Intelligent Planning Can Prevent PTD
I remember, in one of my treks to the Himalayas, a team member openly confessed that “hangovers” of these trips always last for a few days after reaching home. And you may also be experiencing the same after a nice winter holiday. These post travel depression (PTD) or post vacation blues- nostalgic feelings, loss of appetite and tiredness- are generally proportional to the length of the trip. But nothing to worry! They will disappear gradually. Sharing holiday experiences and photographs may reduce the blues.
But to prevent PTD, don’t plan something very hectic for the next vacations, take short vacations instead of one long one and return from vacation on Fridays. Do not forget that tourism / vacationing / holidaying connotes relaxation, rejuvenation, having fun instead of trying to see and do as much as possible in a short duration.
