Building in simple mood-boosters into your daily routine as you settle back into the daily grind can help overcome your post-holiday blues. If only there was a visual treat on every night in January to help with this. Oh wait there is! Now you have even more reason to indulge into a month-long fling of sexy films in World Movie’s Summer of Sin every night at 8.30pm.
Relive the memories
Believe it or not, research has shown that if we recall positive memories they can boost our positive emotions in the moments. So don’t avoid your phone’s camera roll; get uploading, looking, printing, sending or whatever it takes to recall those sun-soaked holiday moments. Unless you have a crazed lover like Maja in Panama, don’t be scared to share them on social media and let your travelling companions also bask in the memories of a summer well spent.
Plan your next trip
Anticipation of an experience is nearly as pleasurable as the experience itself. This applies to holidaying too. Whether it is your next big adventure or just a leisurely weekend getaway, there’s no such thing as premature planning. Need some destination inspiration? Perhaps a Mediterranean Island getaway like the one in Sex and Lucia? Maybe you’d prefer the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps as seen in Welcome to New York, or possibly see a band play in London like Matt and Lisa do in 9 Songs?
Practice good health
The ‚Äòall you can eat’ buffet dinners on your holiday might have been a great choice then but you’re probably paying for it now. Help ease back into the nine-to-five routine by maintaining a proper sleep pattern and a healthy diet. Are you sure you only had 2 cocktails on your trip? Studies show that confessing can also be beneficial to your health, as it can help reduce stress and anxiety. See what Jon, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, confesses to everyday in Don Jon.
