Find out 5 ways to unwind and recharge During the holidays.
It’s easy to forget to rest during the holidays, what with all the dining and family. Holidays can be stressful at times as travel and socializing might exhaust you. Perhaps you can’t stop thinking about work or any responsibilities you may have. Intentional and attentive relaxation throughout the holiday season, on the other hand, might be the most productive time you have. Here are five ways to unwind and recharge while celebrating the festive season.
1. Begin with solitude.
For introverts, this is extremely vital. You’ll be running on empty over the Festive season if you don’t mentally prepare yourself each morning for the mingling and excitement. The way you start your day will determine how you spend the rest of it. Create a morning ritual to help you clear your thoughts and mentally prepare for the day ahead.
2. Take a deep breath, reframe, and refocus.
Interacting with family and friends who you haven’t seen in a long time can be disastrous. Make a conscious decision to respond rather than react. When words or thoughts are internalized too much, people get enraged and insulted. However, it isn’t always about you. Externalizing frustrations is a simple technique: take a deep breath, then reframe everything bad as a problem with the other person rather than with yourself. This isn’t an excuse to deflect blame when you’re at fault, but it’s important to recognize that you’re not always the source of the problem.
3. Gratitude with a purpose.
Make the holidays a time to build your bonds with family and friends. Giving someone a hug and expressing to them how much you appreciate them stimulates your brain to release oxytocin, the “love” hormone. It’s also an excellent time to rekindle friendships with previous colleagues and mentors. Spend some time sending thank-you emails and handmade notes.
4. Take a walk outside.
Getting outside in nature, if the weather permits, has numerous health benefits, including decreasing stress and blood pressure. It may even assist you in being more inventive. Instead of lounging on the couch, after all, that feasting, grab some fresh air and go for a stroll.
5. Conclude by reflecting.
When you think about significant events and accomplishments from the past, another brain chemical called serotonin is released. Take some time at the end of the day to reflect on the individuals and accomplishments for which you are grateful. Examine the “why” behind your work, including the individuals who inspire and encourage you to achieve your objectives. Visualizing these occurrences will give you the motivation and energy to return to work after the holidays.
