It can sometimes be extremely difficult to ease back into regular life after a long holiday. Who wants to come home, right? But, don’t panic! These are 6 tips to ease back into regular life after a long holiday.
6 Tips to Ease Back into Regular Life After a Long Holiday
1.Before you leave on your vacation, create up an itinerary for the day you come back. Make sure to include everything that’s part of a normal day. This serves as a reminder for getting back into the swing of things.
2. On your first day back to work, plan to show up a bit early. This keeps you from accidentally arriving late and gives you a bit of extra time in the morning to get caught up on work.
3. Do what you can to keep up your daily routines while you’re away. If you normally enjoy a cup of coffee or tea every morning, find a place where you can do the same during your trip.
4. Dedicate some time to reading through the mail and email that piled up while you were away. If you have a lot of messages to sort through, break the job up into smaller segments so it isn’t too stressful.
5. Get in touch with your friends and neighbors. Ask them about how they were while you were gone and tell them about the highlights of your trip. Having a pleasant conversation with people who are regularly a part of your life is sure to help you feel comfortable about returning to your normal routine.
6. Rather than watching new episodes of your favorite shows over the Internet, during your trip, save them until you get home. This way, you can enjoy them once you get back and settled into the routine of watching new episodes when they come out again… just as though you never left.
While no one really wants a holiday to end, we have no choice. Remember, the sooner you get acclimated to your normal routine, the better!

Those are useful pointers, Corinne. I am saving this one along with the one you wrote on Pondicherry.
That’s for the vacation and this one after it.
Ah! I’m staying tuned to hear all about your Pondy trip, Aesha.
