WORK-LIFE BALANCE HOLIDAY EDITION:
WHAT'S ON YOUR LIST!?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
For many of us this declaration of “good cheer” doesn’t ring true. This time of year also signifies extra requirements such as gift shopping, holiday card writing, holiday planning and increased end-of-the-year workloads. These are extra stressors that can tip our already careful work-life balance over the edge.
This year, more than previous years, we need to keep the balance, ensure our holiday sanity and enjoy the little things.
Here are some ways to keep the “holiday tip” from occurring this year:
1.) Know and avoid your stressors.
We all try to make the holidays special for others. Many times we shoulder the larger part of the planning and preparation than we should as well. If cooking for a large group, gift wrapping, shopping or baking cookies are your key stressors, don’t do them. Order in, cater your next holiday meal or get gift cards instead of gifts. Outsourcing these pain points will ensure everyone stays merry for the holidays – including YOU.
2.) Get flexible at work.
Finding ways to save time this time of year helps get everything completed. This includes saving time at work! Move meetings together. Eliminate travel time when possible. Schedule a few afternoons off so you can get extra errands finished during the workday. Plan and set deadlines to be more flexible to alleviate the inevitable stress.
3.) Make your OWN list and check it twice.
While this time of year is all about “list making,” it’s important to create our own master list. Write down everything you have to do, want to do and feel obligated to do in separate categories. To see the big picture helps us decide what is really important. The holidays are a time to give back and enjoy family and friends. This does not include wearing yourself out so much that everyone else has a good time but you. Prioritize, set boundaries and cross off the list anything not necessary or that doesn’t meet the goals in your overall work-life balance strategy.
Remember to check that list twice… and cross off some of those obligations.
By focusing more on the things we want and need to do, rather than the obligations, we reduce stress, manage expectations and enjoy what really should be the “most wonderful time of the year!”
