Research tells us that post-holiday blues endure for an average of five days and one in eight workers admit it can take them ten days to return to work mode after a break. This may be your experience at this time of year after being on holiday and with schools about to start again. On holiday we can feel like our true selves, free from the strains and stresses of everyday work and life. They can be times when we remember the spiritual dimension and have special experiences that remind us of God. In fact holidays are extra-ordinary. They are wonderful, but they are exceptional. Everyday working (if we are employed), family (if we have one) life is the norm. That is where we must learn to know God's presence with us. Visiting St Edmundsbury Cathedral can help you discover that God is always present, even in the everyday stuff that often distracts us from the Divine.
