A recent survey of 1,000 Brits carried out by momondo.co.uk found that 61% of those polled experienced ’the holiday blues’ when returning from their travels, compared to 56% last year.
According to the results, holidays inspire a focus on being more off-duty in general, to make returning home easier, with almost a quarter of all Brits making sure they have a couple of days off, after returning from holiday and starting work or study again. And following a holiday, 14% of Brits prioritise time to relax and 14% prioritise quality time with family and friends, according to the survey.
Meanwhile, the return to everyday life after a holiday is often made easier for Brits by carrying on certain habits. For example, 17% of Brits admit to sleeping in longer than usual, for a period after a holiday. And perhaps wishing to retain that holiday glow and stay in shape, the company found 18% of Brits try to eat more healthily, 12% exercise more and 9% cut down on alcohol consumption to make returning home easier.
