Post vacation workloads are stressing out professionals. We all know that vacations are like stress busters for working people and they return to work refreshed and full of energy. But these days the scene has completely changed.


The majority of the workers find it tough and stressful when they get back to work after a vacation. Heavy work load after vacation has lead to workers having a serious headache and high blood pressure. Psychologist, Dr. Seema Hingorani says, “It is better to plan your work beforehand when you are going on vacation. This way you will not get drained out with too much work.”


Sunayna Chatterjee, an IT professional from Vizag says, “Whenever I get back from a holiday, I have lots of work piled up for me. I have to work over time for at least two weeks to get everything done. I remember when I returned from my summer vacation last year I fell seriously ill because of work pressure. During those days I would hardly get time to sleep and eat.”


Most of the organizations do not have somebody to take charge of a person’s work when they leave on vacation. Dr Hingorani adds, “Today’s work culture is such that nobody is willing to take ownership of somebody else work. So it is always better to organize your work before you leave for a vacation and at the same time it is important to keep yourself updated about what is happening in your office even when you are on a vacation.”


One should always remember that one should not stress oneself during and after vacation and at the same time think positively. Work is an important part of our life. If we are without work we will feel all the more depressed and stressed out and at the same time without work you cannot afford to enjoy a vacation.
