Making Time for Your Vacation
Cool Runnings Boat Cruises knows it is time for a lot of us to be getting back into the flow. This means going back to school, university, college or work of all types and challenges.
After a few days of holiday some of us have difficulty adjusting to the sudden demands on our time. After all it is OUR time, isn’t it?
So here are a few tongue-in-cheek suggestions from Cool Runnings Boat Cruises for making it over the first hurdle.
First suggestion is this. When making the bookings for your vacation, or for the time off from work, make sure the day after returning and the day before going back to school or work is dedicated to doing nothing; that’s it.
You get off the plane, train, transport or car to go home and know you have an extra day to just unwind from the stress of traveling from, if you were fortunate, Jamaica. Just take care of yourself and your family.
Then there are those who get back home or to work and may find themselves with thousands of emails, just go through them all and ignore everything else for the whole day. You are actually catching up on what has been happening while you’ve been away, and preparing for how you are going to handle the week. So it is not time wasted.
Oh and organize any meetings for the afternoon of the second day (this from Katherine Dill on the Forbes website, http://www.forbes.com/sites/kathryndill/2014/07/28/5-tips-for-getting-back-to-work-after-a-vacation/).
Someone else says to just pick five things to do and do them, ticking them off on your to do list, there are a few friends who say that this is enough to spark the will to do much more and before they know it they are back in the flow of things and whizzing through their day being extra efficient.
Cool Runnings Boat Cruises writer notes that the advice given here is not so tongue in cheek because a quick look around the web will turn up lots of suggestions to plan a day to ‘recover’ from the stress of traveling, meaning the vacation planning should include the day to just be. That’s not such a bad idea, is it?
We might just add that planning a trip with Cool Runnings Catamaran Cruises will add some extra fine memories to take home with you. So, see you on your next vacation!
