Turn up the Christmas music and get the eggnog ready, the holidays are just around the corner! As great as the holiday season is, they can be a bit stressful. The holidays are the busiest time of the year for most people and this can really drag down your spirits in the office. Don’t let having to go to work during this festive season take away from you enjoying the holiday cheer! Here are 5 ways to keep your spirits high in the office during the holiday season.
- Decorate Your Office Space
Just like how decorating your office space can help you de-stress, decorating your office space for the holidays are a fun and easy way to engage in the season at work. Turn on the holiday music in the office and remember that just because you’re at work does not mean you are missing out on any holiday activities.
- Participate in Office Holiday Activities
If your office has an office holiday party, a white elephant gift exchange, or even a decorating contest, you should participate. Holiday activities are a break from the work day. When you participate in office holiday activities you’re bringing the holiday cheer to the office. Besides, no one wants to be alone for the holidays and this is an opportunity to bond with your co-workers!
- Wear an Ugly Sweater
Ugly sweaters are as popular as ever this holiday season, and they’re a great way to engage in the holiday spirit! Ugly sweaters also keep you warm on these cold winter days. Did you know being cold can decrease energy levels? It’s time to get those ugly sweaters from storage and start spreading the holiday cheer!
- Limit Your Sugar Intake
Holidays go hand in hand with desserts. Gingerbread, peppermint cookies, red velvet cupcakes, and cake balls always taste better during the holiday season! It’s very tempting to indulge in all the goodies this time of the year, but all that sugar can affect your work ethic. Eating lots of sugar gives you a quick energy high, but also causes you to have a giant crash.
- Spend Some Time Alone
This is the time of year when your house is full of relatives and your schedule is booked with holiday parties. Make sure you put some time aside for yourself. Going for a walk during your lunch break at work, reading a book, or window shopping are all great options for some holiday quality you time.
