I went on a weeklong road trip vacation to Los Angeles and Santa Barbara with my girlfriend. It was a long trip that involved Disneyland, California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood, camping, my cousin’s wedding, me meeting my girlfriend’s parents, and her meeting practically my whole family at the wedding. Vacations should be relaxing, and this one had a lot going on, so we decided to cut the trip short and come home a day early. It was a good call. We needed a decompression day. It would have been too hard to come home from a road trip like that and immediately go back to work the next day. Everyone should schedule a decompression day to mark the end of an extended vacation. It gives you a little bit of time to reflect on your trip, unpack, do laundry, and catch up on Netflix. It’s like a vacation from your vacation. Get on it.
