Is it ever this way for you? Your week keeps throwing things at you until you suddenly arrive at Friday and realize you didn’t get the normal, important things done?

I once read a report that stated it takes at least a day to de-stress in order to enjoy a vacation and another day to sufficiently recover from a vacation to be ready to go back to work. That's two days that really aren't vacation days. How can you get those two days back?  Better yet, how can you have a worry-free getaway from the practice? 

If you really want to make the most of your time off you'll have to apply the same planning and management skills to your vacation as you do in your practice.

The tips below will help you prepare to be gone and ensure you don't find a train wreck when you get back.

It’s been a tough week. Admit it, you were ready for Friday at 2:30 on Tuesday when you were wondering if you could escape to Starbucks before the next office crisis.

Then Wednesday and Thursday hit in sync with the latest virus. Patients were calling in droves for appointments while staff was calling in sick. All the while your deadlines kept pushing forward like anxious teens in line for the latest boy band concert.


Speaking of anxious teens…yours are texting, snap chatting, and throwing constant digital messages about their weekend plans without regard to yours, “Who’s driving, I need money (smiley face icon), can I go out with Bruno, I need the car tonight (a double smiley face with a cute puppy icon), when will you be home, what is there to eat, and you are so hot, I can’t wait to see you at the game…oops, sorry mom, that wasn’t meant for you.”

Congratulations, you’ve made it to the weekend and a much deserved break from the office. Can we encourage you to tuck some time away just for yourself this weekend? You may still be focused on work for the next few hours but consider some tips for making your weekend great. And what’s best is that all our suggestions are free or nearly free depending on how you decide to pursue them. And one of them includes the chance to walk away with a $50 movie card from your favorite local cinema. Here’s to the weekend!!
