How Workaholics Can Relax Right During the Holidays

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.




Depression During Holidays

Holidays are supposed to be a happy time, but many people feel sadness due to heightened expectations, family rifts and comparison with others.

FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)

Our cause of sadness is often related to the fact that we compare our lives with the lives o the people we follow and that seem to be having loads of fun on social media

Try to avoid social media during holidays and during mandatory social gatherings. Also, avoid gatherings that drain your energy.

Creating Your Happiness

Negative emotions can sap us from the inside. Create your happiness by observing and learning from your negativity by using self-awareness

Brighten your day by being generous, providing funds to the needy, holiday gifting to the poor, or doing some volunteer work.

Unhappy Holidays

While holidays are supposed to be the happiest time of the year, many people experience deep sadness, anxiety, and stress during this time.

The added pressure of financial obligations and the cold weather further affect our state of mind.

Be Social

Staying in isolation and hibernating at home can make you sad.

Try to get out and meet people, as socializing can be a remedy to sadness.

Just Go Exercise

While your mind may cook up excuses, it is a fact that any kind of exercise, even walking for a short while will make you feel better, and will increase your heart rate. It is even better with friends, at the gym, with music on.

Defining Retirement
Defining Retirement

Retirement doesn't have to mean that we stop working altogether.

It can mean different things to different people, and some people take to retirement as a way to work towards what they are passionate about.

Reframing Retirement

Retirement can simply mean to maximize one's resources so that one can finally live life on one's own terms. It can mean continuing to work in projects that one finds interesting or fulfilling.

The core takeaway of all the personal definitions of retirement is Freedom. If one can do whatever is desired without worrying about resources or time, a fulfilled life ensues.
