The holidays are finally here. For some of us, they'll last a couple of weeks, for some others, just one.
But although it's tempting to do nothing and taking it easy right now, the holidays are the best time to get ahead on your personal projects. With so much free time on our hands now we can get to finish that thing you promised your kids or finish that project we started a while ago and just set aside. Or better, we can move forward on our projects and alleviate the difficulties when things start again. Better yet, we can still take it easy and rest! It's the best of both worlds truthfully.
The worst thing to do, however, is to let these days fly by unproductively. Not only will you be wasting the opportunity to get ahead, but it will actually make it harder to get back into the routine of working after the holidays are over, especially if you have longer holidays.
Nonetheless, this doesn't mean you can't still spend time with your family or loved ones just to keep working. You can include them in what you're doing as well. You can still take trips out of town. The way I see it, time is money, and now we got a whole lot of spending cash to use outside of our investment.

This was a shorter post, but don't let the importance of it be lost on you. With the extra amount of time we have, we can dedicate more of it to our personal projects while still having extra free time to relax before life starts up again. However, stopping all work can be very detrimental for you, especially if you have longer holidays. This is because habits are hard to recreate once broken, so after getting out of that mindset of keeping busy it makes it hard to get back to it once the holidays are over.
Hi, I'm Matthew, my mission is to spread knowledge about motivation, productivity, and enabling people to achieve the best that they can be! I have a vast background in psychology and a passion for self-improvement. I literally can't remember a time when I didn't have a psychology book in my hands. On top of that, I've traveled around the world from a very young age, and seen many different courses of life, forming friendships with highly successful people, as well as people who are willing to do anything to make ends meet. My own life took me down a roller coaster of highs and lows, and I'm forever grateful that I've been able to overcome everything it threw at me. Now I want to take the opportunity to give back, and help others learn tools and methods for becoming who they were born to be!
