How To Bring The Holiday Home With You

Don't you hate it when you come back from a really fun trip and just feel depressed?

This time last month I was in sunny San Francisco having the time of my life trekking through Yosemite and exploring Alcatraz.  Fast forward to now and I'm sat at my desk in freezing cold London!  So this got me thinking, how can we continue that holiday feeling when we get home?


Re-live the memories

Thank God for smart phones because now we can re-live all our memories just by scrolling through our phones.  Looking at photos and uploading them to Instagram, re-watching Insta-stories and reliving the magic.  Even printing them off and putting them in an album if that isn't too old fashioned for you!

Re-create the holiday

Why not try to do some of the things you did whilst you were away but in your own city?  When we were in San Francisco we went for brunch every morning at a different place, visited a comedy club one evening and took walks in the park.  These are things we can do here in London so we are now trying to go for brunch every Sunday followed by a walk in Greenwich Park!


Get planning your next trip

I know this isn't always feasible but the best way to get rid of holiday blues is to have something else to look forward to and it doesn't have to be another holiday, it could just be a visit to the theatre or dinner with friends.  As January is coming up we are going to look in the sales for flights to Stockholm and New Delhi for next year!


How do you bring the holiday home with you?
