Returning from vacation is an ideal time to take back the reins of your life with enthusiasm, reorganizing, establishing priorities and carrying out tasks optimally. It is a perfect time to return to stability. In this article we will explain how to face the return to the routine.
Surely, many of you have managed to have a few days off between the routine that deals with almost all of your time. You have managed to stop the train, to start it again, and it is necessary to attend to some adjustments to start the march again.
Sometimes you feel that life simply passes, and what you can only do is adapt to it, without being able to control times or speed, avoiding stops and not paying attention to people who pass by. Therefore, it is imperative to take the wheel and decide where to go.
As is normal, you will find situations that are unavoidable. Obligatory routines that are totally respectable, but there are many things you can stay in control of, no matter the circumstances. Keep in mind that in small changes you are in great progress.
Tips for returning to the routine after a vacation
Choose the activities that you are going to do in your daily life, you can also include those that you would like to do and those that you have pending because you have not had time to start them, for example, going to the gym, supporting your children with homework, taste new dishes, meditate, start a healthy diet, etc.
Decant for your priorities. You can make a list with five groups:
- Important: they are the ones that you should always attend and that are important to you: time for work, for example.
- Mandatory, but not important: These are the activities that are unavoidable but that are not important or priority, such as administrative tasks at home, some purchases, travel, etc).
- Mandatory and important: These are the activities that you should always attend to and that are also important to you: the time spent at work, for example.
- Not compulsory but important: these are activities that are not compulsory, but are presented as important to you: cooking, meditating, listening to music, going to the movies, spending time with your children, for example. They are the ones that give meaning to your life.
- Neither mandatory nor important: They are activities that do not contribute anything and that, in addition, steal time that could be used for other more beneficial tasks.
Create a schedule that covers the days of newspapers and another for the weekend.
