Keep Calm and Carry On November 10, 2017

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is upon us.  Christmas shopping, sending holiday cards, attending parties, and baking cookies list some of the personal tasks we undertake at this time of year.  Whereas, completing year-end reviews, closing out budgets, finishing projects, and developing 2014 strategic plans top our professional tasks to accomplish as well.

With all these expectations, it is easy to get frazzled, stressed out, overwhelmed, and exhausted.  In order to get everything accomplished, it is helpful to remember to operate from a place of calm rather than a state of chaos working from a balanced plan.

  • Intellectually—Create a daily to-do list with everything you want to accomplish personally and professionally to help keep you on track and focused on your priorities.
  • Physically—Take 10 deep breaths before going into any major event. This will relax you and provide more oxygen to your brain giving you confidence and mental clarity.
  • Emotionally—Don’t spend time and energy on individuals that emotionally drain you.  Be professional and courteous when you have to interact with those individuals, but rather seek out and intentionally interact with individuals that bring out the best version of you.
  • Spiritually—Remember to take time out for yourself to connect with your spiritual needs.  Take a walk, meditate, attend church or spend time in the classroom of silence.  You will be amazed at how much inner peace and strength you will find to “Keep Calm and Carry On.”
