Returning from vacation
and being ...happy!
The everyday life. This seemingly endless series of days that sometimes follow laboriously, often accompanied by a boredom highlighted by nuances of frustration.
Moods that influence our mood and our physical condition, emphasizing the eager anticipation of this long-awaited summer vacation, promising to change or remove our routine, fatigue, and state of mind.
Unfortunately, at times, we exceed expectations, assigning tasks even to this holiday, almost as if it carries therapeutic burdens, almost magically: as if from this week could arise an energy, an optimism, a strength that could sustain us throughout the year, similar to the bunnies in the advertisement for certain famous batteries… 😁
The holiday effect? Nice, but it doesn't last forever.
Of course, that can’t work. Reality is often very different. The idea that a single week per year can solve all our problems and alleviate possible frustrations is an illusion.
And this way of thinking can even make things worse.
When we place all our hopes and yearly expectations for energy and optimism into a single vacation, the risk of disappointment is very high.
The vacation can be great, but eventually, it will end, and we’ll be faced with daily reality again.
This can lead to a kind of ‘post-vacation collapse,’ where we feel even more demotivated.
Therefore, it’s important to change the way we perceive our daily lives. Instead of waiting for the next saving vacation break, we can try to find joy, enthusiasm, and meaning in the small things of everyday life.
This doesn’t mean ignoring the desire for a break but integrating it into a more balanced approach to life.
How can one make gray and monotonous days colorful?
Here at Hotel Germania, year after year, season after season, we witness our guests leaving with a happy heart, brimming with energy, and eager to return home to embark on their own projects.
There is a resolute and confident determination, the clarity, the strength, the clear ideas to accomplish this.
Therefore, it doesn’t surprise us at all, at least for us producing a certain type of holiday precisely aimed at achieving all these benefits, that a stay at Germania in Jesolo works so effectively in the heart and mind of every guest.
But the question we must ask ourselves is: “How long will this beneficial, luminous, useful effect continue to be so effective? Will it withstand the blows of everyday life, the minor problems, the traffic chaos, the broken washing machine, or the collegial annoyance at work?”
It’s clear that even with all the optimism in the world, a week full of joy and friendship, sharing and fun, probably won’t be able to overcome the obstacles and problems of the other 50 weeks.
It’s necessary, therefore, to delve deeper to find a more effective, useful, durable, and even happier method to live a life with fewer gray, dull, and not always satisfying days.

Let's start with the basics...
Before we proceed, it’s crucial to immediately adopt positive behaviors to make the return from this wonderful and exciting vacation almost painless.
Here are some tips:
Plan your return a few days before the end of the holidays. This gives you the opportunity to gradually readjust to daily life and prevents a sudden return to work stress.
Do not underestimate the importance of a regular sleep-wake cycle and ensure quality sleep. Take time to relax and take care of yourself. A soothing herbal tea (chamomile and melatonin are great!) or a hot bath can help reduce any sleep disturbances.
Adequate hydration is essential for your well-being. Drink plenty of water and pay attention to your diet by incorporating foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Reduce alcohol consumption to promote a better sense of vitality.
Exercise, especially outdoors, is a genuine mood enhancer. Not only does it help reduce stress, but it also promotes the release of endorphins, improving your mood and contributing to better sleep.
Remember, taking care of your well-being is an important step in positively managing daily life after the vacation.
Carry 'the Germania Effect' with you!
What do we do then when we realize that the positive effects of our past vacation are starting to fade due to the routine of daily life?
We need to find a very effective solution to fill our lives with the same colors, surprises, incentives, ideas, projects, optimism, solutions, and fun that we experienced during our happy stay at Hotel Germania.
A new lifestyle that eliminates or reduces the negative impacts we talked about earlier.
Let’s face it, boredom, routine, repetition, minor problems are like a chisel that slowly marks us, wears us down, weakens us, exhausts us, and even affects our relationships with others.
Of course, there are a number of objective limitations that make it difficult to make radical changes in our lifestyle: primarily financial resources, the rigidity of the working world, transportation costs, and even a certain widespread pessimistic mentality that often leads us to seek reasons why things are not possible, instead of positively seeking solutions that effectively address and solve obstacles, difficulties, and problems.
Thousand breaks, thousand smiles!
In our case, fortunately, there’s a ‘compromise’ that won’t lead us to eternal happiness (does such a thing even exist?🤐), but will ensure we smile and guarantee ‘intelligent recharges’ of our mood and vital energy.
What are we talking about? It’s quite simple.
It’s just about replicating what you’ve already seen and experienced successfully at Germania: taking vacations, frequently taking breaks, inventing intelligent pauses, and diverting thoughts to the thousands of beauties we have around us.
But not just, as it’s happening now, once or twice a year, no.
But by incorporating breaks, interruptions from our routine much more frequently than before: long weekends, weekends, even individual days when perhaps we distance ourselves from television and embrace the many opportunities and occasions that our country truly does not lack.
I’m thinking of museums, festivals, exhibitions, hiking, amateur races, sports events, shows, concerts, etc.
We are immensely fortunate to live in a country where nature, art cities, landscapes, and endless beauties make it one of the best places to find numerous opportunities and organize frequent short breaks.
Therefore, we can strive to add these splashes of color to our own lives and to those we love.
Frequent breaks from the routine at home, parking, work, television, etc., can only do good!
The energy is within you: reignite it!
It is within us that we must find this desire and approach this new lifestyle, this change that brings only great benefits.
Essentially, it’s us who must do exactly what we do every week when we go to the supermarket to replenish the groceries and products we’ve used up, or when we refill the tank or battery of our car.
Likewise, we can renew what we did during our important annual vacation at Germania in Jesolo: we regenerate our personal inner resources, our energies, all the mental and physical abilities that help us successfully tackle our daily challenges and enjoy every moment of our lives to the fullest.
It truly doesn’t take much. It’s just a matter of habit and love for ourselves and those who matter to us.
