Just because the vacation is over doesn’t mean the feel-good factor has to be. While traveling has  the ability to transport people from autopilot into unleashing their best life, the comedown can  be tough. Back to reality with too many emails, a holiday glow that is fading fast and a mountain  of laundry, the post-vacation blues can set in, with one in five (17%) Hong Kong travelers leaving  that high-vibe vacation ‘feeling’ on the doorstep as soon as they arrive home.

According to’s travel predictions for 2024, over two thirds (74%) of Hong Kongers want to be  more like their vacation self in their everyday life. With that in mind, shares five tips  on how travelers can hold onto their best self back home – from daily rituals to adopting a more  carefree mindset.

1. Let go
Travelers in 2024 increasingly want to surrender themselves to the element of surprise, explore  the unknown and venture into uncharted territory on vacation, with over half (64%) reporting they  would like to have no plans set in stone prior to traveling. Adopt this carpe diem travel mindset  in the day-to-day, shifting from rigorous planning to relinquishing control for the art of letting go.  Leave evenings or time at the weekend free to decide what feels good in the moment, and allow things to happen instead of making them happen. Whether surfing all day, or working all day,  going with the natural flow leaves people more open to chance encounters and experiences, with  every waking moment an adventure waiting to unfold.

2. Take center stage
Over half (66%) of Hong Kong people feel ‘main character energy’ on their travels, so why not  channel this vibe a little bit more at home? The majority put themselves first and take control of  their own narrative on vacation, and travelers can extend this behavior by being a little bit more  selfish in their day-to-day lives. Think about the unique qualities and motivations that influence  travel plans and trips, such as a love of nature or a passion for stand-up and carve out more ‘me

time,’ whether it’s a trip to the comedy club, foraging in the wild, or simply savoring a cup of tea  without feeling guilty. Amidst the hustle and bustle of life, it’s easy to put everyone else’s needs  first: being more selfish isn’t about disregarding others, it’s recognizing the importance of self care and prioritizing well-being to enable people to show up as the best version of themselves.

3. Shift out of autopilot
Awakening the senses with exciting new foods and sights, as well as being more active is an epic  combination that assists in making travelers feel more conscious, with 80% reporting that they  feel more alive than ever when on vacation. To help bring this feel-alive sensation into everyday  life, keep taste buds stimulated and join the one in five (23%) Hong Kong travelers who cook the  foods that they enjoyed whilst away, jazzing up even the most monotonous meals with ideas and  ingredients from other cultures. Routines are necessary, but there’s a fine line between following  habits and falling into a rut because it’s comfortable. Try to mix up the daily routine with new  experiences to enliven the senses and get moving more. If working out of the home office, for  example, try incorporating an energizing ‘virtual commute’ walk before and after work to mark  the beginning and end of the workday – and switch it up by taking unfamiliar routes to stay alert  and mindful of new surroundings.

4. Make the most of keepsakes
Trip throwbacks don’t only have to be souvenirs and other momentos of vacations gone-by. With  many travelers (37%) looking back over photos from the trip to reignite the holiday feeling in their  everyday life upon their return, why not consider creating a photo book or album of holiday  highlights. With a number of apps on offer that can help streamline from camera-roll to keepsake,  it has never been easier to create something that will help relive and revive that vacation-vibe with  nostalgia.

5. Play
Being away can really bring out the inner child in travelers, and there’s a certain hunger for fun  and games that is sparked from stepping away from the day-to-day. From bat and ball on the  beach to a game of cards over a sunset cocktail and letting loose on the dancefloor, play is part  of the daily vacation ‘to do.’ On return, keep that vacation feeling alive by doing activities that  help maintain a sense of joy, finding new ones as well as those enjoyed during the time away such  as mastering the art of paddleboarding or spicing up the night with some salsa dancing. In a world  where technology means people are always connected, play allows people to step away from the  daily grind and can be hugely energizing. Back home, try to tune into what depletes your daily  energy and boost those moments with some revitalizing playtime – however short – to find a  rhythmic balance between the expenditure and renewal of energy
