No one likes coming back from vacation and returning to the real world, full of work and stress, and the 5 Stages of Vacation Grief infographic demonstrates those feelings perfectly.

This beyond hysterical chart by Buzzfeed writer Amy Sly is a handy way to recognize each of the symptoms of post-vacation grief that you may be suffering. The stages are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance.

My personal favorite stage of the 5 Stages of Vacation Grief chart is Depression: "The It's All Meaningless Stage", which includes the description: "Ugh, this desk again? Was it always so dark in here? Oh, what does it matter if it's bright or dark? It's all the same. Every day the same as the last."
