How to Survive the “Holidaze” in Business & Life!
Holiday stress statistics show that up to 69 percent of people are stressed by the feeling of having a “lack of time,” 69% are stressed by perceiving a “lack of money,” and 51% are stressed out about the “pressure to give or get gifts.” They are present at work, but are underperforming.
What to Do & How to Shift =
New thinking AND doing for NEW Results
Circumstances may not change, but You CAN!
Tools & Strategies to Re-gain Control
Stay mindfully present in the moment: (vs. automated reactions), giving YOU the power to adjust and re-prioritize accordingly in business and life. Intention: “I choose to stay calm, focused…”
Plan ahead: Anticipate, collaborate, clarify expectation at work/with partner.
Hire part-time Help: Assistant, caregiver for family member, sitter, maid.
Make a TO-DO & NOT-DO list: Abide it. Don`t compromise values. Choose wisely from your values and honor priorities.
Know your circumstances: Changes and grief are often stirred up during this time. Acknowledge it and give yourself permission to pause/ feel. Keep it REAL.
Know your weakest link: Recognize weaknesses/ strengths. Know yourself and how you deal; drinking, over eating..
Boundaries - avoid the guilt trap: Know your own worth. Say NO and mean it. Urgency is relative.
Give yourself Win/Win options: To fall back on. Victim to Victorious = Choice.
Don’t fight it: Stay mindful (not mind-full) in the midst of extra stress = adjust your actions response-able vs. overreacting.
Practice compassion: Holiday kindness and compassion isn`t compassion if it does not include yourself. Practice it.
Pause & refuel: Know when to hit the Pause Button to prevent burnout etc.
Cultivate REAL connection: (vs. too many events draining stamina). Cultivate a sense of sharing, support, community.
Abundant Blessings to you and yours!
