Going into the holiday season, there’s a tendency for our calendars to be completely filled up with events - work parties, family gatherings, social events… it can be a lot to keep up with! I’ve decided that I’m doing Christmas a little differently this year and I’m talking today about how I’m being intentional to avoid overgiving and burnout this festive season. 

Often we push ourselves to the absolute max to get everything done and be everything for everyone. After a huge year in business, it can feel like we fall into a heap on holidays. And what should be time for rest and recuperation becomes a season of even more busyness, stress and obligation.  

So today I want to encourage you to take the pressure off. Look realistically at what needs to get done and take the time to think about how you want to enjoy your holidays. I share the plans I’ve made for Christmas this year and how I’ve been very intentional about who I’m seeing and what I’m saying yes to. 

You don’t have to do everything and setting boundaries is a big part of making sure that you’re able to show up with the right energy. Think about what’s important to you, how you want to spend your time and be intentional about doing it. And most importantly, enjoy your holiday season!
