Video Shows How To Keep The Happy In Your Vacation Plans

New York Magazine posted a video on YouTube that will help keep the happy in your holiday.

The video is entitled simply “How to Be Happy on Vacations,” and it centers on the anxiety we feel upon our return from what was an otherwise enjoyable adventure.

As you will see, there are reasons that we feel this way, including not seeking out and highlighting the aspects of the trip that truly make it worthwhile.

The biggest takeaway we found was the planning process. But really, we should let the video explain a bit further on how you can enjoy your vacation even when you return:

We have to echo the planning well ahead tip featured in the video. Some of the best aspects of a vacation take place before you even depart.

There simply is no replacement for giddily putting an itinerary together and anticipating the attractions you will see and the food that you will eat.

And that last part is easier than you might imagine. Every once in a while, it helps to pore over vacation pictures, which has a magical way of transporting you to what you thought would have been unforgettable moments.

In any case, practicing a more educated way of traveling will have you savoring the good stuff well after you unpack your bags.
