10 Ways to Beat the Back to Work Blues

September 03, 2015 3 min read

There are a few things worse than the first day back in the office after a week or two of vacation! After lounging by the pool with Mai-Tai's and gorgeous heat, that Monday of heading back to your cramped cubicle or stuffy workstation holds little appeal. But thankfully, we've got a few ways for you to beat your "back to work blues". Trust me, with these tips, you'll have no trouble surviving your first days at the office:

A New Look

You've just spent a week getting a nice tan, so you've got that golden-brown skin color that goes brilliantly with smoky eyes and deep ruby lipstick. Why not try a new look and give your co-workers a glimpse at the new you? [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="763"] Source: fitnesskites.com[/caption]

A New Outfit

Summer is over, meaning the cold is just around the corner! No need to go full-on parkas and overcoats just yet--instead, try an outfit like the elegant, classy one below: [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="628"] Source: fashionnhome.com/[/caption]

A New Pair of Shoes

Who doesn't love a bit of retail therapy to soothe the horror of having to get back to work? This pair of Cocolico Ndakinna clogs matches with your awesome work-chic outfit, pairing nicely with both summer and early winter clothes.

A New TV Show

Nothing like a good TV show to take your mind off the drudgery of being back at your desk! If you haven't started Netflix's Orange is the New Black, it's definitely time to join the millions of others who make smart decisions. The story is clever, the characters are fascinating, and the cast is brilliant--these three seasons will keep your mind occupied.

A New Book

What better way to drown out the "back to work blues" than a brand new book that will take you on a journey into a fantasy world? Don't expect unicorns, dwarves, and fairies; this is a dark, twisted tale guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat. Demons, assassins, mayhem, and murder--could it get more exciting?

A New Brand of Coffee

Yes, you may be a staunch Starbucks supporter, but why not break the routine? You know the swill they serve at the office just isn't any good! Death Wish Coffee is known as "The World's Strongest Coffee", and the Fair Trade, Kosher, USDA-certified coffee beans will kick your work into overdrive on your first day back.

A New Hobby

Sick of spending all your time indoors? Why not spend your weekends doing something totally new and crazy--LARPing (Live Action Role Playing)? It's a hella-fun way to get out, meet new people, and engage in a little escape from real life! Or, to go a different direction, why not try your hand at a bit of cosplay? Don't knock it until you try it! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="636"] Source: kotaku.com[/caption]

A New Workout Routine

You've rocked that bikini body all summer long, but no time to rest on your laurels. You've got to get back on the horse and push yourself hard in preparation for Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Dinner, all your New Years Eve drinking, and the chilly months when your motivation drops. BodyRock has got your back on this one? Take up (whatever new workout program is pushing) and get the results you want!

A New Healthy Dish

Autumn is when all the colorful veggies come out to play, so it's time to get creative with your cooking! With so many variations of summer squashes, root veggies, and leafy greens, you can have a lot of fun with new foods. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Source: thelatinkitchen.com[/caption] Why not try one of Cooking Light's amazing fall recipes and expand your palate the healthy way?

A New Supplement

After all that drinking, eating, and partying over the holidays, it's time to give your body a break! Probiotics will help you to restore a balance to your digestive system. The beneficial bacteria in kefir can do wonders to get your digestion back on track and keep you healthy as you adjust to "normal" eating habits once more.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
