Beat Post Vacation Blues!
Summer's over and the post vacation blues have officially set in. How do you get back to work and enjoy life again? According to Life Success Coach, Steve Fulmer, the "post-vacation blues" are really about how dissatisfied most people are with their jobs and life. It's indicative of how many people are letting life happen to them instead of with them or for them.
The real insight isn't how to survive the post vacation blues, but how to create them in the first place, in other words, how do we take a real, enjoyable, vacation!? What do you really want to experience on a vacation; excitement, relaxation, enlightenment... then search for ways to bring that into your life within your budget and timeline.
Get specific about what it really is you enjoyed about vacation. Could you really spend the rest of your life on the beach, or is there something else that the beach life is triggering for you, such as freedom and personal control? Then ask yourself how you can bring that experience home with you now that you are back from vacation.
Create/gather empowering touchstones that bring you back to the deeper feeling that you want to hold on to and be reminded of. In other words, what can you put into your life that reminds you to stay in control or to remain flexible.
