People that experience post-vacation depression often describe feelings of apathy, frustration, melancholy, irritability, uncertainty, insecurity and anxiety.

How to deal with post-vacation depression?

1. Make a list of priorities;
Stay organised. Review the obligations and task that await you and order them by priority. Set daily or weekly goals. Be realistic and kind to yourself.

2. Plan your return for the middle of the week
If you return to work on a Wednesday or Thursday the week will pass more quickly and you'll have more time to prepare during the weekend. Over the weekend, focus on rest and relaxation.

3. Limit consumption of alcohol and coffee
Sometimes we think that drinking to relax can't hurt, but after the relaxing effect of alcohol dissipates, it can cause us to experience negative emotions more deeply. Coffee can heighten anxiety and has a negative affect on sleep quality. If you need something to raise your energy levels, we recommend physical activity.
