It’s easy to feel overwhelmed on your first day back in the office after a long holiday weekend. Don’t panic, grab a cup of coffee and take some deep breaths! Once you’re ready, try these three tips to help you dive back in and feel more productive than ever:
- Prioritize your to-do list: The first thing you should do after a long weekend is prioritize your task list and plan out your day by focusing on one item at a time. As publicists at a PR agency you’re used to managing multiple clients, but bouncing around from client to client can leave you with multiple half-completed jobs and nothing crossed off your list at the end of the day.
- Put on your headphones: While it’s great to start your day out on a positive note, it’s important not to lose track of time. To help minimize distractions, put on your headphones and find a playlist geared toward focus and productivity. Music isn’t your thing? Another option is to wear headphones and pretend to listen to music to avoid the temptation to swap stories from the weekend with coworkers.
- Mentally recover: Whether you’re a yogi that feels revitalized from Vinyasa or a firm believer in sweating out the weekend with a high intensity cardio workout, be sure to let your mind and body regroup from your time off. At Konnect we constantly stress the importance of taking care of your mind, body and soul! A clear mind will help you to focus and feel energized to get you through the remainder of the week.
