How to Manage your Time during the Holidays
With the holiday season quickly approaching, it can be easy to feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done! Family gatherings, work obligations and holiday parties fill our schedules and can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed and burnt out. However, it's always important to make time for ourselves so we can continue to feel happy, sexy and strong!
To gain more insight, we asked life coach and best-selling author of 20 Something 20 Everything and Expectation Hangover, Christine Hassler, to share her methods with us. Whether you're having extended family over for the holidays or aiming to ace that work presentation before the new year, check out Christine's methods below.

"When we put a lot on our plates, we usually end up either burnt out or feeling like we failed because it's impossible to live up to all the expectations we put on ourselves.
Pace yourself according to your own energy
There is a way we can avoid going through this cycle of doing too much, burning out, and feeling like failures: healthy time management is about pacing ourselves according to our own energy. When we pace, it's not about speeding up or slowing down, it's about pacing ourselves according to what we need.
Follow your natural rhythms
Start to pace your day according to your natural rhythms. Start thinking about the times you feel most alert. When are you least distracted and able to sit and focus on something? Make these your higher paced times. When you notice that you are getting brain fog, or you're working on a project but also scrolling through Instagram... this is usually the time when you need to slow down your pace.
Make time for yourself...
Make time for yourself to take a break, meditate, exercise, go for a walk, or connect with your loved ones. We all grow through different seasons in life, and there are times we want to go a little lower and times when we want to go a little faster. Give yourself permission to pace rather than always going "all in" and then only resting when you feel burned out. No one can tell you what your pace is other than you!"
