I think the situation is familiar to many: you came from vacation, got tanned, rested, and then went to work and after a couple of days there was a feeling that you did not leave or rest anywhere. And until the next holiday another year. Or you just returned, and the feeling is that now you need more time to take a break from your holiday. But time does not wait, they demand your presence at work. Today we are talking about how to relax "wisely" so that the vacation is not tedious, and also decide how to properly go to work after it.
Leave size matters
Immediately I recall the advice of doctors of the Soviet period that the vacation should not be shorter than 21 days. Where does this figure come from? Of course, there are also medical indications for such a length of the vacation period, but there is also a purely psychological justification: the fact is that it takes approximately three weeks for our consciousness to reorganize in a new way. For example, if you want to develop some kind of habit (for example, do exercises in the morning), then you need just 21 days for our psyche to get used to this fact and begin to take it for granted.Therefore, in fact, in order to begin to consider yourself rested, you need to be in a state of relaxation for about 21 days.
However, let's not forget that it takes more time to “get out” of this state and get into work. Therefore, be sure to plan your vacation so that you have at least 2-3 days left when you return home from the resort, but still do not take up your work responsibilities. If you are resting with a child, it is better to stock up on a 4-5 day period.
