Tips for Thriving in the Holiday Season

The following tips will help you to negotiate the holiday period with ease without compromising family or career and without wearing you down.

  • Create a Holiday Schedule: Prioritise tasks by creating a detailed holiday schedule. Allocate specific time slots for work, family activities, and holiday preparations. This will provide a visual guide to manage your time effectively.
  • Establish Boundaries: Set clear boundaries between work and personal life. Communicate your availability to colleagues and clients and stick to designated work hours during the holiday season. Clear communication can prevent last-minute work emergencies and reduce stress.
  • Schedule “Me Time”: Intentionally schedule time for yourself on your calendar. Whether it’s a quiet moment with a book, a relaxing bath, or a short walk, having dedicated “me time” helps recharge your energy. It’s OK to say no.
  • Take Breaks: Taking short breaks throughout the day can serve as mental resets, allowing you to return to tasks with renewed focus and energy.
  • Delegate Tasks or do them together: Delegate tasks to family members or colleagues. Whether it’s preparing meals, decorating the house, or handling specific work responsibilities, sharing the workload can ease your burden. Or do them together, as this can create lasting memories while at the same time many hands make light work.
  • Plan Family Activities: Planning specific family activities during the holiday season. This could include game nights, movie marathons, or other traditions that create lasting memories and reinforce the importance of family time.
  • Prioritise Quality Over Quantity: Remember that spending quality time with family is more important than the quantity of time. Engage in meaningful activities with your loved ones, even if it’s for shorter durations.
  • Batch Activities: Batch similar activities together. For instance, designate specific days for holiday shopping, wrapping gifts and meal preparation. This approach can help minimize context switching and increase efficiency.
  • Set Realistic Expectations: Remember that it’s okay not to do everything. Setting realistic expectations for yourself and others will reduce stress. You don’t have to attend every event or complete every task. Focus on what truly matters and let go of perfectionism.
  • Practice Mindfulness: Incorporate mindfulness practices into your daily routine. This could include meditation, deep breathing exercises, or simply taking a few minutes to focus on the present moment. Mindfulness can help reduce stress and increase overall well-being.
  • Get Adequate Sleep: Remember the importance of getting enough sleep, even during busy times. Quality sleep is essential for physical and mental health, and it can significantly impact your ability to handle holiday-related challenges.
  • Stay Active: Physical activity is a great way to relieve stress and boost mood. Whether it’s a quick workout, a yoga session, or a brisk walk, incorporate regular exercise into your routine.
  • Indulge in Simple Pleasures: Remember to enjoy simple pleasures that bring you joy. Whether it’s sipping a favourite cup of hot chocolate, listening to music, or enjoying a festive treat, these small indulgences can make a big difference.
  • Connect with Loved Ones: Foster connections with friends and family. Socialising, even in small doses, can provide emotional support and create positive experiences. Whether in person or through virtual means, maintaining social connections is vital for well-being.
  • Express Gratitude: Practice an “attitude of gratitude” by reflecting on the positive aspects of your life. Keeping a gratitude journal or simply taking a moment each day to acknowledge what you’re thankful for can contribute to a more positive mindset.
  • Unplug from Technology: Unplug from emails and social media for designated periods. This break from digital distractions can help you relax and be present in the moment.
  • Treat Yourself: Remember to treat yourself during the holiday season. Whether it’s a spa day, a favourite dessert, or a small splurge, incorporating moments of indulgence can boost your spirits.
