Schedule time each week to completely disconnect from work. This means no checking work emails or texts or answering work calls.
If you have too much work on your plate, don’t try to manage by working while everyone else is out of the office or during an actual holiday.
Aiming to accept any feelings you may have around this time of the year is a good habit to introduce more relief, more self-compassion and less stress.
And while you may be busy finding gifts for everyone, you shouldn’t forget about giving yourself the gift of self-care.
If you have a trusted friend or family member, reaching out to them and talking about your feelings, emotions, and frustrations can be helpful during this time of year.
