With Eid Al Adha only a few days away, the decision of where to go to have a nice treat during this holiday could be a little difficult. But let’s help you out with these suggestions:
Enjoy your preferred things
When you have a 9-5 job and spend hours in traffic, it is difficult to find time to do what you really want to do with your time, enjoying your hobbies and chasing your passions. The Eid holiday is a great time for you to find time for all of that. Whether it is writing, taking photographs, reading, or making music. Wherever your interests lie, this is a great time to do something you have always wanted to do.
Plan a picnic
Eid is also an awesome time for you to have a good family time. Since you are always busy, do not fail to take advantage of this holiday to engage them. This family bonding can be carried out by planning a family picnic. A number of public parks are now available in Lagos, especially the Victoria Island and Lekki areas where family and groups of friends can enjoy the outdoors, play games, enjoy a meal and retreat home afterwards.
Tour Lagos if you are not travelling
Lagos has a number of interesting places to visit. From the Omu Resort to Nike Arts Gallery and The Railway Museum among others, there are lots of interesting places to visit and see during the Eid break that your regular schedule would not allow you to.
Exercise and eat healthy
There will be so much to eat and drink during these long holidays. Hence you may be tempted to eat more than your stomach can accommodate. Try and resist the temptation and do not forget to exercise.
Have a timeout with friends
The Eid is a great time to catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while. Invite them over for drinks. Catch up on old times, laugh, share what has been happening to yourselves.
The most common thing for many Nigerians to do during a long break or public holiday is to travel to their hometowns. It is usually where parents and siblings are resident. What better way to well and truly relax other than eating from your mother’s pot and enjoying your favourite meals.
