Let's go back to work
Eid is over but the holiday mood hasn't left us alone yet. Most of the people have already come back to the city and started attending their workplace but some of us are still dawdling. But remember that the last Eid vacation was about a week long, and within these seven days all the economic activities of the country were at standstill, so for the betterment of this nation let's get back to work with full up oomph.
Those of you who haven't come back home yet, be careful while packing your baggage. Check if you have put everything in your bags especially money, clothes and jewellery.
After you come back home, unbolt the windows and doors of your house to let in fresh air. If you have houseplants in collection, start taking extra care of these sensitive living beings along with other household chores. Don't forget to dust your floor and fixtures & wash your crocks before you start making food for your family members. The interior of your home must be thoroughly cleaned and made liveable after any long vacation.
You must have consumed loads of rich foods over the past 2 weeks, so it's time you checked your weight. Resort to fresh vegetables, fruits and low-carb foods to get back to your original stature. Avoid red meat and fizzy drinks for a while.
Most of us become kind of lethargic after such a long holiday. But please try to avoid it. The country has incurred enough economic loss on the occasion of this Eid holiday, so let's make up to it by giving extra effort at work- we can always chit-chat during the lunch break or after the office hours.
If you have small children at home then you must know that many a kid hate to go back to their school life after any long break, so try your best to bring back their concentration in lessons by helping them with their schoolwork.
Take a look at your refrigerator and discard the items, which you think, have become adulterated during your absence, namely fruits and vegetables.
The vacation had indeed been refreshing but it's time to go back to work, so say a big Goodbye to the holiday mood and start working with fresh vigour.

By the way
Are you in an abusive relationship?
It starts with pushing or shoving, which inevitably leads to hitting. Name-calling is also a part of the abuser, such usage of abusive language dehumanise the person being abused.
If you are in an abusive relationship you will suffer from lowered self esteem, internalized anger which turns into depression and more than likely some anxiety (a feeling of always walking on egg shells). Do a comparison on how you felt before the relationship and how your partner has made you feel now. And just remember, if you made it before without him, you can make it again.
