Light Workouts Can Cure Post-Vacation Blues. 1. PERFORM RANGE OF MOTION EXERCISES. “When coming back from vacation, it’s important to focus on reinstating range of motion. You aren’t 2. ENJOY SOME LIGHT CARDIO.

3. COMPLETE CIRCUIT TRAINING. Get some exercise. Beat the post-travel blues by releasing some endorphins via physical activity, whether it’s getting back into the swing of your yoga-class schedule or going on a run. Post vacation blues are real! It takes time to adjust to ones normal routine, but of course the best cure (if you can) is to book another trip – or at least dream about one ��.

The post-vacation blues are real over in my household. I usually feel so ready to get home at the end of a vacation – yet once I’m home and settled I’m quickly reminded of reality and want to be back on vacation again. In case you aren’t caught up, we. A vacation meant to be relaxing actually can create post-vacation stress. Careful planning certainly can help the vacation itself go smoother, but a good recovery strategy afterward is essential.

Brandt-Daroff exercises use gravity to help dislodge crystals from the semicircular canal. Follow these steps to try Brandt-Daroff exercises: Sit in the middle of a bed with your feet on the floor. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for six weeks after the onset of a posterior vitreous detachment. This is the time when the retina is most at risk for detachment.

Avoid activities that are jarring such as running, aerobics, and basketball. The diastasis recti recovery workout program is ideal for women who have received the green light to exercise after delivery and are looking for a gentle and effective way to rebuild core strength and stability. However, pregnancy is not the only cause of diastasis recti, so you certainly don’t have to be a mom to do the workouts. Even if you don’t wear corrective lenses, some blue light coatings can be applied to non-prescription eyewear. 2. Observe the 20-20-20 rule.

Give your eyes a break every 20 minutes and spend 20 seconds looking at something at least 20 feet away. Also, blinking more often helps to moisten your eyes, which may help reduce visual discomfort. For a quick, total-body workout for women, pick five of the best exercise moves and do 3 sets of each. Move as fast as possible between moves for maximum calorie burn.

The next day, do the other five exercises. You can incorporate a few sets of cardio intervals into the total-body training session or do it separately for a longer period of time. 2.

Blues do not focus much energy on their physical bodies; therefore, they are not motivated to exercise.

  • April 11 to 28,2019. I visited the Philippines after 15 years. The best time of my life I swear.
    Now I’m back to Houston I kept thinking about my vacation: (

  • If you feel down in the dumps, it’s ok! We all are sad after a vacation, but just know that there will always be a next vacation, maybe even better than the one you were on! ��

  • I am currently getting back from Florida and I am Devistated. It’s crazy every year we go to Florida and I am sad AF when we get home. I think I would be prepared for it but I am just sad every time

  • I just came back from a two week holiday in Australia from the UK, and I feel horrible. I had experienced so many new things in that country. I conquered many of my fears there and went well out of my comfort zone. I fell in love with the weather, the beaches, the friendly atmosphere, even the small things like the soft water, the cleaner air, and everything I came to know about the country. The contrast between the two countries is what hit me the hardest. Australia seems like a utopia compared to the UK, it’s like everything was perfect there and when I got back home, it all disappeared from me, and I felt so lost even in my own environment.

    This video did help me though, I will try these tips and try to become more positive, remembering the good things about the trip rather than being sad that I’m not there anymore.:)

  • so perhaps my comment isn’t really significant but i’d like to thank you for validating and affirming what I feel after my travels to Europe…i do hope this goes away soon

  • Yesterday I came back from Sicily and I can’t stop thinking about it. I really want to go back to the morning I went to the airport!!! ��

  • I have PPD too! I miss PH so much and I really want to go back home. hopefully I can go next year. Anyway, glad to know that your back in Australia now and you look happy. keep it up B!

  • It doesn’t take long to get into the routine of things, I hate having to go to work tomorrow after such a good vacation but once you clock in and put a couple of hours in it’s like you never left, look forward to something fun and just spread your vacations out evenly throughout the year, I take 4 vacations a year every year, mostly just long weekends a few hours away from me but it helps, work to live not live to work!!!!!!

  • I just got back from the outer banks, so nice, calm and beautiful. Back to good old Toms River, and now I have to go back to 6th grade, all of my teachers give me homework, and I’m not a depressed child. Really. I have a YG audition to go to soon, and I’m going back to outer banks, and going back to Disney in November with the girls form my group. I’m so upset, and I’m really excited to go back though, it’s just. It’s hard to fall asleep because I’m crying writing this right now. �� I’m hanging out with my friends tomorrow to practice some songs, but I’m still upset about outer banks. I’m always this way, but it will get better! Haha, lolz. ����������❤️

  • It helps to plan a weekend getaway on first day back. I just got back to Texas after a week in Hollywood and feel like letting this fuel tanker roll down a ducking hill. ��

  • My family doesn’t understand that I have this and every time im absent they think im just lazy but the true thing is that im depressed and don’t want to see my classmates.

  • Just got back from a 3 day trip with college miss it already. We were swimming in a few degree water and the bonds we made was amazing. We were marching at night in the freezing cold too. I wanna cry:(

  • Spent 3 weeks in Russia, I literally had my dream vacation lol it has been 3 weeks since I am back home, and I thought I was over it but school started n it makes me so tired n I have post vacation blues again:(

  • Thanks for the info and thanks for taking a risk and showing your vulnerabilities. You probably helped more people than you think.

  • I got back from the Dominican Republic earlier today, and I’m so depressed lol. Its difficult getting back into your normal routine, after a such a nice vacation

  • Wow, didn’t know this was a thing…I’ve gone through it so many times! Glad there are many who can relate…The depression really is debilitating…One way I find to get through it is planning the next trip…Helps gets me up for work in the mornings…

  • I’ve just come back from Mexico like a few hours ago and im just really upset but it’s like it’s 00:10 here but in Mexico it’s 6pm so I’m wide awake and I jut keep thinking about how I would be going out right now and seeing everyone, going to watch the amazing entertainment, having an amazing meal and just have a good time. I can’t even distract myself with socialising with friends because when I do they ask me about my holiday and that makes me think about how sad I am and also they are all asleep but I can’t even keep my eyes closed for a minute.

    I was meant to be going to Scotland to see my family so I was excited for that and wasn’t really bothered about coming home but I’ve just been told we can’t go.
    Also I just don’t really know what to do with myself im used to being busy and having fun but now I don’t really know what to do and let’s just get it out of the way it’s freezing in England so I’ve gone from 30*c to like 9*c ��

  • I don’t get it. I want to know how to overcome post vacation blues. You told us to buy some product and smear it all over your body. What does that have to do with it?

  • You look very fresh now, and you looking good now. Great to heard that your back safely in Australia. Yes really hard to adjust again after a long vacation.. Takecare always. Keep rolling your camera.

  • Christmas holiday is over and i was just home with my family but it was so nice spending time with them and now i just want to get back at the beginning of it but sadly im back to school ��

  • ive never heard of this kind of depression but im glad youre out of it! ive just subscribed. how many weeks did you stay here in PI? has this happend to you after travelling to other countries?

  • We get depressed because we should live our lives as much as we can. We shouldn’t HAVE to work to live. It’s ridiculous how green paper can make us miserable or happy.

  • I’m glad that other people feel this way too. The last vacation I took was 5 months ago. All I can think about is going on vacation. I can’t focus at work. I don’t want to hangout with people. I have felt very down lately. It’s very weird when I get a glimpse of sun in the car or a nice breeze it’s like I feel good again but that only last a few minutes. I have just been very busy and not really had time to relax and now with the whole coronavirus it has made it worse. I had to cancel a vacation. I’m having to reschedule wedding stuff. I think stress has a lot to do with it too.

  • I was experiencing this the first week I was back!.. I been back for approximately 4 months. I can’t wait to go back. I’m sick and tired of that western life!

  • I stumbled upon your channel and love it even more. I look forward to your next adventure. Thanks for this positive message about a topic most don’t like to reveal. You are an inspiration to us all. Thanks again my friend. Happy trails. ♡

  • Don’t hear about this a lot, but love it you talk about it! So open and honest great:) I’m sad to hear though you got a thing like this! That’s not great my friend:(

    I do remember this feeling too. When I went camping one week in the summer, with a lot of other kids (some kind of summercamp) I was so sad when I got home! I don’t have brothers and sisters you know, and at the camp there were so many children to play with all day! Like one big family! I always cried in my room back at home, cause I wanted to be at the summercamp! It’s a horrible feeling!

  • I just returned from Cebu City. I have family now in the Philippines.  I feel the same way.  I miss my Pinoy friends.  Thanks for sharing!

  • I took a week off! I have been feeling down. Reliving my days off. I feel sick. Back to work today was a nightmare. Why does it need to be so hard!!!

  • I’ve found that youtube is great therapy for post travel blues. I too sometimes feel nostalgic and miss these places I go to after I come back home. Like when I came back from London and Brussels last month. So what I do is I watch youtube videos of these places and even my own videos that I shot, and the blues goes away to an extent. But that doesn’t mean I’m completely over those places, I definitely still miss them, which is why I plan to back, but probably not till next year.

  • I live in the Philippines! Anyways yesterday I just arrived home here after traveling to California, Nevada and Colorado. It was so fun and exciting since I was curious at everything. My home, it doesn’t feel the same anymore. I like how my dog missed me but it feels like I don’t wanna come back home anymore. Now I’m back in my house sitting in the couch all day and looking at my phone…

    It’s weird because I’m usually a person who just likes to look at my phone all day and even too lazy to go out. Now my life is completely changed, I still wanna keep traveling! I just came back like 21 hours ago since touch down.

  • I just came back from Hawaii late last night and the first thing I did when I got home was cry. When I finally fell asleep I woke up really late and just feel like crap. My mom also went on a trip somewhere else recently and she said that there is no reason for me to be upset as she just got back into her normal routine. I think it’s harder for me then her since I’m younger(14) and never had such a good experience in my life. And ever time I go on a trip even if it’s just visiting family in a nearby state, I come home depressed and crying for the next few days until I get back into schedule, but it’s so hard especially at the fact that I have to go back to school tomorrow and usually when I go on a trip it’s in the summer, so I don’t have to worry about school. I want to plan on going again, but since I’m still young I need to make sure that I can go with my older brother again, which makes it sad because I don’t know when he’s planning on going again or if he’ll want me to come again. Also i don’t know if my mom will buy me a ticket again, so I can’t really look forward to going again until I know for sure that I will go again. It’s just weird because I had the thought going to Hawaii to keep me going through school and boring everyday life, but now I can’t think of anything to look forward to to keep me going through my everyday life. Sure there is summer, but all I’ll do is watch videos or tv and waste my life doing stuff like that. I remember last summer I spent half of my time playing video games in my room and isolating my family and the outside world, which I hate and want to slap myself for that. Hopefully this summer will be different and more for filling since I’m aware of my issue. Usually my brother goes camping nearly every weekend in summer, so I guess I’ll use that to look forward to. To be honest I might not even use your tips, but this video got me thinking about my situation and ways to improve it.

    Even if you don’t read this, thank you for allowing me to get out all of my feelings out as my mother doesn’t understand them.

  • Some excellent advice, reminds me when I had 3 months long service leave in ’99 travelling/cycling in outback oz and japan. Adjusting back to work after a great adventure was depressing. If I didn’t have to work to survive I’d be travelling lots doing volunteer work (to ease my conscience:) ) and of course keeping active. At least now the work I do is more enjoyable. Travelling as they say opens your mind and part of it is questioning your own way of life where hopefully you’re not too afraid to make some important changes.

  • Just came back from Florida with my grandparents. I just keep looking at the picture and wanting to cry. I’ve got my GCSE mocks this week aswell. ��

  • A lot of people get PTD after visiting Philippines. I know I do. It lasts 3-4 weeks for me to adjust, but I miss the country all year until I come back.

  • I always go to a roleplay summer camp for three weeks in the summer and 6 days ago when I got to the station on Sunday I felt loneliness and everything was so quiet unlike the camp, because there you have from 3 to up to 9 man rooms so quiet is not an adjective here. So I got back from the camp and began to tear up a little bit. My mom asked what’s wrong and I couldn’t say anything, only that “Just, this camp was so good”. So I started researching after this stuff and that’s how I got here.
    It was a really immersive experience being there. This was the camp btw: www csillagtorony hu
    It is in Hungarian so if you check it out use translate

  • This is why I take an additional five days off after coming back from a vacation to acclimate back to normal. Your body needs to recuperate after all the activities during the vacation. It’s like a mini vacation after a vacation. The feelings are normal and glad you understood it.

  • I got back from barcelona yesterday with my school and it was such a good trip I keep looking at the photos and I seriously want to die

  • I have had it all day today because I met Dan and Phil yesterday and went to there show and now I have been crying all day do you know how I can stop it

  • I had a 3 week holiday in the Philippines with my younger brother and my mum. I saw my family, went to different resorts, got my hair done and spent time with my cousins, etc. And I loved it. It was an amazing holiday, but then when I arrived back home I just felt really sad to leave. I had to go to school the next day but I still felt depressed and sick so I had an extra day off which is today, my mum understood me that I felt sad when she came to visit. And then I have to go back to school tomorrow… Im still feeling upset and I just start crying when I think about it. I’ve missed a while on school and the pressure it’s putting on me about what I need to do at school and the new timetable and my ex-friend who upsets me. It’s too much, I just want to stay at home with my family and sleep. ��

  • funny how it kinda sneaked on you too and I’m wondering how long it took before you actually figured it out on how it came about. more than likely it’s the people you’re surrounded with and the communities too..

  • Returned back from a trip to America spending christmas+ new year with family. I have to go back to school tomorrow, jet lagged and pretty miserable. It was so nice waking up knowing that you’re doing something exciting and new.

  • Hey man, this is all too familiar. This usually happens when you go back to the grind, and you’re always thinking about how fast the however many weeks you were out there for went by. And you’ve got another year to work and save up, and with the post travel depression, the length of that year seems farther away than it actually is! I’ve been through this quite often.

  • You’ve traveled quite a bit, but I’d like to ask you this….have you ever felt like this after coming from a trip other than the Philippines? Did you felt something similar, though probably the same intensity when you visited the PI previously? How about coming in another country, say Thailand or Vietnam?

  • Wise young man. Great Tips! Great Life advises. Yes mental depression is no joke. Still feeling some of that depression since moving here to the PI from the US.

  • Thank you for sharing all those tips. I know I’ve been anti-social and haven’t been going out for awhile but didn’t really see myself as depressed but from your tips I can see that I’ve been depressed… and if I keep at it I’ll be really really depressed. Thanks a lot!:) THANK YOU!:)

  • Very informative:) I think most of us suffer from depression to a certain level or time.The problem is many times we are too ashamed or trying to deny it.It’s hard because it’s only us who could understand how it feels.I myself experienced distance blues and other emotional disorders too.But I was able to dust it off by trying to focus on my new life,new friends,increase my workout time,new music,my organic gardening,watching youtube videos,with a good attitude and with prayers.Stay safe and thanks:)

  • I’ve also spoken about this on my channel. It’s very real and know that you are definitely not alone if you are going through it! I Get several emails every day from travellers going through it. Knowing that you’re not alone should be of some comfort and you will get through it:)

  • Hi dude,  I think it’s your body readjusting from the Philippines.  This happened to me too.  I have been to Philippines many times as I was born there and now I am a Canadian citizen.  What I have found is that Philippines has a different tune or I guess frequency from the first world countries.  It seemed to me that the natural frequency in Philippines  is in tune with the natural wave frequency of the earth.  I find that there are so many natural paradise there and the jungle areas and beaches are not surrounded by so many electro magnetic waves.  You might think I am weird but when you are surrounded with many waves of frequency you get depressed especially if those frequency waves are not natural.  In first world nations we are constantly bombarded with micro wave ovens, Television, telephones and RFID chips and computers, ipods and radio towers, satellite dish and the list goes on.  I find that when I am sitting under a tree or just relaxing by the beach in Philippines without all these gadgets I am in tuned peacefully with my surrounding and myself.  Yeah I know u think I am crazy but I really feel happy when I am away from all these gadgets and away from man made radio waves etc…   Idk there might be something to it, perhaps you can vlog about it my friend.   Anyway I hope you will visit again thanx for sharing your Vlog….

  • I’ve found the best thing to do is focus on getting back to the place you miss ASAP.Funny thing is I only have had PTD after leaving one country.Planning trip 6 now,hehe.It’s more fun in the Philippines!

  • Nice to see this video……I got home after two weeks vacations to New York…..now I am feeling like someone is calling my name and my mind feels somewhere else out of this world….it’s already been three weeks but still my mind feels out of this world…I consulted with my gp and gave me betahisine medicine…I always feel exhausted tired lazy after my vacation….I had tinnitus it was good but after my vacation tinnitus level is very high which is bothering me…could please give some helps and tips..how to overcome this….thank you…..

  • What a great video & I am so glad that you touched on this. On my return home to Canada from my first 6 month trip through Thailand back in 2009 I fell into that post travel depression & it took me quite a while to get back up on my feet. It can be really hard to find your footing again (especially coming back to a structured life from that nomadic freedom).

  • This is great! This often hits me even during weekend random getaways with family. Such a good reference here. This really helps a lot!

  • Thank you so much I don’t feel guilty for crying when I come home from my holiday because as soon as the door opens I just instantly want to cry and now I get why I don’t want to eat and why I was feeling really sad and now I know not to isolate my self so as soon as I unpack I instantly text my friends and we just hang out and even if we’re board it doesn’t matter and I always go to the gym with my friends the day after and you have now helped me to talk to my mam about it and it turns out she is feeling the same way.

    So like I said thank you so much��

  • Great video, thanks for sharing. After 13 months in Cambodia I was really depressed on my return, family were the ones that did not want to hear about it, it was bad. A year later I am better but not 100%. But heading out in two weeks to the Caribbean so life is looking good.

  • I went to few countries in Asia for a brief 2 weeks ( My first Solo Trip). I returned to Malaysia 3 days ago feeling soooo weird and Down… It was difficult!. I am recovering now though.. Glad to know I am not alone. hahaha!!!

  • I know that feeling it sucks especially when you back at work and thinking about what you would of
    been doing if you was still on vacay.definitely going to try the cream,A friend of mine likes the fragrance
    Brazilian crush.Thanks for sharing vecina��

  • OK..I remember that the day you’re leaving Phil. in your prev.vlog that you’re not feeling well then..thank God you’re OK now..and your PPD too.
    cant stop laughing bout the “cr” lol..I can see how disgustingly it might be.���� anyway looking forward for your new vlog.God bless always.��

  • Thanks for this tips cuz I’m having it right now. I just got back from a solo trip to Turkey and it was definitely the best moment I’ve ever had in my entire life. That 10 days I had while I was traveling change me in a way I never thought I’d ever experienced and now I feel like I could used that change inside of me to make my life in a better way but right now these blues I’m having felt like a needles that keep poking me. I know it’ll go away but I don’t know if I’m strong enough to handle it

  • hey thanks for sharing man. it’s a tough topic to address. I understand the feeling though. I have done my share of traveling and in long periods of times (1 month 1 year) in several different countries. anyway, it is tough to deal with PTD. it takes a bit of time and conscious effort to really get through it. thanks again for sharing your insight. take care.

  • Great topic! I just got back here in the US after a good month stay in the Philippines, my jet lag is real bad, I’ve been awake for 3 days now during night and asleep during the day. I consider it as a detox stage, I stop all the alcohol, cigarettes I’ve smoked, and all the oily food I ate. I was bad hehehe.. I guess my body is still in shocked. I lost my appetite, I missed the people, just want to stay in my room. Indeed a Post Travel Depression. ��

  • Excellent topic AKA: Detoxing off/from the west…I agree 100% and have also experienced this transition within a holiday and relocating to and/or from anther country.

  • I just got home late tonight from my 10 day cruise and my sister left 20 minutes ago to go back to college I told myself I would get like this but here I am I feel like crap like I had a moment what paradise was like and now I’m back in to the swing of things were I just have to live through life and my only good time is the weekend and it was normal and not that bad before I left but now it just sucks especially since my best friend who’s my sister is gone and she was my room mate this cruise and I always feel safer with someone to sleep with:(((( give it a month or 2 and I feel completely normal though

  • I’m not trying to adapt again to my reality. I want to change my life. Every time I travel and come back to my country it’s like a stab to my heart.
