The days of month-long college breaks are long gone and reality sets in that you may not have as much time as you’d like to celebrate the holidays in the way you’re accustomed. Whether you just graduated college or have just settled into a new career that doesn’t allow much time off for holidays, here are some tips to make the most out of what you have this holiday season. And remember, always be thankful for the special moments you’ve created over the years and will continue to make in the future.
When you have less time to do everything, you may need to cut out some activities and prioritize the ones that matter. For example, you might need to skip that holiday tree lighting to spend some time with your parents or friends.
Less is More
Don’t try to fit too much in at once, or the things you do will become less enjoyable and more stressful. You don’t need to bake cookies and go to an ugly Christmas sweater party and decorate the tree all in one day. Pick three or four activities that are truly important and special to you.
Pick a Central Location
Although you may want to travel to see friends and family and go to the city for some holiday-themed activities, it’s probably best to stick to one central location if you can. Have friends come to you or visit your family and stay put. This will make for a more relaxing few days.
