A Pre-Travel Must

Davis, WV 26260, USA
There is one thing that I have learned to do before I travel that helps with post-travel depression (something that really bothers me)  and also helps me look forward to coming home:

Keeping my home straightened up when I leave it. 

It may seem like a simple task, but when you are in the throws of packing, it can be hard to keep your home clean/organized. However, coming home to a clean home is so peaceful, and can help not only make you happy to come home, but also it helps you get back into your normal routine. 

This doesn’t necessarily mean a deep clean for me, but rather just cleaned up and straightened up, so that I’m also more motivated to unpack and keep my house together. 
When I leave it in chaos, it’s easier to leave my things everywhere for a while. 
Then it doesn’t feel like I’m back to routine. 
But, just straightening up is so helpful- and it’s not as stressful as a full clean. 

For me, coming home and leaving the calm and dream of a vacation with no responsibility other than where you are eating next is SO HARD. After a few depression spells, I learned tips and tricks to help me get back into the swing of things easily.
I just LOVE traveling #wanderlust. 

What are your tips?

See you soon Baltimore!
