Welcome to Part 3 of our three part series that covers managing your trips and travel with the LifeTopix app. In this series, we’ve been following Polly on her birding trip on the coast of Northern California. Polly has returned from her travels, and a brand new year is underway. It’s important for her to get back to her regular routine, and to get acclimated to her work and personal obligations.
Enjoy the following slideshow to get an understanding of how LifeTopix can help Polly combat post-vacation blues, organize her life quickly and simply, and settle back into her normal life and routine.
[This SlideShare was created using LifeTopix 5.2, which is coming soon.]
Create post-vacation to-do lists
Like Polly, most people have a multitude of chores and tasks that pile up while they’re on vacation. Keeping everything you do in one place will make sure that you don’t forget anything important — like picking up Mr. Jinxy from the vet!
Stock the kitchen
After returning from a vacation, the refrigerator and cupboards might be bare. Preparation is key. Make sure you have frozen meals stocked beforehand so you have something to eat as soon as you arrive home. Next, create a shopping list and schedule time to purchase groceries. After eating at restaurants for an extended period of time, your budget might be low and your waistline might be expanding. Home-cooked meals will help solve both issues.
Re-establish a routine
Sometimes it’s an adjustment after travel and holidays to re-establish your normal routine. You’re accustomed to the freedom and enjoyment of doing what you want to do and when you do it. When you return to reality, using software to schedule your appointments, create your post-vacation to-do lists, monitor your energy level and nutrition, and delegate tasks will help you feel in control of your life.
Keep your energy level up
Taking care of yourself is important after travel because, like Polly, you might be feeling a little deflated. Taking vitamins, drinking water, avoiding highly-processed foods, and re-establishing your exercise routine will help you stay energized. With LifeTopix you can log and track these items and monitor any trends.
Share your experience with friends and reminisce about the good times
LifeTopix makes sharing your travel experience with your friends easy. Your journal, favorite destinations, photos, websites, and people you met are all kept in one place. And with the social media and email sharing of LifeTopix, you can share experiences in just a few taps.
We honestly hope this helps you combat post-vacation disorganization and blues. We welcome your questions and comments!
