Holidays are the perfect way to relax. It’s all ‘go with the flow’ all day; no strict deadlines or a certain timeframe to spend on lunch. You’re the one in charge: plans or no plans, anything goes. Back home we try to keep this up by having dinners with friends or drinking a glass of wine in the garden. But what happens when you have to go back to work?
Getting back to work after a relaxing vacation can be daunting. And while an office job can seem constricting in terms of your freedom, it’s key to find spontaneity in the small things. Seize the moment and create a life you don’t need a vacation from! How? We’ve compiled a list of small things to change in your day to day work habits:
1. Take your time for lunch
One of the great things about being on holiday is having the time to eat an elaborate breakfast, lunch and dinner. This endless time is not available for lunch break at work, but don’t neglect the time you do have. The lunch itself doesn’t have to be special, but always make sure to leave the desk and take time out of the day for it, as you would on holiday. If there’s enough time, convince your coworkers to go for a small picnic!
