Five Ways to Beat the Post Holiday Blahs

Lets face itan awful lot of workplaces go into holiday mode right after Thanksgiving. What with the 3-day weekends, the half-day-before-the-three-day-weekend, and the short-day-because-its-the-office-party day, its hard to get back to a five-day workweek with nary a holiday in sight. Here are some suggestions for chasing the post holiday blahs.

1. Rededicate yourself to your job.
2. Dont sweat the job; plan your next vacation.
3. Join a gym. Yes, it will be crowded with all the other get-in-shape for the New Year new members, but at least youll have some company.
4. Catch up with a friend over drinks. Emphasis here is on friends, not the drinking. You probably had enough of that last month.
5. Do somethinganythingnew. Take a class, get a pet, volunteer. Shake things up before you fall into a winter slump.
