1. Clean Your Home/Space/Area

by Dan for SweetEscape in Queenstown

Do yourself a huge rewarding favor by cleaning your house or personal space, and you will surely feel an enormous difference. You can maintain your home, make it feel like home, even more than before. Throw away things you no longer need or serves a purpose in your life. Have a place for everything, and have everything in its place.

2. Plan Your Next Holiday Destination – But Really Plan It!

Have something to look forward to, better yet, make a checklist of all the places you want to see and go to. For each of those places, you can even create a budgeting scheme for your next vacation. Look into the must-see places that you shouldn’t miss when you do go. Think of vacation as a reward for all your hard work.

3. Look Through Your Photographs, Make A Collage

by Andi for SweetEscape in Bali

Take out all of your photographs and have a good long look at each one of those photographs. Let those images bring back those holiday vibes and memories. Pictures last a lifetime, and just by looking at them you will go on a nostalgic ride. Make a collage to decorate your room, when you have some spare time.

4. Splurge On Some Aromatic Candles

Nothing beats a nice cool facial mask over your face before starting work again. It’s cheap, easy, and convenient for use. In just 15-20 minutes time you will look and feel refreshed, and your mood will surely elevate. Too lazy for all that? You can have someone else do it for you. Give yourself a spa day, and both your body and soul will thank you.
