058: Catching up after a vacation
I am back from a 10 day vacation outside of the country. I’ve had a blast and was able to completely disconnect. Today is the first day back to work.
I am curious if you have any suggestions or tips on what hacks you have after a long vacation?
Here are my hacks:
- Come back a day earlier. I was home on Saturday evening and had all Sunday to catch up on sleep (big jet lag, 10 hour difference with Europe), to do laundry and buy groceries.
- Check your credit card bank accounts. Although wifi is free throughout Europe, I didn’t want to take the risk and login into my accounts while abroad. I mostly used cash for purchases, but did charge a few transactions on a credit card. I just want to make sure nothing unusual was going on.
- I did check my emails every day and created a special folder for what I will have to do today. Even though I was completely disconnected, I didn’t want to come back to a pile of unread emails.
