Staying motivated during the holiday season can be tough, especially if we have some extra days off. I find myself wanting to loaf around in my pj’s and fuzzy socks, staying curled up with a cup of hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies all day long…but is that in our best interest? Life gets hectic during this time of year, our to-do lists get longer and we can fall behind…making us tired and somewhat lazy. While I am a big advocate of taking some time to rest and to recoup, do you want to spend all your vacation days doing that? And hey, if you do, all the power to you, but don’t get stuck in the unmotivated loop! I reached out to a pal of mine from the beautiful Sydney, Australia to see what she does to keep motivated during the jovial season. Though, I don’t get the opportunity of a holiday beach day this year, she has some awesome ideas on how to stay merry and motivated!
How to Stay Motivated During the Holidays
We are officially on the countdown to Christmas! Which means food, presents and relaxation. Christmas and holidays automatically calls for a relaxing lie on the beach or swim in the waves (if you’re down under) or a warm cup of hot chocolate by the fire (if you’re up over!). But it’s so easy for us to take advantage of the few days we have with ourselves that we tend to lose motivation. I’m 100% guilty of this – all I want to do is sleep in till midday and eat myself silly till the new year. But then there’s that alarm bell that goes off in my mind – New Year’s Resolutions! We all want the better part of ourselves to start when the new year does, so here are my top 5 tips to get motivated during the holidays!
