If you’re like me you’re struggling with post-vacation blues. Days without having a set schedule; hours to dedicate towards anything your heart desires — these anticipated out-of-office days without prior commitments seem to be more and more longed for, especially as the year leads into the holiday season. Pero, amiga, it’s not winter break yet.

Unfortunately, we have a few months before most of us hit that already-long-awaited-for winter break. On the bright side, the last few months of the year are usually the jolliest and most festive spent with family and loved ones. 

So, let’s shake off those post-vacation blues and lean towards a happy and cheerful mood to get back into our regular routines as we make way for fall and winter.

Ways to get back to our routine include tidying up our space, making a list of what needs to get done for a more consistent and all-around healthier atmosphere, and of course, making sure we take care of our mental health. But what helps the process of checking off these items above? How about listening to good tunes?

To help with the transition, here’s a diverse and genre-bending playlist to help you with your post-vacation blues. 

¡Ándale, ánimo!
