Sitting at work on a Tuesday morning, going through our Instagram feed, dreaming of a much-needed vacation, we spotted our celebrities doing just that: Vacationing! Meanwhile, we sit here hunched behind our computers dreaming about the vacay we can take – celebrity style! But that’s healthy too. According to Paul Emery, a master therapist at Ananda in the Himalayas, Affirmational Havening – a technique to increase serotonin (the happy hormone) – involves chanting about the positive state you want to be in. So take your hands and stroke from the top of your shoulders to your elbows all the while chanting, “Vacation”.
For added inspiration, go through these vacationing posts we’ve gathered of our celebrities.
Mahira Khan is sailing away all her problems in Turkey! Well, it’s not exactly a vacation, but she gets to sail across the Bosphorus and that’s what counts. Let’s not get into the story where she lost her luggage though. Next up is her forever co-star (or so it seems).
Sheheryar Munawar was spotted acting all artsy in Poland. We’re guessing, he must have been swamped with his recently concluded film, Project Ghazi, and before he gets back into action for Meenu Gaur and Farjad Nabi’s film, Saat Din Mohabbat In he decided he deserved to get away from the daily grind!
After the hectic award season, Ali Zafar took his wife to a romantic getaway in Venice. It seems he needed a break with all the shooting he’s doing with his new co-star Maya Ali for Teefa In Trouble. But as of now Teefa is surely NOT in trouble!
Maya Ali, sharing her co-star’s sentiments, also headed to a mini vacation. She’s living a wonderfully stylish life in Thailand as we speak. She is totally making it to our best dressed list with those comfy sweats and superstars.
Urwa Hocane took a whole new spin on vacationing and after spending a few weeks burning the midnight oil in Cape Town, she looks super comfy in her Pjs with a pile of books and scripts by her side.
Renowned designer, Tena Durrani, was spotted having fun with Kareena Kapoor in Dubai. Nope, they weren’t bonding on their newly born sons. They were there for a fashion shoot of Durrani’s upcoming formal collection.
Momina Mustehsan is the ultimate globetrotter and her Emirates gold membership is proof enough. She’s not only giving us vacation goals, her shade game is on point too as she cools off in Central London.
Atif Aslam is going from London to Brussels to Amsterdam. He singing all over the world and nothing seems to be getting in his way!
Bilal Ashraf was seen having some fun with fashion in Spain. If taking selfies outside the El Ganso’s shop is your thing then look at this image, conjure it in your head and chant the magic word loud and clear to shoo away your midweek blues!
