This time of year is already chaotic enough without the added stress of being an nonprofit communicator.

It’s very important to us that you take care of yourself. You have people to help and planets to save!

Around this time last year, I shared some tips for dealing with the extra stress that pops up this time of year. Below you will find some newer articles as well as sharing ones that I think will still be helpful.

Let’s start with a few tips that seemed to show up in most often, and while you have probably heard them all before, it’s worth being reminded to:

  • Move around
  • Get enough sleep
  • Plan ahead/have a to-do list
  • Treat yourself
  • Take a moment and breathe

And for more tips on how you can better handle the end of the year, read the articles below.
