Reduce panic in holiday-planning
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.
