IT takes at least three days to ‘get back to normal’ after a holiday, a study has found.
Research revealed those who take a week off to jet to sunnier climes and relax by the pool take around 72 hours to get back into the swings of things once again.
And that time increases to four days for a two-week break.
The study also found it takes two nights for our sleeping pattern to get back to normal while battling jet lag and getting over late nights and long lie-ins on holiday.
The research was commissioned by vitamin and supplement company Healthspan, on whose behalf psychologist Dr Meg Arroll said: “Taking time to unwind and relax is vital for overall physical and mental health, but many people may struggle pre and post-holiday.
The study of 2,000 adults who holiday abroad found six in 10 believe getting used to the morning routine is the hardest part of re-joining everyday life after a trip away.
Four in 10 also admitted feeling anxious about going back to work after a holiday, with a quarter taking extra days of annual leave to ease themselves back into life.
So go ahead, feel sluggish and uninspired today, study’s say you’re more than entitled to it!
