How To Return From Vacation The Right Way

There will be many things awaiting you on your first day back:
- A full inbox
- A long list of to-dos
- Staff and customers needing your attention
If you dive right in to your work, you’re likely to wipe out all the benefits of taking time off! Instead, get back into the swing of things while maintaining some of the calm and restoration of your time away.
Block off your morning.
Make sure you don’t have any meetings scheduled or big projects due. Then before you open your inbox, pause and think about your work priorities. As you make your way through emails and voicemails, focus on returning the messages that are connected to what matters most. Defer or delegate things that aren’t top priorities. And, remember it will probably take more than one day to get caught up, so be easy on yourself!
