We all look for a vacation so that we could rest and enjoy the adventures. However, many of us still struggle to decompress during vacation. Therefore, I made a list of the most valuable tips that I’ve tried that actually helps to decompress. If you think you need to improve your vacations and enjoy the moment, this post is for you.
Important tasks? All done!
First of all, do your best to finish all the important tasks that can’t wait till you’ll come back from vacation. The less work you’ll delegate to your colleagues, the less they’ll need to contact you. This is the number one tip if you want to actually decompress during vacation.
Laptop stays at home
The second tip is not to bring your laptop with you. If you’ll have it, you’ll definitely use it. And what’s the point to look at the computer screen when you have so many things to explore while traveling? Plus, you probably work with a computer every day at work so if you want to decompress during vacation – there can be no laptop.
NO to work mobile phone
Also, if you want to decompress during vacation, you shouldn’t bring your work mobile phone either. However, I know that in some cases it’s impossible. So tell your colleagues to call you only when it’s extremely urgent or to text you if there’s something they need for you that cannot wait until your vacation is over. Then you could call them back when you’d be available.
No thoughts about work
Another tip is that you should stop yourself from thinking about work. This is one of the main reasons why we can’t decompress during vacations. However, if you’ll learn to distract yourself when you get thoughts about work, it will be quite easy for you to decompress.
The Internet is not needed
Besides, you should limit your internet usage during vacation. Of course, you can use it when you need a map but don’t waste your precious time on scrolling. It always takes much more time than you’d like to. So if you want to decompress during vacation, you shouldn’t use the internet when it’s not a must.
Decide to enjoy the moment
Well, and the last tip on how to decompress during vacation is to decide. Make a decision to enjoy the moment, take the most out of your vacation and be present. Once you’ll decide to do so, it will be much easier and you’ll enjoy your vacation to the fullest.
Instead of having one more vacation where your body is in one place and mind is in another, you should be all in your vacation. Live the moment, enjoy what you have and be present no matter what.
