For most people, the holiday season has or is about to come to an end. For the lucky few who still have a bit of leave to enjoy and are dreading going  back to work, it's imperative that you spend the final few days of your leave wisely, whether on your travels or at home.

Relax

This may sound like a basic tip that everyone knows, but it really isn't. A lot of people tend to spend the last few days of their leave up and about and stressing about going back to work. Try your best to relax, because that's what leave is for, right?

Read a novel

Reading can be one of the best ways to distract yourself from the stresses of the world. It takes you into another world and allows the mind to relax and wander. There are few more tranquil activities than reading. 

Do your favourite things

Whether it's watching movies, playing outdoor sports or simply sleeping, it's vital that to keep your mind fresh and your stress levels at a minimal you do what you truly love. When you eventually get back to work, you'll have a lot less time to do just that.
