In the elevator this morning a co-worker of mine mentioned how tired she was. She said that she feels like she has been tired every single day for the past couple of weeks.
I told her that I felt the same way, but that basically I’ve accepted that I am going to be tired until January.
For me, Halloween generally marks the start of the holiday season. From that point on until New Years, the activities are non-stop.
Holiday party after holiday party, combined with the actual holidays and all that that entails (travel! family! stress!), not to mention my birthday (30! Holy Shit 30!), and well, it’s a very busy time of the year.
And when you add in the awesome fact that the SF Giants just won the World Series (!!!), it’s already been a pretty jam-packed party filled October.
Before all the craziness gets into full swing, I’m going to try to make sure I take the time to check-in with myself and try to keep myself sane. I’ve signed up for Deepak Chopra’s 21-day meditation challenge (which I feel a bit silly admitting) but I’m hoping that it will help keep me centered and balanced among all the upcoming holiday chaos.
Because it is just that – chaos.
Granted, it’s awesome chaos, and I do love this time of year. It’s my favorite time of the year, actually. I wouldn’t give it up for anything, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed when there is so much stuff going on.
And with that, I wish you all a very happy November!
Do you have any tips for staying sane during the holidays?
