After the fun and frolic of holidays, it’s never easy to get back into a routine. And you probably can’t agree more if you’re among those of us who just returned from a glorious three day Hari Raya weekend.

From the backlog of emails to nonstop meetings and events, sometimes your body is at the office while your mind is still enjoying that beach breeze and delicious rum punch.

But making the tricky shift from leave to labour doesn’t have to be a total drag, not if you plan ahead and give yourself permission to gently ease into the transition.

And this is why Medway Leisure Travel came up with an infographic outlining six simple ways of reboosting your system and making it ready for work.

Staying in working shape was listed as the the best way of beating the back-to-work blues in the infographic, with 79% of employees saying mental and impersonal performance was better on days they exercised.

The statistic isn’t surprising, considering the benefits of exercising regularly are vast and well-known. But if you’re anything like me, you’ll probably only get time to exercise after an entire work day, and reap the benefits of an active body only later on.

My favourite tip, however, is to plan more holiday after returning back from one.

According to the report, planning your next holiday can boost happiness for up to eight weeks – so why not use the day you get back to work to plan for your next break?

There’s nothing worse than feeling you’ve got nothing left to look forward to, so pinpoint a weekend or a few days in the distant future which you can take off.

Here’s the full infographic below:
