Holidays tend to go by so fast, don’t they?
Sometimes we have grandiose plans of what we will do in the holidays and all too quickly they seem to end.
Here’s 5 things you can do to make the most of the remainder of your holidays.
1. Say thanks daily.
I’ve heard it said ‘Gratitude is the new black’ and I think it’s true. Gratitude is a powerful force. It’s not happy people who are thankful. It’s thankful people who are happy. Appreciate everything that you have and take a moment to be thankful, really thankful.

2. Finish something.
There is incredible joy in completing. Actually finishing something. Crossing something off that to-do list. Achieving one of the goals you’d planned for your holidays, even something small. Perhaps it’s tidying your work area, going for a run, organising a part of your home, spending extra quality time with your kids. Whatever it is, finish it.
3. Plan your year.
It is essential to plan your year. In fact, I suggest you MUST plan you year. Use this holiday time to sit down and make a plan for this coming year. What do you want to achieve? What do you want to do differently? What will make this year awesome for you?
4. Be kind to yourself.
Sometimes we can have unrealistic expectations of what we want to accomplish in our holidays. I’m all for getting things done and using time wisely, and one of the wisest ways you can use your time is to take time for yourself. To really take a break. To take some time out to just chillax (I know, I know, it’s not a real word but I love it! It summarises for me what it means to take time for myself! So be sure to ‘chillax’ these holidays.)
5. Remain passionate.
Life cannot be enjoyed without passion. Passion is the essential ingredient to loving life. And keeping your passion alive is super important.

This week, make the most of your holidays by being grateful, finishing something, planning your year, being kind to yourself, and remaining passionate.
Enjoy the journey.
More importantly, enjoy the moments.
