Summer Bummer Syndrome

It's summer and that means most cubicle dwellers will be taking some time out to go on vacation. Awesome, right? Well, not exactly. The supposed benefits of getting out and hitting the beach, sleeping in a mountain cabin, or visiting the ruins of Rome come with one very debilitating reality: you have to come back. You just do. Vacations end. But real life doesn't, and this fact causes millions of cubicle dwellers across America to suffer from post-vacation depression. That feeling that the best week or two of the year is over, and what lies ahead is another 11 months of a predictable life in a drab cubicle environment.

What do you do to stave off Summer Bummer Syndrome upon returning to work?
