Most people would agree holiday breaks and vacations never seem to last long enough. MNN compiled some tips on how to get the most out of your holiday weekend.

While there is no magic wand to make it last forever, experts agree getting plenty of rest and unplugging from work as much as possible are two of the best ways to make the most of whatever time off you have. There is also agreement around making an effort to be “present.” Sounds cheesy, but, if you are focused on who you’re with and what you’re doing during the holiday, your mind won’t have time to wander to what’s looming when all the fun inevitably ends. Another top tip, do something out of the ordinary, whether that is trying out a new skill, a new food, or just a unique experience. That step can make the holiday memorable long after it ends.
