New Year is perhaps the most long-awaited holiday for many. And the New Year holidays are expected even more. People so want to rest for several days in a row, when there are no calls from customers, no need to get up early, no obligations, just rest and a lot of food. But for some reason, after such a long period of days off, most often you do not feel lightness and a feeling of good rest. There is no strength to go to work, it is difficult to concentrate on the tasks ahead, the brain and body are not ready for new weekdays.
How to Relax and Conserve Energy: 3 Tips
Tip 1. Be physically and mentally active
As a rule, people on holidays sharply reduce their level of activity (unless they go somewhere on a trip where you have to walk a lot). It's the same with mental activity. After months of work, I want to relax.
But 10 days of such total relaxation leads to the fact that then it is difficult to get together, to tune in again to work, to move somewhere. An easy way to avoid this is not to completely stop your physical and mental activity. And if you have not been physically active lately, then this is a chance to even increase it. There will be plenty of time for this.
Tip 2. Analyze the outgoing year and think about the future
It is better, of course, to do such an analysis at the end of the year. But if it doesn't work out, then it's time to do this on New Year's holidays.
Because in this constant routine we run, run, run … And sometimes we forget, but where, in fact, are we running? At least once a year we have the opportunity to stop and see if we ran there? And maybe it's time to turn somewhere?
It is very good if you write goals for the next year. During this period, the body wants new victories and achievements, having a plan, you will know where to move from the very first days of the year. Therefore, most of these goals come true.
Tip 3. Take a step towards yourself and your inner child
In this constant race of life "work, family, household affairs" we often forget about ourselves. It is very important to start getting to know yourself and understand what exactly you (and not your environment) want. Remember some old hobbies. Be alone with yourself. Get to know yourself better.
Perhaps this is the main recommendation. Spending time with yourself, even talking out loud when no one is listening, is an opportunity to understand what you would like to be celebrated this new year, what is important to you. In a dialogue with oneself, one can hear many clues about life. It is your inner voice that missed communication. Indeed, most often a person does not discuss problems alone with himself and therefore problems are not solved. The best way to change something is to ask yourself "how."
Long holidays give us a unique opportunity to do what there is not enough time for at other times. Take this chance.
