Nothing brings you back to Earth than the first day back to work after a vacation. While talking about what a wonderful time you had can be seen as obnoxious by some, it can make you feel happier! Experts say three parts of the whole vacation process can create happiness: the planning, which builds anticipation.  The experiences while on vacation, and the reminiscing, which helps make lasting memories you can enjoy forever. Cornell University researchers reviewed eight different studies and found people derived the most enjoyment from discussing experiences they had, as opposed to discussing things they bought, or not talking about their memories at all. So go ahead and boast about your vacation.  Most people do want to hear about it and you’ll solidify those lifelong memories.
