Getting your soul back to work after the holidays
Post holiday symtoms 1- the blues and anxiety
After Christmas and New Year’s holidays, everyone is likely very tired. Going back to work feels like such a daunting task, and it’s as if our soul hasn’t returned from vacation yet. Give yourself a couple days to adjust back to work and smoothly transition back to working condition.
Try doing the following to transition:
1. Share souvenirs and photos from your vacation with coworkers during free time
2. During down time, revisit your holiday photos and videos
3. Start planning your next vacation to give yourself a goal to work towards
To help with your concentration, try making this Chinese red dates tea with wheat and licorice to give yourself a boost and improve your moods.
