The holiday season is upon us and depending on your work field, it can be a busy or slow time of the year. While it may seem impractical to let yourself off the hook during the busy season, sometimes it can be exactly what you need to relax and return to work with a winning attitude. Below are some useful tips for de-stressing and refocusing at work during the holidays.
1. Use your PTO. If you have any remaining PTO make sure you use them, especially if your company doesn't allow them to roll over. It's important to truly take some time off from work and not have to be "on", even while you're away. Make sure you have a plan in place to ensure things run smoothly and turn off email and/or text notifications.
2. Delegate tasks. Don't take it all on yourself! Make sure you delegate specific tasks to others on your team that you trust will get the work done. It takes a team effort to run a business so take this as an opportunity to open the door for your team members to step up and shine.
3. Work ahead to take time off. Make it easier on yourself by getting ahead on specific projects or tasks before you take time off work. That way, when it comes time to start your vacation, you’ll already have several tasks completed, leaving less to stress about during your free time.
4. Make time for working out. We all know that working out helps alleviate stress so make sure you take some time every day, if not at least once a week, to work out.
