Top tips to getting back into the swing of things post-Christmas

The leftovers have been eaten, you can't bear to look at another mince pie and you've returned that horrid jumper your nan gave you, that can only mean one thing: Christmas is officially over.

It's time to head back to our desks and attempt to stick to all your "New Year, new you" promises. It can be hard to settle back into your usual routine, so we've compiled a list of our top tips to get you back in the swing of things post Christmas.

Catch some zzzs

Late nights, lazy mornings, post-meal naps? At christmas it's easy for our sleep cycles to change as we fill up on festive spirit (and mince pies), however it can be difficult to get back into our normal sleep patterns. Try avoiding screens and caffeine before you sleep, and be really strict about waking up (that means no snooze button...) to try and get your body back to it's non-festive rhythm.

Stay on top of your to-do list

Returning to work after the Christmas break can be daunting, your inbox is bursting and you can’t bear to look at the growing list of things you need to do. The most important thing to do is not stress out (too hard). Break each task down into smaller chunks and they'll seem far more manageable.

Your body is a temple

Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it certainly is the most indulgent, meaning when January starts many of us are looking to treat our bodies better. Try snacking on healthy foods like fruit and nuts, that'll keep you going longer than sugary snacks.

Give yourself something to look forward to

When you're in the office for what seems like all the daylight hours it's important to give yourself something to look forward to. Plan treats for yourself for after work - maybe go for dinner with a friend or start bingeing a TV show everyone is talking about. Being excited for post-work plans will get you through the day easier (and give you an incentive to finish your work on time)

Get some fresh air

Don't spend your whole day at your desk, make the most of your lunch break by going for a walk. The fresh air will not only give your mind some time to take a break from work stress, but it will also keep you refreshed for the afternoon.
