Vacations can be bittersweet. Leading up to it, the excitement is inevitable. Once there, it’s like you’re seeing the world through rose-colored glasses: everything is amazing! But once it’s over, and you are back to reality, then post-vacation blues come knocking. 

Whether you work in an office, a coworking space or at home, nothing seems to get you motivated to begin work again. Yet, working is a part of life, so how can you beat those feelings? By taking matters into your own hands, knowing that you will have to fight urges with the right tools. So here are some steps you can take:

Organize: 

By having a roadmap to follow, you will likely stay on track. Do ensure, however, that you do not get discouraged by looking at the seemingly monumental goal as a whole. Instead, cut it up into smaller goals to be achieved little by little. For example, daily to-do’s with 3-5 tasks can help you focus only on what you need to get done each day.

You can also make a Have Done list each day. It might feel redundant, and like you are just rewriting the previously mentioned list. However, we often get lots of other minimally important tasks done and do not give ourselves credit for it. This will be a reminder that even on the days when you feel the least productive and motivated, you have still gotten a lot done. 

Rewards:

Remember how you felt right before you took your vacation? The anticipation and exhilarating feelings building up? You should try to recreate at least a similar feeling. You will definitely be motivated through focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel. 

So what drives you? The holiday’s, time with family, another vacation, or simply just some free time? Think, define and focus on that driving force. As soon as you are through with your responsibilities at the end of the year, it will be there waiting for you.

Distractions: 

It is easy to fall into the traps of a good distraction, especially if everyone else around you is also doing. This is why you have to be proactive in recognizing and avoiding them.

Sometimes it is the weekly happy hour, which forces everyone to leave work an hour early on Friday’s. Sometimes it is the extra long coffee break that you and your coworkers take each day. Sometimes it is the always tempting social media sites. Whatever it may be, if it is distracting you during work hours, it has to go. Alternatively, allow yourself to enjoy those once the workday officially ends.

Re-evaluate: 

Sometimes it is not just about the actions, but what you are trying to accomplish in the first place. It is important to revisit previously established goals with a critical. Things change and so may your priorities too. Therefore, it is important to ensure that your last bit of energy is being put towards the goals you should be working towards.

Ask yourself what your true priorities are. Make a game plan and use these tools to prepare for downfalls. Keep looking forward and happy work!
