Episodes 55 of The Vendor's Daughter
The holidays are the happiest time of year, but they can also be the most stressful.
For the entrepreneurs who have been on the show, they find it particularly busy as this is also the time of year where they sell the most and when there business needs them the most.
Whether or not you're an entrepreneur, I'm willing to bet that the holidays are a busy time of year for you too; with the gift buying, the baking, all the social activities, etc. it can feel like there is too much to do and not enough time to do it.
In Episode 55 of The Vendor's Daughter we give you 5 simple tips on how to survive (and dare I say thrive) this holiday season.
I know your time is precious so I'm going to list the 5 Tips here but for the full explanation of each tip listen below or anywhere where you stream podcasts.
The 5 Tips to Survive this Holiday Season:
1. Take care of the most important things first (the MOST IMPORTANT thing is your health) - Make sure you are getting enough sleep, drink half your body weight in ounces ever day, moving your body for 30 minutes and making good food choices
2. Delegate Stress - In other words, ask for help. You don't need to do EVERYTHING by yourself. Maybe shopping seriously stresses you out but you have a friend who LOVES to shop. Ask here to take care of your list this Christmas and in turn help her do something you love but that causes her anxiety.
3. Embrace the Crazy - It's a busy time of year, don't pretend like it's not. Be honest with how you're feeling and be okay with letting go of a little routine.
4. Worry Less - Rather than being worried that you are letting everyone down, ask your MVPs what the MOST important thing to them this holiday season is. If one kid says making a gingerbread house and one says seeing the lights, well then make sure to do those two things really well. If nothing else gets baked and nothing extra gets done you can still know you took care of the most important people on your list.
5. Take Time to Be Still - A daily time to sit and reflect is a great practice any time of year, but it's especially important this time of year. Remember January is coming. Slow down the clock just a little and take some time for some deep breaths this holiday season.
