Summer is here. You have been working hard all year and you deserve a break. It is a great time for a vacation. While enjoying your free time, for sure you will try to get your mind off work. But when you get back from holidays, you'll need to continue with everyday activities. Work continued without you, so you need to get on track with everything that happened while you were away.
A lot of work probably has piled up during your absence and it's now waiting to be completed. Your inbox is full, your notes are filled with information, and you calendar is packed with meetings schedules. Also, summer is almost over and you'll need to prepare for autumn. So much work, but not so much time. Since we live in a digital age, we can get some needed help. Luckily, there are a lot of tools that can make your tasks easier and make you more efficient. Here are five of them that can help you boost your productivity:

It is probably hard to get back to work after vacation. We all have been there. You need to find the way to motivate yourself to get the job done.
