5 Ways to Stay Connected this Holiday Season
The holidays are all about eating delicious food, spending time with family and friends and enjoying some time off. Some of us may travel for the holidays to see loved ones, while many stay put and celebrate with those closest to them, but no matter the location you can stay connected to the people that matter most to you. From quick calls to catch up, to work emails and everything in between, here are a few ways to feel more connected than ever this season:
We are no strangers to FaceTime and Skype and in our digital age it is hugely helpful that we can speak face to face with anyone instantly. We have never been more connected than we are today with all of our loved ones available at the touch of a button. For those of you who can’t make it to see the ones you care about, try joining in the festivities virtually.
If you’re lucky, you might be employed by one of the 23% of companiesthat allow you work remotely. Having the freedom to work during the hours that suit you from the comfort of your own home, or from your vacation destination, is truly liberating and means that you can save some vacation days. Not only does it leave more room for creativity, but it gives you control of your life. Balance your work remotely over your break so you don’t have to come back to an inbox full of emails.
Did you know over 80% of Americanshave a social media profile? We use them to stay connected from afar by updating our friends and family on what we’re up to and how we’re celebrating the holidays. Show off your fun traditions, family recipes and holiday parties on social media and check out what your other friends are up to as well.
Plan a Trip
Nothing creates better memories than exploring somewhere new. Book a trip with friends or family and spend some quality time learning about a new culture, trying local foods and seeking adventure. People are often stressed during the holidays and taking some time to unplug and enjoy yourself is scientifically provento reduce that stress. So grab your friends and family and book that vacation you’ve needed all year!
Escape Some Family Time
Sometimes we need time to connect with ourselves, by ourselves! After a long day of family antics, political disagreements, and questions about your dating life, you may find yourself needing some time alone to relax. Take your laptop or e-reader to a local café and unwind while sipping on a latte in peace.
