Balancing Work And Personal Priorities During The Holidays

The holidays can oftentimes feel like a whirlwind of activity both personal and work-related, which can sometimes hinder overall work performance. 

To avoid piling on the work in the New Year, it is wise to plan ahead and complete most of it in order to fully enjoy your time off.

As today’s workforce becomes more flexible and remote, the lines between personal life and work life become more and more blurred. Although this can be convenient during holiday travels, it can cause anxiety if you are constantly checking in on work.

According to a report from software firm Okta, workers are increasingly having trouble setting boundaries and even found that some are signing in on Thanksgiving and Christmas in order to start preparing for the next work day.

If it is a must to check your email during the holidays, try to limit sending them only during traditional work hours to other workers. On the other hand, if it seems impossible to unplug, set distinct time aside for work and for yourself.

To subside any work-related anxiety that may be looming over you, try focusing on things your love and keep yourself busy with hobbies, outdoor activities or even chores.

Additionally, take advantage of the tools and benefits offered by your workplace that may make recharging a bit easier.
