Re­duce panic in hol­i­day-plan­ning

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

If you're about to head off for a fun, relaxing va­ca­tion but are feel­ing stressed about it rather than ex­cited, don't worry, you're not alone.

Ac­cord­ing to Liz Sharples, lec­turer in travel and tourism at the Univer­sity of Portsmouth, UK, although we look for­ward to it our va­ca­tions all year long, re­search sug­gests that rather than be­ing ex­cited we are of­ten wor­ried as our hol­i­day ap­proaches. Here is a check­list you could fol­low.

Do ask for help. It shouldn't all fall to one per­son so get your part­ner/ friends/the whole fam­ily in­volved.

If you work then try to or­gan­ise your work­load a cou­ple of weeks in be­fore your va­ca­tion so you are not stressed out.

Do check cli­mate, visas and health re­quire­ments. Stock up on any­thing you need.

Don't leave the plan­ning to the last minute, pack early to take the pressure off.
