Getting off the slide.
Let’s assume that you work. You do something every day. One or multiple things, doesn’t matter. You just do them.
And then you decide to go to the holiday. For one week, you don’t do anything, although you may have time for that. Let’s say you write a blog and then you decide that for 1 week you pause it.
And what can happen?
You “get off the slide”. Call it how you like. You get my point.
You get used to not doing things. And it may be hard to get back on.
I’m not saying that you should not rest and enjoy your holiday. Just live your life that you can work and rest together. Enjoy your work. Enjoy your life. Do not hide from work. Yes, I know, easy to say. But if you never try and think that it’s only possible for lucky ones, you’ll never achieve happiness.
Enjoy your work.
I believe everyone has had those experiences when after vacation it takes a lot of time to get used to working again.
I totally get that we are all different. We live in a different environment. We have different jobs. Different possibilities.
But do yourself a favor – just try to figure something out so you can enjoy your work (even a little bit more) and do something you don’t have to run away. Have that courage to face the truth and make hard decisions. Anyone else isn’t going to change your life. You have to do it.
And then it’s okay to rest. To enjoy your vacation. See the world. Rest the mind. So you can be looking forward to work again with new energy.
Your work has to motivate you.
It’s not fun to have a holiday when you know that after 1 week your job that you hate is waiting for you, isn’t it?
“If you live for the weekend & vacations, your shit is broken.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
If you’re going to spend a large portion of your life waking up and going to work, make sure it’s something you love doing or find something else to do.
It’s okay to work from Monday to Friday and rest on Saturday & Sunday, but it’s not okay to suffer first 5 days to rest from that stress other 2 days. The 5-2 exchange isn’t a good deal.
Just figure out what you can change so you can work when you want and rest when you want. Remember that one shouldn’t exclude the other.
