The Vacation Hack I Wish Someone Had Told Me

Going on vacation is something we can pretty much all agree is awesome. No responsibilities, no worries, good food, good times, and that just general all-around good feeling.

The only problem is coming home.

While you can kind of recreate the no responsibilities by taking time off and having a staycation and you can kind of recreate the food (if you’re lucky), it’s really difficult to recreate the feeling of being on vacation.

That’s where this hack comes in.


The sense of smell is the sense most closely tied to memory. So, if you were to pick up something scented while on vacation (like a perfume, body spray, candle, lotion, etc) and use it during your trip when you take it home, you can use it and it will evoke the feelings of being on vacation.

Personal recommendation? Do this on your honeymoon. I picked up some Aruban aloe body spray and every time I use it I fall in love with my husband all over again. It’s basically been elevated to love potion.

What do you think? Would you give this a shot? Let me know in the comments!
