Year end stress: a call for help!
This post is aimed to those who, as I do, suffer from year-end stress in business. People like sales, consultants, accountants, purchase managers, C-level working people and not to forget those who are in the gift and toy industry etc. - all those who have to bury an extra load of work when the year-end closing is approaching. And those who will have an intense “I have to visit all my relatives all over the country”-program coming in the next days too.
I notice that my business workload is getting so high that my daily PE exercise discipline goes down the sink. I am simply too tired to PE. And when thinking of the coming days, PE training frequency is in danger too as we’ll visit parents. So no heating the rice sock in the microwave possible, little to no privacy. This is stressing me even more as I feel there is a danger of a involuntary break in PE.
So I’d like to ask all who already had been through similar stressful times: what were your strategies to keep PE on top of your priority list and allow space and time for proper exercises under difficult conditions?
- Did you intentionally take a break?
- Did you adapt the routine to a kind of light maintenance mode?
- Did you keep the planned routine regardless of business pressure?
- Did you PE during the ‘family-days’ regardless of social pressure?
