Top 5 Things You Dread About Returning to Work After Vacation

Let’s face it, taking a vacation is a great way to relax and unwind and take a breather.  You enjoy not having to work.  You enjoy the calm and not having to rush about and be scheduled.  However, vacation ends and you have to get back to reality.   So a day or two before vacation ends you start to dread the return, and all that stress you relieved on vacation, rushes back in a second.

Here are the top 5 things you dread when returning to work after vacation.


Turning on an Alarm



Turning that alarm clock off is a great thing.  You don’t have to worry about setting an alarm when you are on vacation.  You can sleep in,  but when vacation is over, turning on that alarm switch physically hurts.



The Pile of Work that Awaits You



You’ve been gone from work, and most of the time you don’t have a back up.  All that work you missed on your week off has been slowly piling up on your desk.  As the thought of all that work creeps in, your stress level creeps up.



Emails and Voicemails



Your morning will be spent answering the hundreds of emails you ignored all week long.   It will probably take at least 10 minutes for them all to load.  So as you are waiting for your emails to download you can listen to the 20 voicemails you have to return.



Coworkers Trying to Catch You Up on Office Gossip



All you want to do is jump and and start on that pile of work that has been building on your desk, but you have those coworkers who insist on catching you up on the office gossip.



Finding all the Things People Moved or “Borrowed” While You Were Gone



Your stapler is missing.  Your files are out of order.  Your coffee cup has disappeared.  You find yourself on a scavenger hunt for your things.
