Reframing Holidays For Workaholics

  • To deal with the lingering sense of guilt you feel when you’re not working, put a little bit of work in here and there, in return for the extended downtime.
  • Reframe the enforced break that the holidays represent to you, as an ideal opportunity to recharge for the coming year’s exertions and gain a clearer head. The time and distance away can prevent burnout and give you a fresh perspective, which could lead to better solutions and brighter ideas.
  • Seize the opportunity to improve relations with your loved ones. Studies show that the health of close relationships have an enormous bearing on our emotional and physical well-being.
  • Work out to get in shape and counter illnesses, depression and anxiety. A half hour of intense cardiovascular exercise reduces body tension and can clear the mind magnificently.

Happiness lies on transitory things, so simplify your life and possessions to get a clearer path to a better internal life. When stuff, people, and the problems they bring fall away, the resulting stillness allows you to find the self-sufficient joy that resides inside.
