Has the end of the holiday period got you down already they ask me?
By this time of the year, most people have enjoyed at least a little time off work and so, why are so many of us shuffling through our office corridors with sad dog expressions, moping about our desks looking like we’d rather die than be here at our jobs?
The post-holiday blues might not yet be a recognised syndrome but it is something that darkens the first few days after a break for many of us.
How do I beat the post-holiday blues? This is what I do...
☀ Every time you come back from a holiday, you have an opportunity to dump all the old habits and have the energy to build in a new habit, a new way of thinking or practice a new skill or a new thing you might like to learn or commit to. It doesn’t have to be anything big at all.
☀ Make a list of things you enjoy doing and schedule them into your life
☀ Don’t make holidays the only thing in life to look forward to
