For some the holidays are the most magical time of the year, while for others they can be the most stressful. Perhaps you fall in the middle of the spectrum – you enjoy the magic of the season but the hustle and bustle make you frazzled. How can you keep your cool this time of year, get your work done, and still enjoy the holiday season? Here we take you through some suggestions you can adopt throughout your day.

Before work
Do you have a prayer or meditative practice? If not, it might be a good idea to adopt a practice to help you stay grounded and calm through the season ahead. Something as simple as a morning gratitude practice where you list 3 things you are grateful for can set a positive tone for the day.

It’s also important to prioritize exercise for your mental wellbeing. If you have time, knock it out first thing in the morning before work. Evenings around the holidays can often be filled with parties and holiday shopping, so doing your workout first thing in the morning will ensure you get the endorphins you need to power you through your day.

When you get to the office
It’s easy to get distracted this time of year, especially with thoughts on holiday shopping and festivities, but in the long run if you don’t stay on top of your work and it piles up, you’re going to be much more stressed with the extra work hanging over your head. Make a to-do list to help you stay on track listing off the most important priorities at the top of the list. Employers can help incentivize workers this time of year by having holiday themed contests and competitions.

Another habit to adopt at work is to drink more water - don’t overlook the simplicity of this habit and its effects on your health. At work bring a large reusable bottle and sip water throughout the day. It may be tempting to rely on a steady stream of coffee but it can be dehydrating so if you are going to have coffee be sure to balance it with lots of water so you can feel your best. Aim to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day (and more if you’re also drinking coffee).

After work
Instead of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays try being mindful during your evenings. You don’t want the season to pass you by in a blur so enjoy the sweet moments with friends and family.

People also have a tendency to stay up later than usual during the holiday season. Whatever the reason, whether it’s due to trying to get everything done or simply being at a party out later than normal, do try your best to prioritize sleep. You’ll be more likely to get through your to-do list if you’re not groggy the next morning so going to sleep at a reasonable time will help you accomplish more in the long run.

We hope these tips help you get through the holidays with a calm and clear prospective!

By crossing a pre-1999 Sour Diesel mother with an Oregon Huckleberry father, Huckleberry Diesel results in a potent hybrid with mostly sedative body effects and slight cerebral effects, depending on the phenotype.

Great List of Tips.

One way that mangers can help with the stress in a work environment this time of the year is to review the workload of their team and ensure they have clear priorities so they can keep the most important priorities moving.

Also having some outside work recreation such as holiday party or celebration with some fun team building games can also be a great way to connect and relieve stress.
