You might have been planning your vacation months in advance, but sometimes unavoidable circumstances can leave you feeling drained and exhausted upon arrival. Circumstances like jet lag or feeling overwhelmed due to an overpacked itinerary can turn even the most promising vacation into a nightmare. Below are some tips on how to recharge and feel energised when on your getaway.

1. Prepare for the jet lag

Jet lag can occur when your body’s internal clock is adjusted to your original time zone. The time required to adapt to the new time zone, which can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. However, there is a way to speed up this process. A key tip would be to follow the time zone of your destination even before your trip. Have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and go to bed in accordance with the place you are travelling to. Meditation can also boost your mood, leaving you feeling refreshed and recharged. If you are travelling to Bali, consider booking your stay with Club Med. Indulge in pure relaxation and rejuvenation as you bask in the serenity of yoga sessions by the beach, where the salty breeze invigorates your senses. Book your stay now and embrace the perfect blend of bliss and tranquillity on your Bali getaway!

2. Take power naps to recharge

Sometimes the simplest and best option to avoid feeling groggy on your trip is to take a power nap. Listed below are strategies to tailor your nap routine based on the task you will be undertaking afterwards.

a. 20 minutes nap
Boosts alertness and motor learning skills such as playing the piano or typing

b. 30 to 60 minutes
Great for decision making, memorising or recalling directions

c. 60 to 90 minutes
Helps with problem solving and creative thinking

Power naps can do wonders for breaking out of that moody state after landing at your destination. Pair power naps with yoga, and you are already halfway there to starting your vacation as it was intended.

3. Don't overpack your itinerary

When planning your vacation, it's important to consider how to make the most of your time away and ensure you have a good experience. One key aspect is to prioritise the activities that truly interest you, allowing you to enjoy and fully engage in them. Instead, prioritise the activities that truly interest you and allow for some downtime to relax and recharge. Give yourself ample time to explore each destination without rushing from one place to another. Consider leaving gaps in your schedule for spontaneous discoveries or simply enjoying the ambiance of your surroundings.

4. Have a conversation

Strike up conversations with people you meet, such as hotel staff, tour guides, or locals at cafes and restaurants. Ask for their recommendations on places to visit, authentic local cuisines to try, or any cultural events happening during your stay. Not only will you gain valuable information, but you'll also create connections and perhaps even make new friends along the way.

Remember, while it's important to follow these hacks to keep your energy levels high, it's equally essential to listen to your body and prioritise self-care during your vacation.
