Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Gentle Re-entry
One thing we have learned after taking a break from the routine or going on vacation is to be gentle with ourselves when resuming our regular schedules. Re-entering your work space or home life if you were on a “staycation” can be jarring enough right at the 6:00 am alarm clock. Get your day started right by reminding yourself often to take it easy and go slow. Remembering to keep a mindful attitude acts as a way to extend your vacation attitude as well. Why rush through the day? Can you find a way to meet your deadlines in a relaxed mental state? Give yourself the gift of gentleness this week and remember to pause and smile. It will be contagious to those around you!
