Holiday relaxation tips


As the heart of the holiday season draws closer, it is going to be important for real estate agents to use their time away from work to relax, recuperate and prepare for the year ahead. Some agents may, however, find it difficult to unwind over the Christmas break following a challenging and busy 2012. As such, here are five quick tips to help you relax and decompress over the well deserved Christmas break:


1.       Find time for yourself: while the Christmas break provides a great chance to spend quality time with family and friends, it can also be an opportune time for solitude. Though not for everybody, the practice of spending time alone can be a great pressure reliever for many individuals – particularly those who are accustomed to busy schedules in their day-to-day lives. So take some time out this Christmas to read a good book, watch a film or pursue a new hobby; you may find yourself surprised at the results.


2.       Be organised: It is often the case that holiday stress stems from being underprepared. Many people fall into the trap of putting off menial holiday tasks like cleaning the house, wrapping presents or preparing food, and find themselves panicking when Christmas Eve comes around. To avoid this, aim to plan ahead and get your Christmas jobs done early.


3.       Stick to a budget: while Christmas is, for most people, an expensive time of year, it need not be a financial blow-out. By putting aside a set amount of money and dividing it between your holiday expenses, you can relax in the knowledge that you are controlling your expenditure and avoiding unmanageable debt.


4.       Maintain a positive perspective: while there are aspects of the Christmas season that can cause moments of stress and anxiety; try to remember that the festive season is a time for relaxing and enjoying the company of loved ones. By reminding yourself of this, you should be able to maintain a positive state of mind - something that is essential to enabling relaxation.


From the team at CENTURY 21, have a very merry – and relaxing – Christmas and New Year.
