You don’t want to think about your honeymoon drawing to a close, but eventually, reality will interrupt your cuddling. So how can you make the transition less rocky?

Here are five tips to help you prepare for work after your honeymoon.

1. Work on the Road

If you’re one of the many employees who are working from home amid the pandemic, why not invest in a mobile hotspot with your wedding cash?

If you have an RV, you have an entire mobile office. Plus, you can stop and take a quick hike while exploring the scenery before returning to work.

2. Give Yourself a Buffer

You don’t want to roll into town at 9 a.m. and have to make it to the office by noon. If possible, build buffer days into your honeymoon. A day or two at home can help you organize your gifts and get back in the office mindset.

3. Delegate, Delegate, Delegate

To make the most of this tip, start before you depart — find one person willing to check your email and another, your phone messages. That way, you don’t return to an overflowing inbox or spend hours listening to voicemail.

4. Prioritize Your Tasks

No matter how well you prepare, work will pile up on your desk. Your first task upon your return is to prioritize your load. Remember to account for distractions as you enter time estimates on your to-do list — people will still want to swing by your desk to issue congratulations.

5. Check-in With Your Supervisor

While your supervisor knows your departure and return dates, it still pays to reconnect. Set up a brief meeting where you can ask about anything you missed during your absence. Please pay attention to what they want you to tackle before anything else.

Prepare for Your Post-Honeymoon Return to Work Before Your Big Day

Returning to work after your honeymoon can feel like a cold splash of water rousing you from a pleasant dream. Make the transition to real-life after your big day less painful with these tips.
