Have a Stress-free Holiday

Holiday time is fun and simultaneously stressful. Juggling your work and private life is challenging most days, but during the holidays, the pace speeds up. You have more to do than one human being can handle, and there’s less time to get it all done! It’s a perfect storm for short tempers and thin patience. Here are some tips to keep things from stealing your holiday joy.shutterstock_99376793

  • Make clear decisions about how you want to spend your time and money. Focus on what’s most important and don’t let little things ruin your peace of mind.
  • Just say no. Be assertive about declining activities you don’t have the bandwidth—or desire—to take on.
  • Ask for help. You don’t have to do everything by yourself. Ask your manager if your schedule can be more flexible during this time. Have family and friends pitch in at home and involve your family in planning and execution.
  • Make shopping easy! Use online retailers and have gifts wrapped and sent. If you’re braving brick-and-mortar stores, plan. Decide what you want, what stores you want to visit, and focus on getting in and out. If you like holiday hustle and bustle, be prepared for noise, jostling, and long lines.

Most importantly, take time for yourself to relax and decompress from stress. Make this holiday season fun and peaceful for you and those around you.
