Missing the magic of the summer?
You’re not the only one.
Whether you were soaking up the sun on a cashmere soft, sandy beach, swimming with dolphins in a sparkling azure ocean, or having a blast until the sun came up in a buzzing city, coming back down to reality after the holiday season can always leave you feeling a little down.
After all those amazing times, going back to work, getting the kids ready for school and getting caught up in the mundane hectic activities of normal life can leave you wishing you could turn back time!
So how can you beat the post holiday blues? Read on for some great tips to bring a smile back to your face!
Plan your next little adventure
One of the great things about holidays is the break from the humdrum routine of daily life.
Every new day is an adventure – whether you’re going to a new attraction or trying some exotic food! Have you checked out the mouth watering menu at the newly opened Novikov? A culinary escapade in itself!
Planning for the next discovery only increases the anticipation and excitement. While you might have to wait quite some time for your next big holiday, that doesn’t mean you can’t plan little adventures in your daily life.
Why not discover something new at the upcoming Galleries Night? Immersing yourself in contemporary art, trying out different cuisines, starting a fitness class, or planning a hike in the great outdoors are all great ways of introducing something new to look forward to!
Enjoy those memories
You’ve probably got hundreds and hundreds of special photos on your phone and memory cards, right?
Don’t just look back at them with a hint of nostalgia, wishing you were still on that palm-fringed beach! Why not turn those fantastic memories into a creative reminder you can have around you every day?
Instead of printing out photos to put in frames or tuck away in an album you’ll never look at, try fun new ways to turn photos into everyday art.
Make a giant jigsaw puzzle with a great family shot, have photos printed onto cushions or art canvases, or create your very own book – complete with little stories from each family member, recounting what they loved best.
There are some really great ways to turn those memories into vibrant, active parts of your life!
A little extra TLC
If you’re really feeling a little down after your holiday, then make sure you treat yourself to some extra special care.
