Despite hanging beautiful decorations with Christmas music playing, many are also left preparing their home for holiday guests, cooking grandiose dinners and wrapping up holiday shopping – making it an exhausting time of year (especially when you’re supposed to be relaxed and taking a break from work stress).
Here are some tips to fight end-of-year fatigue:
• Get quality, good sleep (aim for 6-8 hours each night)
• Watch your caffeine and alcohol intake
• Limit your naps (tip: 20-minute naps between 1-3 p.m. are professionally recommended)
• Eat well
• Exercise often
• Identify where your stress stems from (seek professional counseling if needed)
