Back to work after a one week vacation…

Yes, the output of yet another one of my personal “lab tests”…

  2. Good morning David,

    That looks about like how my vacation stress levels go too. Usually about 3 or 4 days before going back to work I start to stress about all the things I could have done and start asking myself did I get all the things I needed to get done and then comes the “ahhhhhhh, I don’t want to go back to work blues” and so on. Have a great week.

  4. The answer to that is NOT to take a holiday 😉

  9. I think you’ve pegged it just right. Even without a holiday, I remember feeling that way every Sunday – dreading Monday. And I liked my job!

  11. Sounds like a good time to cut yourself some slack, David. No worries, you’ll get back into your stride soon enough. Glad you had a few stressed-less days. Hope you have an encouraging week!

  13. 1 week vacation is not a vacation to me David. Less than 10 days is torture 🙂 I average around 30 days over the past 5 years with a 28 spot on the way 🙂 I love your technical posts.

  14. I have wondered in the past if these beginning and ending elevated stress levels are truly worth a vacation period!

  15. I quit taking long vacations about a decade ago so I never have to go through that. Rather, I schedule a little mini-vacation each and every day. Keeps me relaxed and refreshed at all times. Of course, I’m lucky to live in San Diego where there is an abundance of mini-vacations just a few miles away from my home.

  17. Hence the need to take longer vacations!

    In May we did something that worked out well. My husband has a crazy NYT editor’s job (6 meetings every day) and I work alone at home freelance. We took one week, drove south to friends and stayed in a cottage at the water’s edge in VA, came home for a week — then two weeks off for me in AZ while he worked there. That was the best two weeks I’ve had in a long, long time. I came home completely refreshed….thanks to three factors: I did not touch a computer for five days; I had my assistant run interference when a client suddenly needed me while I was at the Grand Canyon; I spent 4 days at the GC in silence and nature. That helps!
