There’s nothing like a major holiday, such as Christmas, to ratchet up the pressure on your schedule. Parties, concerts, shopping, visiting all add to an already full schedule. While you may find a couple of quiet days around the holiday, the rest of December can be quite stressful.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help:
- If you’re selected to plan the office Christmas party, put together a group to help you out.
- Get family members involved in shopping, decorating, baking, etc.
- Charitable organizations often run gift-wrapping services as a fund raiser. You can save some time and support a worthy cause by getting your gifts wrapped.
Holidays can add the expectation of the personal touch to all that happens. Don’t feel you have to do everything. Ask for help.
