I recently returned home from a 2-week vacation in the Caribbean and I have to admit that I’ve been moping around a bit, feeling a bit blue and trying to come up with a plan to live on an island permanently.

Am I the only person who hates to see vacation come to an end?  I’m almost like a kid when it comes to having to pack up and go home.  I get all misty-eyed.

Chase Away Post Vacation Blues

After all the planning, securing great deals and then actually enjoying the crystal clear water, lazy days on the white sand beach, snorkeling, boating and every color of blue imaginable, it can be difficult to snap back to reality.  I have a plan that guarantees an end to post-vacation blues and it will work for you, too.

5 Ways to Chase Away Post-Vacation Blues

Chase Away Post Vacation Blues

1.  Turn Up Your Favorite Music

My favorite music happens to be the oldies music I grew up with – 70’s & the 80’s!  Don’t judge me. It’s feel-good music and I can belt out those lyrics just like back in the day.  It may be off-key, but that’s OK.  You may even catch me doing the funky chicken.  Who remembers that dance?

2.  Exercise

I’ll be the first to admit that I over-indulged on freshly baked french macarons and homemade mushroom, spinach and cheese-filled ravioli while vacationing.  It’s high time to get back into the exercise routine.

There’s nothing like taking a walk to chase away the blues!  When we exercise, our body releases feel-good chemicals called endorphins.  Just remember to ease back into your exercise routine.

3.  Light a Glade® Candle

Scents Impact Feelings

Did you know that scents impact feelings?  After exercising and taking a shower, it’s time to get invigorated and back to reality, so the first thing I do is light a Glade®  Candle.

I’m all about that smell, so having my Glade® candle burning while I work on projects or when I’m trying to meet deadlines is a must.  Glade® Blue Odyssey Candle is new and exclusively at Walmart. Besides the amazing scent,  it’s a larger candle and burns up to 60 hours.

In no time at all, I’m jotting down new ideas and getting back in touch with my creative side.
