Every task, if planned in advance and adhered to a strict schedule, can be successfully and profitably completed. And vacation is no exception. Do not be confused by the thought that on vacation you only need to rest and indulge in idleness.
Vacation is the time in which you need to have time and actively relax, and do important things, because on working days they simply do not have enough strength. In addition, so that the vacation is not wasted, watching TV and serials, you need to correctly distribute each day of rest.
To begin with, decide what will be the most important event on this vacation: a trip abroad, a long trip to nature or the sea, work in your summer cottage, or the solution of some global issue, for example, with housing or a car. You should devote more time to this business on vacation. It is better to schedule a trip or problem solving for the first half of the vacation, so as not to worry about the beginning of the whole vacation.
At work, arrange in advance with your superiors about a vacation, settle all the formalities and close to the start of the vacation, complete all important projects and transactions so that nothing and no one distracts you. If you book a trip through a travel agency, take care of the voucher a few months before the start of the trip. Then you will not only be able to save on early travel bookings, but also choose the best location and most attractive hotel of all. Don't do it at the last moment: "last minute" tours are cheap, but you have to choose from the remaining options, and this can ruin the experience of your vacation.
You should return from the trip at least a few days before going to work in order to go through the acclimatization period, enter the regime and prepare for the work process, tune in to it. Otherwise, if you do not decompose things, you will not get used to the idea that you will have to change your rest to work days, this will lead to stress for the body, and you will have to deal with the necessary matters after the end of a hard working day.
If during your vacation you will find a solution to some global issue related to housing problems, renovation, purchase or sale of real estate, or simply rebuilding and cleaning the entire apartment, it is also important to draw up a good plan for performing all the operations. Look at things realistically and do not put things on the back burner. The vacation only seems long, but all good things end too quickly.
But planning a large number of things for one day is not worth it - you simply will not have time to do everything and you will feel dissatisfaction. Divide everything into small steps. For example, today you need to meet with a realtor, discuss the main issues and cost, tomorrow start collecting certificates, then prepare all the necessary papers. When it comes to home improvement, do not plan to clear the balcony and strip off the old wallpaper overnight. It is better to have one small task every day that you can easily complete, leaving yourself time for pleasant meetings or outdoor recreation. Otherwise, by the end of your vacation, you will be even more exhausted than after working days.
Even if you don't have a long trip or big things to do on vacation, still plan what you need to do on each day of your vacation. Otherwise, you will be wasting your time, and you will not have time to rest. Schedule meetings with friends, going to the cinema or theater, going out of town or visiting relatives. Do what you have long wanted, but you could not afford it. The more experience you get from your vacation, the more refreshed you will feel. And planning a vacation will help with this.
