"Don't cry because it is over. Smile because it happened." - Dr. Seuss.
The famous quote is easier said than done. Almost everyone feels upset when the much-awaited vacation is over. Returning back to normal life can be difficult. As you would physically force yourself to get adjusted to your routine life, you might experience pangs of depression frequently.

Well, no matter how hard it is, you have to beat the blues and carry on with your regular mundane life. You can follow the following steps to help your transition from a rock and roll vacation to a plain life.
- Rest at an hotel by the hour after reaching your hometown:
Fatigue has a major influence on your moods. Hence, you must consider the idea of taking rest after reaching your city before going home. Since you have been away from home for so long, your house might not be in excellent regular conditions. It can take a toll on your health to indulge in cleaning it instantly.

2. Take a city tour:
You must have had a great vacation. You must be missing the place dearly now. But, have you ever noticed that many tourists visit your city as well. Maybe, you never explored your city that well. There are so many tourist attractions that you have never ever visited. If you live in Mumbai, we are sure you missed out on marvelling at its beauty in the midst of your busy life.

4. Plan your next trip:
Sometimes planning your next trip would help you get over your post-travel depression. As you would get busy pondering about funding your trip and deciding the schedule, you would slowly come out of your persistent sadness. But, do not book your hotels beforehand. In the age of micro-stays there is no point in booking for your entire stay. If you are planning a trip to the City of Joy, then you must take a break in hotels by the hour as you explore the city without the obligation to return to the same hotel at the end of the day.

6. Arrange your pictures:
No, it would not make you feel gloomy. Rather, you would feel productive. Thus, get busy to arrange your pictures. Decide on the ones you want to print. Zero in on the ones you want to upload on the various social media platforms to beautify your profiles. As you would ponder over the right caption for the right picture, you would completely forget your woes. It might seem a menial task, but, it would easily consume a considerable amount of your time. So, just take your camera or your phone and get going with the task.
7. Write about your experience:
It can get quite boring for your family and friends to listen about your vacation adventures over and over again. But, you definitely do want to share your stories, don't you? Well, you can always write about them. Start a blog or make a scrapbook. You must have taken plenty of pictures. Unleash the writer in you and get going with the much-awaited blog. Work on your creative self and do not let anything stop you. As you would get busy recounting and reminiscing your tales, you would soon stop missing the vacation adventures altogether.
