Ways To Minimize The Holiday Madness
It’s said that it’s the most wonderful time of the year. But for many, it’s also the most stressful. From wrapping up work to wrapping up presents much has to get done at once and we often feel overwhelmed and forget what this time is really all about.
This holiday I propose we take a moment to stop and set our intention instead of just trying to keep up. It’s time to take a minute and ask yourself: What do you want to come out of the season with?
It’s not about the presents, the places we’re going, and it’s not even about what we give. It’s about the relationships we have.
If we spend all of our time overwhelmed it erodes the opportunity to have quality time. And quality time is really what matters. After all, if we have precious time “off” why would we spend it so fruitlessly, weighed down in frustration and stress and not being our best for ourselves or others?
It’s always a delicate balance to manage work and home and that becomes more complicated during the holidays. While it’s easy to be overwhelmed, if you are in a leadership role you have an even higher obligation to stay calm. This is especially important because people take cues on how to handle situations from you. Here are a few recommendations to try as work and home obligations collide this season:
Yes, it’s a busy time of the year, but the important thing is to realize that this is a momentary state. It will be over before you know it, so why not try to enjoy every minute? Wishing you a happy holiday and a break from the routine so you can start next year fresh and ready to be your best in all areas of your life.
