For a whole year, a person plans how he will spend his vacation wonderfully, what exciting events he will attend. But the cherished day comes, and the happy vacationer is too lazy to even get up from the sofa and look away from the TV. Thus, it is impossible to rest fully and with health benefits, so you need to buy tickets ahead of time so that there is no temptation to stay at home.
The main rule of vacation is to completely disconnect from thoughts about work. You will not be able to fully relax if you constantly think about ways to solve some professional problems. Warn colleagues and superiors that you will be unavailable while on vacation. If possible, turn off your phone and do not read your email.
Effective rest is obtained when a person completely changes their lifestyle, daily ritual and habits. It is necessary to force the body to work in a different mode. In this way, you activate those parts and systems of the body that practically did not participate in your life, and give rest to the "workhorses". For example, a clerk turns off his brain calculator and goes on a long hike. He puts stress on his lazy muscles and makes the brain work in a different direction.
If your job involves endless physical exertion, go to the resort and wallow all day on the beach under an umbrella. Just do not forget, in this case, interesting books to give your brain food for thought.
Not everyone can afford to travel abroad. If you are not going to the resort this year, go to the country house. Do not plant a huge amount of vegetables so that your vacation does not turn into hard labor. Make small beds that have enough harvest for you to eat.
Arrange your little oasis of relaxation with a hammock in the shade of fruit trees, with a barbecue that teases with the delicious aroma of cooking meat. Install a large inflatable pool, and your vacation will be no worse than on the beaches of Antalya.
A cottage or a house in the village can be rented for the duration of the vacation. Choose places based on your hobbies and preferences. Fishermen will look for the nearest reservoirs, avid mushroom pickers - forest trails, and lovers of Russian traditions - a hot bathhouse.
Don't divide your vacation into small pieces. Doctors have proven that you can have a good and full rest in at least three weeks. If you change the environment often, the body does not have time to tune in to the rest regime.
