The first thought we usually have with Christmas fast approaching is relief, followed by fear. The fear is usually when we think about everything that will need to happen before we get to Christmas. We then very quickly consider how we are going to keep everything together, including some relationships which can come under strain leading into the silly season. For those who are working mums, school holidays will bring a sense of relief, but for others, it means going above and beyond to keep schedules and relationships functioning without conflict.
Now I don’t want to alarm you and drop the C bomb into your November day, but it will soon be Christmas. For a lot of us, our businesses will shut down, and our teams will go off for a well-deserved Christmas break.
As we gear up for the busy season, maintaining a full tank of energy is not just about achieving year-end goals; it's also about finishing the year strong and enjoying a well-deserved break during the holiday season. We all want to enter Christmas with enough energy to truly savour our time away from our businesses or corporate careers.
