After days or weeks of lazing in sandy beaches, bathing your skin under the sultry sun, watching crystal blue water, playing water sports, out on jungle safaris, exploring new cuisines and night life, the thoughts of going back to work might make you baulk.
A week away from work, depending on your organisation can leave you with piles of mails, files, work to do and pulling out of the indulgence that comes with vacation can take a toll off you but you can ease back quite easily if you follow these few recommendations;
1. Schedule your Return on Saturday instead of Sunday
This might make a lot of difference on your first day of resumption after vacation. Except you have a pressing reason to still through till Sunday, if not, plan to return from vacation preferable Saturday. This is important because it gives a day, to rest, unpack and get ready for work. You sometimes never know how tired you can be after an exciting trip until you hit your bed. You know there is sometimes special about ‘your bed’.
Returning on Saturday will give you a breath of time to catch up with rest, unpack and tidy your clothes, clean up your house and get your spirit, soul and body together for work.
2. Adjust your Wake up Time
This is probably one of the most difficult part of easing back to work after vacation. You certainly do not wake up the same time you do during a vacation and during work days. Until your body and brain adjust back to work time, please get the help of an alarm before a query or two will help you to.
3. Unclog your Mails and Voice Messages
When out on a typical vacation, a lot of us don’t check our mails. As a matter of fact, you want to forget all about mp;etes for work.
work and just revel in the spirit of the vacation. Sadly, the mails don’t go away, it is right there in your box waiting for to attend to it whenever you return. The voice calls also is waiting for you.
Don’t push it forward, it will only keep piling up. Block out time, and unclog them. Answer the mails that needs to be answered, send to junk those that belongs there and free up your inbox. Trust me, an unclogged inbox is like a clean engine, it delivers power. It helps you keep your virtual work station clean and organised.
4. Take it a Step at a Time
There are lots to catch up on after vacating and taking it mouthful might chock you. Bite it one at a time, a sip at a time and before you know it, you have caught it things. One thing that will help you ease back on time is to allocate time to finish up with undone things. Organising and allotting time to tasks will help do more within the shortest possible time and stay sane without losing the lustre and renewed energy you gained during your vacation.
5. Get Over the Vacation Blues
Well revel in it but don’t linger longer than necessary. It was surely a great vacation but it is over so deal. Allowing your vacation blues to drag on will hamper your productivity in some ways. Don’t waste too much sharing jists of your vacation or listening to your colleagues own story of their vacation escapades with undone tasks staring at you at the face. Enjoy the blues but not too long lest you begin to miss the lines
6. Have a Good Sleep
Bouncing back from vacation does not mean burning out and losing the beauty you gained from rest and sleep.
Please still keep up with your sleep and all will be well.
