It's blissful to get away from it all. The getting home part? Not so much. After weeks of sightseeing, the only sight you see now is a mountain of luggage, laundry, and work to catch up on. It's all too easy to fall into a major funk. After all, your vacation lifestyle is quite a sharp contrast to the realities waiting for you back home. If you're like most people, you need a little help easing back into everyday life.
While it's tempting to maximize your vacation and return to the daily grind without missing a beat, don't do this! Make sure you schedule some breathing room in between your return and your re-entry. If possible, build in at least one day to rest, replenish food in the fridge, do laundry and get back into the swing of things.
