Preparing for vacation to disconnect

20 December 2021

After several months of non-stop work, you are impatiently waiting to go on vacation in the sun or on the ski slopes, far from your files and colleagues. As your departure approaches, it’s often a rush to get everything done in time and not forget anything. Even if you choose the destination of your dreams, with friends or family in an idyllic setting, you won’t be able to fully enjoy your vacation if you haven’t properly prepared your departure, also at the office. How to organize yourself at the office to leave on vacation with a light mind? For a serene departure from work, where you will be able to spend a pleasant vacation well deserved, and therefore a confident return to the office.

I leave you with 5 things to do for a zen and efficient departure on vacation :

👉 Make a list of things to do before, during, and after your vacation.
This schedule will then be very useful when you return to get back into the swing of things more easily. And above all, allow you to disconnect, as everything is noted for your return, nothing will loop in your head during this well-deserved rest.

👉 Record your out-of-office message with your dates of absence from the office and the dates of your return.

👉 Tidy up your desk before you leave for vacation. Your return from vacation will be less painful because you’ll be happy to find your desk clean and tidy to start the new school year off right.

👉 During the vacations…
Only one instruction: relax to leave in top shape! Force yourself to completely unplug from work to regain a mental and family balance. Above all, don’t bring any files in your suitcases!
