The top 10 ways to crank it up again

Back from a week’s vacation and I run through my usual routine:
1. walk in the door
2. check the mail (no nasties)
3. check emails (no nasties)
4. breath a sigh of relief
5. unpack toiletries into bathroom (I’m so neat and tidy)
6. unpack laundry and load washing machine
7. unpack large pile of unworn clothing and re-hang back in wardrobe (I always pack too much)
8. visit supermarket and buy healthy food after holiday commitment to improve diet
9. call my Mother and say “hi”
10. call Team CB and check in on what’s been happening (breath sigh of relief)
and then prepare to jump back into the reality of professional life.
