This time of year is extra busy – understatement of the week, right?

You not only have to deal with the regular stress of the holidays, but also the added strain of year-end campaigns at your organization.

I compiled a list of articles below, but here are 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

Stay organized/have a to-do list

Treat yourself

Take a moment and breathe
