It’s the last day of my two-week vacation. And I’m anxious to be back tomorrow.
Not excited. Anxious.
Because I know what is waiting for me. I and couldn’t relax over the last few days because of it. I should have never checked my email. Will know better next time.
I shouldn’t feel this way. Work should be exciting and full of meaning. Not emotionally draining before even entering the office or starting the workday.
This is not sustainable by any accounts.
I shouldn’t expect any differently. I mean, nothing would have changed during my two weeks out. As this Forbes article says, there are two reasons why this dread exists:
- Something positive is missing.
- There’s too much of something negative.
In my case, it’s both. So the outcome doesn’t look too optimistic.
The best thing to do is try to ease back into things, but I know that’s going to be challenging, but it’s still my best option here.
We’ll see how it goes. For now, I’ll just try to get a good night’s rest.
