Working from Home for a New Kind of Holiday Season

holiday season

With cooler weather and longer nights comes the need to begin planning for the upcoming holiday season. Winter holidays can present a logistical challenge when it comes to your work/life balance under normal circumstances. Managing everything while also adapting to the myriad ways a global pandemic can change your professional and personal landscape is another. 

How Working from Home Can Affect Your Holiday Plans

If you’re long accustomed to working from home, you know it can be difficult to maintain boundaries between work and personal time. Coasting into the end of the year, when many industries are powering up for holiday spending, demands on the time of professionals working from home can be enormous.

For many professionals, however, the shift to working from home in response to COVID-19 was an abrupt and unexpected one. Whether you’re still scrambling to get your bearings in the new normal or you’ve finally settled into a routine, the holidays have the potential to bring major shakeups. 

As part of your holiday planning, it’s a good idea to figure out how you want your holiday season to look and how your schedule can be adapted to better suit your needs. Large gatherings with family and friends may be ill-advised at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find new ways to celebrate. Making sure you have the time and space to do just that can feel daunting, but it can be as simple as examining your to-do list from a different perspective. Of all the things that must be managed through the end of the year, how many must be done by you personally? How many could reasonably be outsourced?

Streamlining Your End-of-Year To-Do List

How many of the things you handle on a daily basis feel like a waste of your time? Some things require your specialized knowledge, but there’s a good chance a substantial portion of your daily work could be handed off to a reliable virtual assistant. Offloading these tasks immediately frees up time in your day, but it can also translate to a better overall work/life balance as you’re expending your energy where it counts the most. 

Professional and personal growth aren’t impossible under extraordinary circumstances like these. From the holiday season all the way through the next year of our new normal, you can make better use of your time and talents.
