Don’t rush to turn on your phone
If your tour was in a quiet peaceful place away from civilization, don’t rush to return to the ‘modern world’. Messages and emails can fall on you at the same time. When you turn your phone back on, put it on silent so messages and reminders don’t overwhelm you. Give yourself a few hours to recover from the road. You can make a couple of important calls, but that is all.
Send yourself a travel postcard
This little trick will allow you to revive pleasant memories a few days after your arrival. Imagine that you came back home, started to work and have almost forgotten about your vacation when suddenly a postcard with a view of the St. Petersburg Catherine Palace comes. Put it in a visible place, positive emotions never hurt anybody. Many people have a collection of such travel postcard cards. Sorting them, they are distracted from everyday problems at least for a while.
