Tips For During Your Vacation

Tips For During Your Vacation
  • Scan your email occasionally to reassure yourself that nothing catastrophic is happening in your absence.
  • Try some activities, maybe something new, so you can have so much fun you forget all work related stress.
  • Turn off your phone and email notifications so you’re not constantly reminded of work. 
  • Don’t be tempted to work. You are taking a vacation to get a break. Working during the break will add stress to your trip and resentment when you return.

  • Give yourself enough time to complete the work you have committed to before you leave and don’t take on new projects.
  • Delegate important tasks to someone capable and trustworthy.
  • Practice relaxing before you leave by researching about the destination and having relaxing evenings.
  • Don’t plan on working while you are on your vacation.

Travelling Solo

Travelling alone can be the ultimate in self-indulgence: You can do what you want to do and rest when you want. Your mistakes are your own, and your triumphs are more exciting.

But without a companion to watch your back, you are more vulnerable. But, a little preparation and common sense can save you money and give you the ultimate experience.

10 Tips To Really Enjoy Vacations
  1. You’re more likely to relax if you take more frequent vacations/year and dial down the expectations on each one.
  2. Family visits are more likely to result in a feeling of exhaustion. Prioritize your top 10 relationships for the year and find ways to interact with them year-round. 
  3. Getting more adventure on your daily life will take the pressure from your vacations to be adventurous making it more relaxing. 
  4. Spending some time outdoors reminds us how small and insignificant most of our problems are.
  5.  A staycation – a vacation from work without the travel - will help with regulating your sleeping schedule.
  6. If you’re traveling don’t hop from place to place, instead try to immerse yourself in them more. 
  7. Plan in transitions. Leave home later and come home early, to ease back into your routine over the weekend. 
  8. Nearly all deadlines are arbitrary. Map out what needs to be done on your return and extend the deadlines around your holiday instead of trying to meet them all before you leave.
  9. Don’t over-plan and over-extend your vacations. 
  10. Find the time and space prior to it to focus on work without interruption so you can fulfill your workaholic needs and not feel like you left too much unfinished.

We become stressful or anxious while packing for a trip, due to us going out of our comfort zone, or in front of uncomfortable and different people.

Our previous good (or bad) travel experience also comes in play.
