Have you ever used this service? I use it every once in a while and I think a great time to start is when you’re heading home from a trip. If you have wifi where you’re vacationing you can order the groceries while you’re still away and they can be waiting for you when you get home.
Checking one more thing off your to do list when you get home definitely makes returning home a bit easier.
Leave your Home Clean and Organized (as much as possible)
This is a big one for me. I hate coming home to a disorganized and messy house. I do my very best to clean up before we leave. This way, when I come home I don’t get overwhelmed.
My house doesn’t need to be perfect. As long as there’s some order, and stuff isn’t all over the place, I’m ok.
Schedule a Fun Event for when you Come Home
When I was working at my previous job years ago, I would book myself a massage or pedicure for a week or two after returning from vacation. Having something to look forward to really helps me beat the post holiday blues and get excited about coming home.
Whether you buy tickets for a concert, pick up a great book to read or make plans with a friend, making any sort of plans to look forward to when you come home can be really helpful.
Start Planning your Next Holiday!
We do this a lot now. Since we know R’s school schedule and when he has vacations, PD days, etc. we try to plan trips and getaways in advance. This also helps E and I get excited about planning our next trip and think about what we have to look forward to.
What are your tips for beating the post holiday blues? I’d love to read them in the comments!
