The winter holiday is the best time of the year. Everyone is out and about shopping, decorating, having parties, traveling and enjoying each other. All the while life goes on and we must go to work which can be distracting. We know how easy it is to lose yourself in the holidays and forget about work, good thing that we can help. We have 5 tips to help keep the holidays and work from mixing.
Request time off. Don't forget to tell the boss the dates of your vacation aside from the days the offices is closed, take some extra time for you. Work will feel like a breeze knowing that soon it’s time to relax.
Don't mix holiday with work. While at work avoid cramming in Christmas shopping or personal holiday tasks. There is no way to get a deal online and finish that report without a mistake.
Try not to over stretch yourself. During this season there are company holiday parties, charities, school events and so much more. There is only so many things one can do, pick what the things you know you can do without a doubt and stick to that.
Keep your daily routine going. Staying on your normal routine is important to maintain a well-balanced life. If there is stress outside of work, it’s going to come along with you to work. Sleep well, eat like always, and exercise as often.
Leave work at work. At work you may not be the only one who is distracted. Because of this some are going to have to work harder because of it and that can be stressful. As hard as it may be to leave work at work it is important to do so because then you will be think about it for days to come. There is no bigger distraction then work frustration.
Focus on work while at work. The best way to focus on work during the holidays is to remember to stay in the present. When veering off think about the fact that today is not the holiday so it should be work like any other time of the year.
