It is hard to believe it is that time of year again. With Thanksgiving leftovers still lingering in our fridge, attention at work turns to the end of the year and all of the tasks and celebrations that occur. From planning parties to navigating time off, "balance" is not always the first word that comes to mind this time of year. We have got the best tips for not only surviving, but actually enjoying yourself this holiday season at work.
1. Plan PTO
Time off is not a given during the holidays. To have a stress-free and relaxing time at home or on vacation, one must plan in advance. Click here for tips on how to navigate holiday PTO.
2. Use a Shared Workspace
A shared workspace is key to surviving the holidays, or any busy season, at work. Full-service spaces help you focus and keep things running while you are out of town. Learn more about why shared workspaces are where you want to be this holiday season here.
3. Spread Holiday Cheer
Balance the stress of end-of-year deliverables with fun holiday activities. Most companies do a holiday party, but look for smaller ways to make the season special. Sponsor a family in need and buy them gifts together, set up a hot cocoa bar, organize a white elephant exchange, or have any ugly sweater day.
4. Practice Self-Care
It is easy to let the festivities and stress of the season get to us. Take time to practice small moments of self-care throughout your day. These tips will help you feel more grounded and relaxed through the end of the year!
5. Feeling Festive

You can partake as a way to unwind with family or use them as an opportunity to bond with your team and network with peers.
