Listen up marketers, a blogger is talking. You’ve worked hard all season. From way before Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve is a country-wide marketing sprint. This isn’t marketing advice, this is advice for not only surviving but enjoying your next few days off.
Seriously guys lay off the electronics. Disconnect for a few days to eat, drink, and be merry! You’ve set up email campaigns, coupon codes, newsletters, sent e-cards, posted your favorite Christmas Vacation moments on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. A few hours dedicated to face to face interaction will be a nice change of pace.
Make Good Decisions
Just because your cousin Lindsey “triple dog dares” you to chug a gallon of eggnog doesn’t mean you need to do it. Also don’t feel like you have to shove that sixth cookie into your mouth just because they are there. People associate holidays with a time of indulgence and there is room for that, but don’t forget the consequences stay with you after the day is over. That goes double for New Year’s Eve!
Give What You Can
If you can’t get that official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle for your nephew because he’ll shoot his eye out, remember anything will let them know you are thinking of them. Even if it is just a hug, a card, or homemade cookies you don’t have to break the bank to give a gift.
You made it through another year! Celebrate all your successes and lessons learned. It starts all over again in a few days so take a minute to reflect, appreciate, and gather your strength for the next round.
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year from Team Sideqik!
