3. Learn to Say No
“No” is a complete sentence but oftentimes we feel guilty about telling people no when they ask us to do something. This typically comes with a price that usually we pay. By saying yes too many times and overextending yourself, you set yourself up for some serious fatigue, both mentally and physically.
4. Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
With everything going on this time of year, this is not the time to get less sleep at night. Poor sleep can affect your mood, focus, memory, and tolerance for stress. When these things are out of whack, your overall functioning can be impaired. Poor sleep also has a negative effect on your immune system and flu season is not the time to have a weakened immune system.
Actively working towards avoiding fatigue can not only protect you from any decline in functioning, it can also allow you to enjoy the moments that matter more. At the end of the season, you won’t remember how many cakes you baked or how many parties you went to but you will remember the quality time you spent with those who matter.
