Rest — not work: how to plan new year holidays with benefits
After the new year holidays, each of us needs time to get ready for work. Many people claim that they lose precious time during the holidays, although they understand that rest is also important. How do I spend a long weekend without having to go back to work?
AND THEN BAM-AND TO WORK…
And then BAM-and to work…
HR specialists believe that long rest is tiring. When everyone comes to their offices after the January vacation, it takes another week to get involved in the work process. Many employees complain that it’s all the fault of monotony in the rest, which only awakens laziness and apathy. Therefore, it is necessary to relax the mind! But first…
… NEED A PLAN!
… Need a plan!
“In the past new year’s holidays, I had two feelings about the time spent. I feel more tired than rested. As a result, I didn’t have time to do anything.”
Irina ilina, product Manager of a pharmaceutical company
Does this sound familiar? In order not to experience this, it is better to understand once and for all: rest needs planning. Human nature is such that if there is no plan, we tend to take the easy path.
Walking around the city
Meeting with friends
That’s not bad. But if you spend the whole week like this, you won’t have any memories left. Therefore, we recommend that you think about what you can do in advance. We offer several ideas that will diversify the new year holidays.
Learn and learn again
Preferably something new. Learn a foreign language, basic design, or programming. Of course, you are unlikely to learn anything fully in a week. But you will have time to get involved in the process and continue training during working hours.
Why not? Think about writing a business plan that you could not do because of the bustle of everyday life, create pages in social networks to promote the company — all this is quite realistic to have time for the new year holidays. And if you decide to just change jobs, then start writing a decent resume.
Reading for good
On weekdays, you have to read in snatches, in traffic or before going to bed, long holidays encourage more productive reading. And long winter evenings are just created to sit in a chair with an interesting book.
Travel — it’s all impressive
The perfect option for everyone. Even if you can’t go to another country, just go to a neighboring city. The question arises: why go, what is there to see? Just think: the road itself and the view outside the window will already bring new impressions.
“SLOW DOWN, I’M RECORDING.”
“Slow down, I’m recording»
You can think of many more activities, even make your own rating of the best entertainment during the holidays. But the most important thing is to put everything in the plan. No, it’s not old-fashioned. Yes, it’s effective.
1. Write what you will do on the first day, the second, and so on all weekend.
2. Specify the approximate time allowed for each lesson.
3. Encourage your friends and family to spend the holidays together. You don’t have to mention your plan.
4. Don’t forget about being organized. The best way to achieve it is to imagine how happy you will be if you fulfill your new year’s plan, and how upset you will be if your vacation is wasted.
