Much like going back to work after a long vacation , the Monday after a long weekend isn't always the easiest. If you had or took this past Friday off for the Fourth of July holiday, chances are you're in Summer vacation mode. Take this weekend to regroup before the workweek rolls around. That means going to sleep early on Sunday so you can get to work a little earlier on Monday to deal with any emails or impending projects. Even take a few minutes to tackle your to-do list for the week. Most importantly, make the most out of your days before you have to head to the office and, instead of dreading Monday morning, be thankful for the time off!
