After a long stretch of holiday celebrations and for some, vacation time, it’s time to head back to work, ostensibly refreshed and ready to hit the ground running again. But regaining focus can be easier said than done.
What are the steps to follow?
Re-establish your morning routine
Refocus your mind by rebuilding your old morning routine.
Plan out the first week
Don’t freestyle – give yourself a solid structure by carefully planning out each day.
Reconnect with colleagues and clients
Take a day to catch up with colleagues and clients – checking emails can wait.
One bite at a time
Returning to work is a process, so approach tasks in small chunks, rather than taking on too much.
Be kind to yourself
We all deserve time off, so be kind to yourself and ease back in slowly.
