HolidayStressAs an employee, managing stress during the holidays can be stressful itself. Juggling a job with family obligations and responsibilities during this season is tough, especially when the end-of-the -year expectations become higher and more difficult. Scheduling concerns and gift shopping add to a growing list that begins to overrule what was supposed to be a peaceful season of joy.

SUPERIORHIRE, your Dallas staffing company, has some tips for you when it comes to managing stress and staying engaged at work. Following this advice will help you continue succeeding in the workplace while also maintaining positive thoughts and feelings toward the holiday season.

  • Stay organized by making sure your schedule does not overlap and you are still able to manage your workload around holiday events and time off. If you need to change your schedule or take time off, let your employer know as soon as possible so the schedule can be adjusted in a timely manner.
  • Communicate with your coworkers and manager when you need help, need to take time off, or have important updates that will make the whole office more productive during the end of the year.
  • Ask questions about work you are given that you need more information to complete or are having trouble understanding. Your employer is not only there to delegate tasks, but also to explain them to you and help you succeed.
  • Participate in morale-boosting activities that will reverse any negative attitudes adding to your stress at work.
  • Identify your stress and do not let yourself become less productive as a result of it. Ignoring the warning signs will lead to a loss in confidence and effectiveness.
  • Pay attention to your physical health. Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep and eating foods that energize you. Speaking of energy, a little exercise would not hurt either.
  • Leave a little earlier every morning to avoid having to rush yourself into the workday when you arrive at the office.
  • Prioritize your task list. Complete tasks in order of importance, and put any tasks that you are not particularly looking forward to at the top of the list as well to ensure the rest of your day is more pleasant and productive. Break larger projects into smaller tasks instead of trying to complete them all at once.
  • Do your best to contribute to the end-of-the-year success of your company, but do not push yourself over the edge in the process. Stay positive and confident in yourself, and your productivity will improve as a result.
