There is nothing more invigorating than that feeling you get when you are out on the open road, free to roam wherever life may lead. However, as much as we all love traveling, there are times when we all get a little homesick. The answer to satisfying your yearning heart is simple. Make the road as much like home as possible.
One way to make your RV work for you is to decorate with a cozy interior and good lighting. Put in your own unique home-style furniture, and find art that will make your RV comfortable to you. Lay comfy carpet and walk around barefooted. Bring in scents that make your RV smell like a personal haven. Bring along your MP3 player. Find songs that arouse that sense of adventure, but don’t forget the music that brings you a little piece of home. Create a comfortable sleeping situation. We all know that the worst thing to have when you’re traveling is an uncomfortable bed. Fix yourself up with some extra padding and pillows, or whatever you need to get a good night’s rest.
Always try to avoid things that cause the doldrums. An indisputable way to bring on the blues is to hole up in front of the TV. Instead, actively participate with the people surrounding you. Play games or tell stories. Pick up hobbies like playing instruments or creating works of art. Refrain from over-indulging in junk food. We all feel much better in the long run if we partake in healthier options. Exercise! Healthy food and exercise can cause you to release endorphins that will keep you happy and alert. Get dressed up. Get a shower, do your hair!
Finally, appreciate what you have at your fingertips. There are so many things that we can do out on the open road that we could never do at home. Take up photography. You would be amazed at the beauty you can find when you just take the time to look. Go hiking or ride your bike at every chance you get. See the sites. Meet new people. Don’t become an RV hermit. Keep yourself so busy that you won’t ever want to go home!
