Spring Break is almost over and soon everyone will be back on their daily routine. While the break was a nice time to rest and recover from school, you may now need to recover from your break. Many students traveled and will soon be coming back to the reality of school and work. The shift from long, relaxing days to hectic, crazy schedules is enough to drive almost anyone crazy. To try to make the transition back to school a bit easier here are some useful and practically free ideas:
Try to reset your internal clock. If you were in a different time zone then the first days back will be a little rough. Try your best to adjust back to the change and slowly get yourself back to your old routine and sleep schedule.
Drink lots of water. If you drank on vacation you will want to make sure you are hydrated. This will make everything easier. Travel can also put a lot of stress on the immune system and drinking water will help keep your body healthy.
Avoid napping. It may seem crazy, but if you keep napping it will take longer to get back on track with your daily routines. Try your best to stay awake and keep your day as normal as possible.
Share your adventure. Make sure to show those close to you photos and stories of your trip. Talking about the time you spent on vacation will help you stay out of the after vacation slump.
Learn something new. On vacation there was always something to do or focus on. At home try to pick up a hobby or find a new interest. By keeping yourself busy you will be less likely to think of how much you miss break and also pick up a new skill.
Plan your next trip. While the last trip is fresh in your memory write down what you liked about the trip and what you would change. This will help make your next vacation even better. If you know what you want to do on your next trip you will be more successful planning it. After writing out your list, start planning the next adventure! Plan where you want to go, what you want to do or see and most importantly how you plan on budgeting for it!
