2020’s almost over, and we’re off to a brand new year. Now, we’re left with the final holidays for the year. 2020 might not be the best year we’ve ever had, but hey, we can still try to make the best out of it.
So, how can you spend your December during the pandemic? Here are some fun and innovative ways to make your last 2020 holidays still worth remembering despite the current crisis we’re in.
Create new normal ways to celebrate
As the saying goes, life must go on, since change is the only constant thing in the world. While we don’t discard the challenges that come with these changes we need to face, we’re also welcomed with new ways to cope up and move forward.
However, there are also practices that are just hard to change, such as decorating for the holidays. but you can add more into the usual holiday decors you used to put up. Now, you can also manually decorate your background for virtual meetings and hangouts to give that Christmas season vibe.
Organize virtual hangouts
Who said hangouts should totally be canceled? Holiday social distancing shouldn’t have to get in the way. Good thing is that we can get the virtual game going!
Arranging virtual huddles, celebrations, and reunions is now a thing, as part of adapting to the new normal. However, like traditional gatherings and reunions, virtual hangouts must be planned ahead of time and well-thought-out. Since this whole virtual thing might be wholly new to those who aren’t really exposed to using technology on a regular basis, you must make sure that everything is organized, scheduled, and each has their own task to make the virtual hangout possible.
Also, decide on what kind of virtual party you must hold. Virtual cocktail parties, watch parties, or simple video call sessions to celebrate the holidays without having the need to physically gather and put your health at risk are good options to consider.
Make this your much-awaited me time
Prior to the new normal, most of us were accustomed to the fast-paced environment demanded by our work, social life, and other personal affairs. Now, we’re somewhat forced to keep it slow in terms of movement, as we’re required to follow social distancing measures. For some, this might be the perfect time to sit down, reflect, and really go through what happened in the past months.
Also, if you’re considering using this time as an opportunity to reassess your career goals, read on which habits on how to advance your career. You may also spend your holidays during the pandemic to start expanding your network so that when 2021 enters, you’re off to new beginnings with a stronger connection base to help you grow your career.
