The alternative holiday guide
Nevermind where to go on holiday or how to pack your ultimate holiday suitcase - here's how to create the best holiday vibes with family and friends this summer.
1. Communicate your holiday intentions
2. Do you like the people you’re holidaying with
Before you go on holiday, ask yourself these qurstions:
Do I like the people/person that I am going on holiday with?
Am I looking forward to a break?
Am I happy to be flexible with delays, jams, weather variations and insects?
If the answer is YES to all three questions, then you’re onto a winner. If not, maybe you need to reconsider who you are spending holiday with.
3. Switch off all media and shut down
If this is your one opportunity to spend time together – that doesn’t mean sending your other half a text from the beach to the bar to order a drink (although sounds like a great idea). It’s time to reconnect, by disconnecting, recharge you not your devices.
Who cares where another friend is on holiday and if they look like they are having more fun than you? If you care that much, go on holiday with them next time! Now is the perfect time to reconnect with your loved ones, and remember why you are together or sharing time away.
4. Welcome and embrace the holiday brain
If the only decision you must make each day when you’re on holiday is where to eat dinner, CONGRATULATIONS you have officially switched off. If you forget your left from your right, you have achieved ‘holiday brain’. This phenomenon sweeps nations at holiday time all over the world but has been recently on the decline. Give your body a chance to relax but also your mind.
5. Make a great playlist
And when you’re back…
Do you get your greatest epiphanies when you’re relaxed and de-stressed on holiday? It’s a time many of us come up with ideas on how we’re going to change our lives: get more sleep, detox, eat healthier, find a new job, get divorced, get fit.
