Getting away is blissful. Coming home? Not so much. The Unpacking, laundry, catching up on emails, etc, etc. Insanely tiring!! 

Need some tips to get back into everyday routine? 

1. Do prep work before you leave your home for your holiday. Do some tidying, vacuuming of floors, make your bed, empty the trash can, etc. This is going to help you instantly feel organized and get back to reality.

I personally feel that the healthcare field is one that is deeply fulfilling and also one where there is constantly room for us to make improvement and utilize our skills to make people better. Rather than persistently thinking of getting post vacation blues, I would suggest that one changes their mindset about work, explore elements of improvement that one has not gone through before....

I normally go on a holiday every 3-4 months to avoid post vacation blues. Each trip I will take 3-4 months to plan. Hence I will be planning for vacation forever. When i return from each vacation, I will start visiting the tourist spot in my own country to dampen the effect of post vacation blues. Going on holiday does not have to be some fanciful place. I like to go on a budget 3 times a year and have a lucrative one once a year. We only have a short life span and this world is a huge one, ther...
