vacation.
Explore stimulating live entertainment events: Millennial love to spend their Saturday evenings watching a music, dance, poetry, or comedy performance instead of a two-hour motion film. Live shows with a mass appeal such as Navrasa Duende’s upcoming theatrical political satire R. Ka Laxman’s common man and Shapoorji Pallonji’s Disney Aladdin have been a big hit in India.
Another festival which encourages cross-culture pollination is the Delhi International Arts Festival which is inclusive of 30 participating countries.
Restore work-life balance with yoga and wellness sessions: The shifting nature of stresses at the workplace and in the complex and layered personal life of the average person has necessitated long-lasting blissful relaxation which restores balance in one’s life. You can immerse yourself in such wellness experiences through UrbanClap.com including yoga retreats and spa/massage treatments.
Spend a night watching movies under the stars: As the young and old alike are showing an increasing affinity for spending an evening chilling and interacting in an outdoor environment, this has finally resulted in the emergence of pop-up cinemas in India.
These allow you to watch your favourite cult classics or horror films under the stars in a garden or on a rooftop instead of a dark and dull movie hall. Additionally, these events are high on the fun-and-fusion quotient because of mini acts by DJs, food trucks offering amazing finger-food, live music shows etc.
Take your pet along wherever you go: With the emergence of the modern-day animal-friendly workforce, there is a rise in events that allow one to spend a fun-filled day pampering their pets with food and play in a suitable environment.
Since most office spaces do not allow pets, GoWork’s co-working campus in Delhi provides pet-friendly space and even hosts Pet Play Days to de-stress the employees who seldom find time for their pets.
Immerse in a luxury ride around your city: People these days are averse to spending large amounts of money on buying luxury cars and prefer substituting them with self and chauffeur-driven vehicles for inter and intra-city transportation.
One can opt for renting a high-comfort vehicle installed with professional drivers and GPS, from domain experts such as Eco Rent a Car which provides luxury vehicles like Limousine, Mercedes Sprinter and luxury Volvo coaches for an executive class travel experience in metros as well as tier II cities such as Jaipur, Lucknow, Goa, Ahmedabad etc.
