I completely agree! I need routine and structure. I can create it for myself, but it takes me at least a few weeks to start up. It's very disorienting to have the school year routine removed so abruptly. Plus, there's the thought that you can do all those fun things now that you've been putting off, and they take up more time than you expect.

If these are our problems, life is sweet indeed.

On the merits, though, every person needs to figure out the balance they want to strike between further productivity and much-needed R&R. Given that, it's hard to know what it means to "master" the transition: For some that will mean taking a month off, and for others that will mean working just as hard as before. It all depends on what balance you want to strike.


My recommendation, for what it's worth: set definite schedules for yourself or at least a clear set of tasks for the day (e.g. writing, researching, preparing for next semester's class). Lay out plans that are realistic but err on the side of the impossible, and then the transition into summer productivity will be more smooth.
