How not to Stress on Vacation

I know, I know. My title is a little off putting. Isn’t the point of going on a vacation to relax and not be stressed out? Yes, it is! Something I noticed on my last little vacation was that I seemed irritable(not only because it was hot out). I was stressing myself out about taking notes and taking pictures for my travel blog. (Even my husband noticed it)

Don’t get me wrong, I love having a travel blog. I live for traveling! But I was letting the one thing I love stress me out. I felt like I had to capture every moment. “I have to snap picture of this, I can’t leave it out from the blog.” I kept telling myself.

This isn’t true at all. The point of a vacation is to get away from work, which is sort of hard to do for travel bloggers. So I told myself I don’t have to stop taking pictures. I just have to take less pictures and only take the pictures when it’s a “This is a total photo opportunity that I cannot miss” kind of thing. Other than that I should just be enjoying where I am at. Taking pictures the whole time kind of ruins the moments. Don’t live through a photo lense or through your smart phone on your whole trip. It sort takes the fun out of the trip.

Have you ever stressed yourself out on vacation? What stressed you out? How did you deal with it? Tell me down below!
