In this day and age, when we go to work, we go to work. When we vacation, it doesn’t always seem to feel that way because we still think about work. Holiday breaks are rare but wonderful opportunity to spend recharging. Here are some relaxation tips for the holidays:

  • Turn off all work related reminders.

As aforementioned, even when we don’t work, we work; so it’s important to unplug from your daily stresses. Turn off your work phone, log out of work email and enjoy connecting with family and friends!

  • Do that thing you haven’t gotten around to doing.

Was there a cycling class you’ve been meaning to sign up for? Or have you been meaning to catch up with an old friend? Whatever the occasion, this is the perfect time to do it!

  • Create memories.

The greatest time to reconnect with family is coming up. This means laughter and cherishable moments that will make great stories and will always be with you. Try to go to as many family events as you can!

  • Set resolutions that are achievable.

My approach to a new year’s resolution is setting goals that are achievable and make me happy. For instance I’m active and nature calms me. However, I don’t combine the two as much as I’d like to. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to plan a few hiking trips with friends. Not only is it healthy, but it is also social!

  • Complete the tasks on your To-Do List.

This is a perfect time to fix that squeaky door or paint your bedroom. Getting rid of or donating unwanted items such as old clothes or gadgets gives you a fresh start in the New Year!

  • Spend quality time with the people you live with.

Whomever you live with, you guys spend every night at home. Plan a movie night or a wine and cheese night; simple activities that brings you guys closer!
