The Easter holiday is finally upon us and we couldn't be more excited about the break.

Being the first major holiday since Christmas, it's expected that by now, many folks are worn-out from the months of hard work especially when you throw in the current hardship of the Nigerian economy to the mix.

Long weekends however can be tricky. It's not unusual for workers to feel a sense of unfulfillment by the end of a holiday, as they're left wondering how the days went by so quickly and what they did with the time.

Therefore, to make the most of this holiday, we've put together a checklist to ensure you don't fall into this category but rather wake up Tuesday morning re-energised and ready to conquer.

1. Finish every necessary work task: The last thing you need while on holiday is to worry about the half-finished tasks on your to-do list. So, if you don't have to work during the holiday, do yourself a favour and complete all impending tasks ahead of time so you're free and focused on enjoying your break.

2. Plan ahead: It is said that to fail to plan is to plan to fail. This is no different with a holiday. It's important that you have a checklist of things you want to do with the holiday and plan each activity ahead of time. This way you make each day count and by the end of the weekend, you feel a sense of accomplishment.

3.  Have a clear goal you want to achieve with the break: Again just as with any task, a goal is important. Have something you want to achieve with the break and be focused about achieving it. Your holiday goal could be to rest thoroughly, in which case you know not to do anything that could jeopardise it like leaving work tasks unfinished. It could also be reconnecting with loved ones, catching up on your favourite series or even making progress with your side hustle. Whatever it is, identify your Easter holiday goal early on and face it head on.

4. Start immediately: Remember there's no time to waste so get into the holiday from the very first day. If resting is your plan, then get to it from Thursday evening same with socialising or catching up with your side hustle. This is because if you put it off you could quickly lose a grip on things. So get to your holiday task from the onset.

5. Leave the last day for rest: Whatever you do, don't get too caught up with activities on the last day before work. Make sure you rest well the day before work resumes, this way you wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and ready for work.

6. Enjoy yourself: Whatever you're doing at any given point during the holiday, make sure it is something you're enjoying doing. The whole point of a break is to relax and let loose.
