12 Struggles of Coming Back to Work After the Festive Season



We think there is one thing we can all unanimously agree on – coming back to work from extended time off can be a struggle. The thought of putting pants back on and returning to your status as a productive member of society is the stuff of nightmares. 

For anyone just not quite feeling ready for the week, we’ve put together a visual representation of the 12 stages of heading back to the office.
