As we reach the end of the year, companies and organizations across the globe are all working hard to reach their quotas and meet their annual expectations. In fact, this time period has affected the work-life balance for most employees in America.

While productivity can be rewarding, a 2021 American Psychiatric Association poll found that Americans are five times more likely to find that their stress increases (41%) than it decreases (7%) during the holiday season. Aflac’s recent 2022 study shows that nearly 2 in 3 (70%) Americans admit they plan to do some work during the holiday season as well.

While we often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday seasons, it is important to pay attention to reflecting, recharging, and recalibrating so we can be ready to welcome the new year. Whether it be through spending quality time with our families and loved ones, or spending some time in solitude to decompress, prioritizing our sources of happiness is key during this holiday season. This way, we can come back energized and even strong after the holiday season.
