    I need at least a half day of doing little to nothing (probably reading, getting a report ready, etc) before I get back to the grind of daily life.

    Do you have any recuperating rituals after a trip?

    I basically do nothing for a day. I pretend I'm not dead tired and broke, but it's pretty easy to tell I'm exhausted and my wallets empty.

    I always take the day-after-return as an off day, to recover...(unless, of course, I return on a Friday or Saturday).
    On that recovery day, I force myself to get up at my regular weekday time, and force myself to stay up until my normal time to go to sleep. That usually works.
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    I take the first day home as "detox" day. I drink a lot of water, sleep as much as I can, eat things like fruit, did I mention sleep? After that it's up at the regular time, even if I don't feel like it. It gets me back on track.

    i usually go to sleep on the plane after we finally take off for home, and when i wake up, am grabbing for my boarding pass or any other piece of paper to start writing my list of what i need to do when i get home. do a thing or two on the list, find i am not really so behind and do not have to feel guilty for leaving, sleep well, and get back to life the next morning!

    As soon as I land at my home airport(Midway), I am over Las Vegas. Does not take much for me to recuperate. I don't need to do anything out of the ordinary.

    I always plan to have a day off before going in to work, again.
    But....
    I'll end of mowing the lawn + doing laundry.
    If I get to bed at a reasonable hour on my return home ?
    ( usually not ! )......
    golf in the early a.m.

    I always book Vegas Sun-Fri and on the following Monday at work I used to so often think, "I should've taken Monday off."

    Now I take that Monday off too...so come back home to a three-day weekend. It's like another gift to myself.

    I plan the trip so I have two days to rest before going back to work.

    During those two days I sleep, eat more fruit and juices since I know my body resistance is at an all time low, therefore easily succeptable to getting sick.
