And if you choose to carve out some time to plan and prep for a grand finale to 2015, here’s some tips from us to you.
The holidays can be a stressful time, especially as you try to get work done before the end of the year. Use your Thanksgiving Break to regroup. This could mean mentally, physically, or socially. Take advantage of the few extra days and use it for you time or time to rest and grow. You will need it as you return back to work.
Plan for the Holidays.
The holidays will likely be a source of stress for you as you try to finish projects and tie up loose ends. Set aside some time during your Thanksgiving Break to assess what you need to do upon your return to work. This could be as simple as writing a few to-do lists or as involved as taking a few hours to actually do some of the work. Either way, this will help you to not be so overwhelmed upon your return.
Make Goals for the New Year.
When the holidays roll around, you will be busy with work and personal commitments. Take a few minutes during your Thanksgiving break to make goals for the New Year. By doing this, you will be helping yourself stay grounded during the holidays and into the next year. If you want, you can share those goals with friends and family as a way to help keep yourself accountable.
