11 Tips for Rejoining the Workforce After a Career Break

How to Transition Back Into the Workforce After an Absence

9. Get Your Body Ready

Your first month may impinge on longstanding healthy habits such as gym workouts and running, walking or cycling. You'll eventually fit it all together again, but anticipate a few misses in the first few weeks.

Launch yourself at peak condition for the challenges ahead by being especially faithful with fitness in your last unattached days. Don't overdo to the point of uncomfortable muscle soreness, but aim to be your prime physical self as you go into this new endeavor. Think through workarounds for the nights your regular regimen proves impossible. Incorporate stress relief, a metabolic boost, and life enhancing endorphins via exercise to ease your potentially taxing transition time.
