Editorial: Beat the back-to-work blues

This week, many New Zealanders will have gone back to work after what may feel like an all-too-brief summer break.

It can certainly feel like hard yakka: ditching the beachwear for more formal attire, forgoing a welcome lie-in to beat the traffic in for an early start, and then being office-bound for eight hours or more, glued to a phone and/or computer screen, watching the sun beat down on the other side of the glass, stuck back with those annoying colleagues you were only too happy to see the back of last year and a boss keen on cracking the whip and making up for lost production time.

All too soon it can feel like the long, lazy, hazy days of summer are but a dim, distant memory, and it's back to the daily grind for another whole year.

Yup, it's the back-to-work blues at........
