Breaks for summer, winter, spring, and even weekends and holidays are a vital part of our life and work cycles. But what happens when we need to get back into our daily routines? How might we achieve the transition with compassion and care? One way to approach the return to work life is to recall how you made the transition to the break. What excitement and anticipation did you experience or encourage? Look for ways to create that same anticipation for your return to school and work.
