Dealing with those post-travel blues? Fear not!

Flying home

So I’m back and that feeling has kicked in, each time is the same, there’s a 24 hour period where I’m really happy to see familiar faces, the fridge is full of goodies and my bed is still the comfiest thing in the world.

Then that question creeps in: what’s next?

Last night I tidied my room, discovering my junk draw had turned plural. Surely I didn’t leave all of this useless stuff? Someone has obviously been using my room as the ‘we’ll just leave it there for now’ storage area. There is such an accumulation of hoarding that being away has clarified one thing for sure: minimal living is the way forward!

Being out of your usual sphere can give you an advantage: an outside perspective. You can change what was before with what you’ve now learnt. But at first your return home can leave you quiet restless. Try not to get too aggravated with how much rubbish has piled up in the house, or how the climate isn’t quiet the same or that horrid reality of getting a job.

Start getting focussed and plan that next project or another adventure, its the only way to step forward and keeping moving.
