Stay Active and Avoid the Slump
Physical activity is not only great for your health but also a fantastic way to bond:
🏋️♀️ Schedule Workouts
Add gym sessions or runs to your calendar to avoid conflicts with holiday plans.
🤏 Embrace Shorter Workouts
Even brief exercise sessions can boost your mood and health.
🤪 Include Fun Physical Activities
Go ice skating, or take a snowy walk.
🏡 Invite Friends and Family
Exercise together for added fun and motivation.
Practice yoga, pilates, or tai chi to unwind after busy gatherings.
Be Mindful with Photos
Capture memories, but don’t let your phone distract from the moment:
🤳 Limit Photo Taking
Focus on capturing key moments rather than constantly snapping pictures.
📆 Post Later
Take time to edit and share photos after the event, not during.
Consider reaching out to a neighbor or visiting a local community center to share the holiday spirit with those who might be alone.
🔌 Disconnect from Social Media
Take a break from the constant digital noise:
⏳ Limit Social Media Use
Tools like Jomo — available for free on App Store, can help limit your social media use. You can block your social media apps by default and allow yourself a few breaks during the day (e.g. 2 breaks of 15 mins each). A good way to cut down without feeling anxious or frustrated.
😌 Enjoy Cognitive Rest
Disconnecting allows your brain to recharge and fosters creativity.
