10 Ways To Be Happy When On Vacation
Vacation is a magical moment, but most people don’t actually get enough of it, says Juliana Breines of Psychology today. This is because there are lots of situations depriving the expected ‘spark’ to this enjoyable and happy moment, leading stressful vacation, unhappy timeout, and different unhealthy conditions.
After working for a while, is it not right for you to have a time out, relax, sleep more, eat better, and explore a vacation spot? I would love to be happy, especially during my next vacation, as I’m certain most people would. Therefore, how can we be happy and enjoy our magical moments on vacation? Here are ten (10) amazing ways to it:
Cut down your schedule
This is very important, especially when exploring and switching between locations, with lots of anticipated activities could be stressful and boring, causing one to go on vacation while on vacation. SO, to enjoy the moments of vacation, do a thing at a time, be calm and steady, avoid the rush, and be very relaxed.
Don’t be full of expectations
Over expectation can ruin the joy of any vacation, says Belle Beth Cooper. According to Joshua Smith, “there is always a dropped level of happiness, especially when expectation becomes the only determinant to a happy vacation.” Therefore, to avoid unhappy vacation and enjoy the most of it, ease your expectation and be ready to make yourself happy.
Capture all the moments (Pictures or Videos)
Memories are very important on vacation, they give you the historical analysis of every activity, coupled with places visited. Pictures or videos enhance the historical documentation of those moments, as a result, triggers the feelings of joy while you watch them. For your next vacation, go with a camera, spare battery, tripod, and other necessary equipment and tools.
Do, take, and eat what interests you
A vacation should be enjoyed… it is not the time to start looking at the time as if you are still at work. It’s your vacation, remember! Break some rules, do what you like (but be law abiding), eat your favourite meals, eat varieties of food, fruits, vegetables, and do what interest you more often.
Connect with people and disconnect from the internet
Vacation gives you the time to connect with family and friends in most likely ways. Therefore, spend some quality time with friends and family, play games together, organize parties, visit places, and think less about your emails, clients, and business/jobs. To avoid temptation, switch off your data (internet) or leave your phone or computer at home while you go on vacation.
Have your meals outside and do the unusual
Unlike your regular days at work, when you hardly have the time to eat with your family and outside. During vacation, spent the time to do the unlikely things; eat outside, change your flowers, clean your closet/wardrobe, and drink detox water to remove the toxin from your body and detox your liver against disease.
Go for workouts at a gym
Unlike the few minutes, you usually spent for workouts. Though it’s cool, going out to a gym for more effective workouts gives you more results and enhances your healthy living for vacation.
Get a massage
After a long week of working hard and sleeping less, a massage will get your nerves relaxed, allow you to have a good sleep, and wake up feeling great and happy.
Go to cinema, museum, or any interesting spot
On a normal day, going out to a cinema, museum, relaxation centre, and the likes could be very hard, due to your tight schedule and the work load from your job. But during vacation, you have all your time and day to yourself… go out, walk a few miles, visit places like you always wanted, and have fun!
- Careless about your outfit
It’s your vacation, remember! No more corporate outfits; leave your suit and tie for a while, dress in jeans, wear spot wares, and spend more time out without looking at your watch.
