Rather than focus on how miserable you feel, think about how great your holiday was. One of the best ways to do this is to put all your photos, tickets and postcards in a memory book. You can get really artsy with a massive scrapbook, or keep things simple with a photo album. However you do it, putting together all your holiday snaps will make you smile.
Keeping your tan after your trip makes you feel happier and healthier. So, when you get home, make sure you moisturise, eat plenty of carrots (seriously, it’s a thing) and drink loads of water. If all else fails, you can always live in white clothes and slap on some of the fake stuff. They’ll never know…
Getting your hands on a scratch map is another great way to bring back those happy holiday memories. One by one, scratch off all the countries you’ve been to. The more countries you tick off, the more colourful the map becomes. And you can stick it on the wall to remind yourself of all the wonderful places you’ve been. Not so sad anymore, are you?
When you were away, you probably tried all sorts of wacky activities. Well, just because you’re home, you don’t have to go back to being sensible again. Keep up the fun activities once you’re back. Sports like canoeing, archery and wake-boarding are easy to find. And extreme activities like BMX-ing and white-water rafting are more common than you think. Even if you’re not that great at your chosen sport, those released endorphins will still make you feel happy – result.
For lots of us, one of the best things about holidays is the food. You can discover new flavours and try dishes you never knew existed. If you loved the food you had abroad, buy a cookbook with recipes from the country you visited. From traditional seafood paella to Thai curry and spicy jerk chicken, you can bring a taste of the sunshine to your kitchen.
It might sound obvious, but the best cure for your holiday blues is to start thinking about your next trip. We offer low deposits from £50 per person, so you can get your break booked well in advance without breaking the bank.
