There’s always a little bit of dread when you think about going home after a lovely holiday, but after a perfect one, that feeling gets stronger. You start to miss the warm weather, the freedom, the late mornings, and how carefree you are when you’re on vacation.
This means that your last few days are sad because you can’t stop thinking about leaving that amazing place. But by feeling this way, you don’t enjoy the last few days, when you should be living and experiencing everything even more than before.
What can you do to stop feeling this way, enjoy your time off, and be okay with going back home? The following tips will help you when you don’t want your lovely holiday to end and you don’t want to go back to real life.
Enjoy The Time You Have Left On Your Lovely Holiday
Instead of letting yourself think about how those are the last few days, you should really enjoy and value those last moments. Live in the moment, enjoy that walk through the old town, read a book under that palm tree, swim in the sea, and go snorkelling.
You’re right, it will be back to real life soon, so why would you want to miss out on some pretty amazing moments on your lovely holiday? Take a deep breath in and open your eyes to see what’s around you.
Yes, take many pictures! Not only for social media, but also because you’ll want to remember those times. If you spent it with family, that’s one of the best ways to remember it, so take pictures of it so you can look at them months or years from now.
If you start to miss your vacation, you can look at the photos and, if you try really hard, you can almost be back there.
Schedule Your First Week Back
After a lovely holiday, the first few days or week are the worst. The hardest part of being back home is getting back into a routine, like going back to school or work and getting up at a certain time.
Make sure your week is busy and full of things to do. This will give you a purposeful diversion and make the process easier. So, plan things to do with your friends after work, run errands, and do your laundry in the first few days. If you keep yourself busy, your first week back will go by in a flash.
