We’ve all been there. It’s 35 degrees outside, you’re sitting at work with a sweater on your shoulders because the aircon is way too cold, and you are scrolling through countless of photos of friends and acquaintances’ lying on the sand and cocktails in the sunset on Facebook. Let’s be honest, it’s not great. If your own holidays are way too far away or non-existent, there is a solution! Here is how to deal with everybody going on holidays apart from you.
You know who I mean with “them”. Those who share a lot selfies on social media. Thousands of them. From the beach. With sunglasses. With bikinis. Unfollow them, hide them from your feed, do anything in your power not to see how much they are enjoying themselves. You’re happy for them, sure, but there is no need to look at those photos of crystalline sea all the time. Out of sight, out of mind.
Enjoy summer sunsets like there is no tomorrow
Getting out of work at 6? Gather some friends and go catch the last rays of sun with a glass of rosé. Stroll through parks and go for some late-afternoon swims. The day doesn’t end after your workday!
Use up your weekends
A weekend can just be as relaxing as a regular holiday. Use your Saturdays and Sundays for trips to the water, or a simple icecream date.
Book a weekend getaway
If your summer is way too busy for a proper vacation, check out some websites for last minute flights. A spontaneous weekend getaway with a friend or your significant other will be like a breath of fresh air.
