Use Those Post Holiday Blues

The main holiday season is just beginning in the UK, so some of you will be soon be off on your breaks.

But whenever your last vacation was, just think back to it.

Maybe you went away somewhere exciting and had a really great break, doing lots of things you loved, trying out new foods, meeting new people, having exciting experiences, maybe even being as radical as ditching the smartphone for a couple of weeks …

Then came the day you were coming back to so called 'normal', everyday life.

As you were sitting in the airport waiting for your homeward flight to be called, or standing at the train station waiting for your train to arrive, or driving along the motorway, was there a little moment when you thought, 

"I wonder what would happen if…
- I traded my ticket for another destination?
- I jumped on a train going in the opposite direction?
- I took a different exit on the motorway?"

From time to time, I think we all have had a feeling like that, an urge to just get away - anywhere.  Sometimes it can be a fleeting urge, sometimes it can become a constant undercurrent pulling at you as you try to get on with life as it is. I have been through this experience - more than once! I used to measure my entire working life from holiday to holiday.

If any of those thoughts came up for you, if there was a moment when you thought about not coming home, think about:

- what was driving that?  
- what was it you wanted to avoid - work, relationships, your location?
- if you could have changed direction, where would you have gone and why?

As we go into Summer, and if post holiday blues hits you, I'd invite you to keep these questions in mind:

- what is driving the desire to get away?
- what is it you want to avoid?
- where would you go and why?

Think about what you would like your life to be like and create a vision for yourself. And then think what your next steps could be to getting away from a situation/job/life you might not be enjoying and to one that serves you better.

If you want support on creating your vision and your next steps, check out how we could work together and get in touch.
