Bite size – is it wrong to prefer work over holidays?

Welcome to Bite Size – our bi-monthly blog where we explore a topic in bite size form – short, sharp and easy to digest

It’s January and we’ve just had Blue Monday, the so-called most depressing day of the year.

But I’m glad to be back at work. Whilst the Christmas festivities were fun and, don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy spending time with my friends and family, I’m glad to be back behind my desk. Working.

Enforced holiday makes me realise I like routine. I like knowing what I‘m doing every day. I want to be busy. I had 14 days of ‘relaxing’ but I wasn’t relaxed. In fact I was tense. I found myself feeling lazy and lacking in energy. I need to be busy.

I tried to motivate my family to do something every day but they were happy to pop on a movie and ‘chill out’. I don’t like ‘chilling out’. I like doing things. But I don’t think that’s a bad thing. There’s the phrase:

‘If you want something done, give it to a busy person’

Well I’m that busy person and I’m proud of it. So whilst everyone else is disappearing into a bottomless tin of Quality Street and watching another Christmas re-run, I’m being busy. And I like it.
