Say No to New Projects When You First Get Back from Vacation

Getting back to work from a vacation is tough, and it's even worse when people are hounding you to get started on something. Levo League suggests you say no to any new projects for the first day you're back to maintain your sanity.

Coming back from vacation is often stressful and you spend most of your time catching up. So, it's pretty hard to take on anything new. Levo League suggests you say no to new projects, but schedule a time to talk about it more:

You'll have plenty on your plate (with very little time to eat anything that requires a plate) without adding new things to worry about. It's ok to respond with dates and times to speak about those projects to begin the planning stage, but putting them into action on day one when you're back will only add to the anxiety you woke up with.

It's a pretty simple idea, but it can save your sanity for a day or two. Otherwise, just try your best to hit the ground running.
