  1. Plan a Vacation: Even If It's Local or In Your Backyard

    Plan a Vacation: Even If It's Local or In Your Backyard

    We all need to plan time off from work to spend quality time alone or with family and friends and recharge our minds. However, taking paid vacation time is something not every American worker is doing. According to the U.S. Travel Association, American workers left an average of 33% of their paid time on the table last year.

    National Plan a Vacation Day, which is the last Tuesday in January (this year, it’s January 26), reminds us to plan our vacation at the start of the year for the rest of the year. The earlier you plan a vacation, the more ready and relaxed you’ll be when your vacation time gets here.

    Pop Ups and More for Winter Sports
    Just because it’s cold or even snowing doesn’t mean you should forget to use a shelter for winter sports! Whether you’re participating in an outdoor recreation event or watching a game live or on television, pop-up canopies are perfect for your winter sports activities.

    Did you know sunscreen is not just for the warmer seasons? Just because it’s not summertime anymore doesn’t mean you should skimp on sun protection. Protecting your skin is just as important because the sun’s harmful UV rays don’t take a winter break! According to Accuweather, sunlight reflects off snow the same way it reflects off a pool in the summertime, which can still cause a sunburn.

    Players or watched outdoors, winter sports fun can still bring a risk of skin cancer. Sun protection is your best line of defense when it comes to skin cancer prevention.

    So, before you head outdoors for winter sports fun, why not make sure you have a reliable shelter to protect you from the elements?
