3. Create an anchor
After returning from a trip, create an emotional anchor for her memory using the NLP technique. This will help you instantly return to pleasant memories and will improve your mood. An anchor is something that evokes an association with a certain state: an object, a scent, a taste, etc. To “set” it, bring the pleasant sensation from the trip to the peak and inhale the chosen aroma, touch the object or look at it. Then take a break and 10 minutes later, do it all over again. Do this until the anchor is fixed. It is important that the chosen thing is firmly associated with a certain moment, it must be unique.
4. Capture your travel memories
There are other ways to get rid of post-holiday depression. To do this, you need to set aside time and indulge in memories of the past trip. You can work on a photo book, tell your friends or followers about your trip, sort through the souvenirs and remember where they were purchased, watch a show about the place you visited, and plunge into its atmosphere again.
5. Brighten up your everyday life
Depression is a frequent companion of those to whom life seems gray and bleak. The good news is that anyone can revive the monotonous everyday life at least a little. Everything suits: adding bright colors to the interior and wardrobe, tasting exotic dishes (preferably in a cheerful company), mastering new hobbies. With such a set, there will be no time for depression.

6. Take a mini-vacation for yourself
At least once a month, and preferably every two weeks, take a mini-vacation on the weekend. Take a drive around the surrounding communities, visit the city's new park or exhibition, go to a dance workshop, arrange a themed evening – watching Indian movies, cooking and tasting French cuisine. Keep the “traveler mindset” – be open to the new.
7. Plan a new trip
Some people struggle with post-holiday depression in this way – they dream about a new trip and even start planning it. They pick up a hotel, make a list of attractions that they would like to visit, start a piggy bank with the inscription “On a trip” and even buy tickets in advance.
