Top tips for Surviving the festive season

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! As Christmas is a joyous time of eating, drinking and being merry, here are some tips on surviving the festive season:

Plan ahead

Many people worry for weeks about getting prepared for Christmas. Instead of wasting your time worrying about Christmas whilst you have lots of work to do, it’s far easier to get ready for Christmas when you first start thinking about it. Start stocking up with supplies in the months leading up to Christmas and start your present shopping early. No one likes the last-minute stress of buying presents on Christmas Eve!

Don’t overdo it

Are you in charge of cooking and hosting on Christmas Day? Make sure you don’t overdo it and don’t take it all upon yourself. Why not ask family members to bring different parts of the meal, snacks or desserts? Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Work can be stressful enough as it is, don’t stress yourself out when you are at home thinking about Christmas. Make sure you have time for yourself.


Sleeping helps our bodies to rest and recover. Drinking and eating too much can affect our sleep patterns as well as late nights that are a regular occurrence over the festive period. Make sure you get some quality sleep between Christmas and new year so you can feel refreshed and ready for when you return to work.

Take time off

Plan your holidays so that you have some well-deserved time off and are not forced into working over the festive season. Combining celebrations and work can leave you feeling worn out. Taking some time off in the run up to Christmas can prevent you feeling overworked and stressed by the time Christmas arrives so you can enjoy the time with your friends and family.

Have fun

Finally, have some fun, you deserve it! After a year of working hard, finish off the year by having fun and celebrating with your family. Take your mind off work and the stresses of life and enjoy your time off doing the things that make you happy with your loved ones.
