The First Day Back

The 2K11 24/7 CLXXIV

Sometimes you’ve gotta go the short but sweet route.

We’ve all had those first days back to work that weren’t QUITE what we’d expected.

The first day back is ALWAYS the hardest. After being away from a job for a while and having some sense of freedom from routine, you need to get back in the swing of things, and often FAR more quickly than you’d like.

But you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do.

So what do you do when you get sucker-punched by missing lunch? (Stay with me here—it was a busy day, hence no time for lunch!)

  • Keep your friends close
  • Talk about it
  • Do some physical activity
  • Do something you love
  • Get some rest

Try one or more of these, and I think the next unexpected day you have will be a LITTLE bit easier.

As for me, I’m off to try the last one.
