GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) — You had a long holiday weekend and it was glorious. You slept in late, you did what you wanted when you wanted, and the last thing you were thinking about was heading back to work on Tuesday. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. After a long holiday weekend, here are three tips to help you ease back into work.

1. Take your time getting back to work
Catch up and get organized. You can’t be productive when you’re constantly scrambling. Put your office phone on do not disturb, ignore non-essential emails and get caught up so you can be productive the rest of the work week.

2. Say thanks if appropriate
If someone was covering for you while you were away, be sure to stop by their work space or shoot them an email and say thanks. It’ll be much appreciated and they will likely cover for you again if needed.
