Use memories of your trip to reduce stress
Several studies have found that picturing yourself in a happy moment could help you feel better in the present one. The next time you feel stressed or overwhelmed, turn your trip into a meditation. Find a quiet place and recreate a favourite 10-minute memory from your vacation. Add as many details as possible—dialogue, background noise, scents, tastes, and sensations. You’ll find inner calm and keep vivid memories of your trip.
