Welcome back everyone! We at DMS hope you all had a wonderful holiday (so much so that perhaps you’re dreading digging into that work you left on your work desk on Dec. 18). In the spirit of ushering in a productive 2014, we thought we’d help make the transition a bit easier with five helpful tips for beating the holiday blues.

Get in a good workout. Listened to some great music on your vacation? Make an upbeat playlist and use it for your workout, says The Huffington Post. Making time for physical activity can calm your mind and help you focus.

Go out for lunch, says this Daily Telegraph article. Grab a friend and get away from your desk for an hour, which will break up the day so it doesn’t feel so overwhelming.

Take it slow. Don’t try to tackle your entire inbox all at once, you may never get out. Instead, the Huffington Post says to get back to the people who need immediate answers first. Then finish up any projects you left hanging before the break. After that, tackle anything new. And remember, you might not be able to get to everything, so expect to leave work for the next day.

Take on something new, says the Daily Telegraph. Setting a goal to start a new project, or learn that skill you’ve been meaning to master can help you look ahead for the new year.

Book another vacation. Seems counterproductive right? Well, this Guardian article says planning some days off or booking a flight for that next trip can give you something to look forward to.

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you

    be giving us something informative to read?

  6. Our first couple’s massage experience:Upon arrival at the salon we checked in with the assistant with the service counter who notified the masseuse that we had arrived
    for our appointment. Change the gap, pressure and speed
    of your movements and watch the receiver for indications of
    ale. The purpose of an massage would be to soothe and relax the muscles and connective
    tissues inside the body or deliver sexual gratification.

  7. Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who would like to

  9. The hardest issue usually turns out to be discovering the perfect way to stay motivated until the benefits become apparent.
    Do not restrict growth and bore your students with monotonous Martial Arts drills
    for kids once you can add beneficial Martial Arts Games into your lesson plans to rapidly
    improve their learning of your Martial Art. If you don’t fancy monster hunting or questing with
    other players there is always the clan war.

  10. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be
    awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
