You know that feeling when you come home from vacation and you just feel blah….You feel like you had this amazing vacation and now what! What am I supposed to dream about? What am I supposed to look forward too?
It kind of feels like the excitement is gone for a bit. Well today I want to talk about how I combat post travel blues. We all experience this situation but there are things we can do to make it a bit easier.
While I can’t magically extend your vacation for an extra week or month. Though I do really wish I had that power I can make it a bit easier to transition back into reality and escape some of the post vacation blues.
The first step actually happens while you are still on vacation or right when you get home depending on your timeline. I need you to grab your phone and open the CVS App!
Then go to the photo center and order photos from your trip. Go crazy order 10, 20, 30 pics or more that make you smile as you see them! As you pick each photo take a second to remember that moment of your vacation. The laughter, the joy, the excitement, the thrill of doing something new or maybe the thrill or the most amazing food you have ever eaten. As you pick pictures savor each emotion and feeling that comes to you.
Now click order and pick the size of photos you want!
If you are still on vacation don’t worry! The CVS App will let you easily locate the closest CVS to where you are at this moment. You can geo-locate to the store and your photos are done within an hour!
So order your pics while you are packing up, or enjoying breakfast or whatever is happening right now and then when you are ready your photos will be there for you.
When you get your photos sit in the car and take a moment to look through them. The goal is to keep those happy joyous feelings going for as long as possible. Write on the back of them if you have a memory you don’t want to forget. Did an inside joke start on the trip? Write it on the back of a picture and mail it to someone. Did you do something you never though you could? Post that picture on your desk or on your fridge to remind you daily of how amazing you are!
Take your photos and put them in places you will see them in your house, your desk, your office, your car! The places we all go on a daily basis that may not inspire that vacation joy. Use these pictures to inspire you daily! To dream of a reunion trip! To dream of a sandy beach! To dream of the best food you have ever eaten! To dream of watching sunset with your loved ones. Whatever pics you choose they can help inspire you on a daily basis and help minimize the post vacation blues!
