So, you had your holiday vacation and now you are struggling to get back to your daily routine? Don’t worry, you are not the only one!
When we go away for a long vacation, it can be difficult to get back to our daily routine. Being disconnected from work, social media, and everything else makes it tricky to get back to work like nothing happened.
Sure, we went away on vacation to rest but also to recharge our batteries… but the batteries take some time to heat up and start working. We might feel tired instead of full of energy. This is because we need time to adapt back to our routines.
What we should do is get back little by little. Don’t accept huge and difficult projects right away when you return from your vacation. Try to start with short and easy projects and work yourself up to working on those huge, time-consuming projects again.
Make sure to take your time. Taking small breaks every 20-25 minutes can help to ease into your routine. Also, during those breaks try to step away from the computer’s screen, maybe even walk a little. This will give you the energy to get back to business!
After a couple of days, you should feel comfortable again working at the same pace you used to before your big holiday break.
The important thing is to listen to your body and your mind. Don’t force them into giving 100% from day one, give them a chance to get used to the routine once more.
This is one of the “cons” of taking a long vacation. Sure, it feels great and we all deserve it but getting back to the routine might be a little more difficult. Of course, our brains and our bodies are amazing, and they will get working at the same pace in no time.
Just take it easy, take time to get ready, meditate, and just go with the flow!
