The busiest time of the year is fast approaching.
Holiday parties, get togethers, family gatherings…
Plus add daily life on top of that, getting all the presents in order, playing Santa Claus…
It’s just busy.
Here are two tips to not only thrive this holiday season but make the most of them.
#1 Set boundaries.
Yes, I know this can be difficult, especially if you’re a super mom. But boundaries are MOST important during busy seasons. This is the time you need to either ask for support or most importantly, say NO!
Who can you lean on for things? It might be the simplest thing but if it can give you more time, delegate some of your tasks. Also, ask yourself if you actually need to be doing everything you have on your to-do list. Is it needed or are you going out of your way to burn yourself out?
The holidays are meant to be enjoyed, not another reason for you to run yourself in the ground. Remember, sometimes less is more.
Now is the time to speak up. Say NO if you have to. Your time and energy is important, especially if you have a family and your schedule is busy to start off with. Whatever doesn’t feel right to you, listen to your gut. If it’s a “no”, then say it.
#2 Be present.
- What can you do to be more present and enjoy the little moments?
- What do you need to take off your plate so you can be present when it counts?
- What can you do NOW that when the time comes to be present, you don’t feel like you’re being pulled in 10 different directions?
I promise you, you won’t look back 10 years from now wishing you had done more. But you will look back and wished you had been more present.
Allow yourself the opportunity to set boundaries so that you can be present for what matters most to YOU!
Lastly, enjoy yourself!
This special time only comes around once a year. Make each moment count.
