You walk back into the office at 9am sharp. You take a seat and soon realise you have five meetings to attend, your computer has burst into flames and you have 150 emails to reply to.
And then you think, 'this time last week I was having breakfast by the sea'.
Yep, going back to work after taking a trip away is a bit of a bummer, but you'll soon settle back into normality.
So, if you have even a sliver of the post-holiday blues hanging on your shoulders, here are four ways to make it better.
1. Buy your favourite coffee
Take a few minutes before work to buy your fave three-shot mocha, and just sit back and relax.
Winding yourself up about all the work you have to do will do you no favours. So, just chill for a minute. You can handle it.
2. Catch up with your work wives
You might dread being back in the office setting, but we're sure your work wives are just dying to find out how your holiday was.
Grab a cuppa (you will have a lot of hot beverages on your first day back), and take a minute to chat to them in the kitchen.
Just talking about your fab holiday memories will turn that frown upside down.
3. Take a walk at lunch
Just a mere two days ago you were walking along the beach, we know, we know. Now your back sitting in your office chair for eight hours.
Do yourself a solid and take a walk a lunch. It'll clear your head after replying to those 100+ emails.
4. Plan something exciting
We know you literally just stepped off the plane, but having nothing to look forward to can be a bit… well, sh*t.
So, whether it's a small getaway a couple of months from now, or simply a night out with the girls, start planning something that you can get excited about.
Going back to work after some time off can be hard, but it really isn't all that bad. You'll no doubt be back up to speed in no time.
