In my last year of high school an adult once shared with me “the older you get the faster time goes by”. And I literally remember thinking and saying “I can’t wait”. Well as it turns out, he was right and I am now eating my words because of course I realize “I could wait”. And every year at this time I think the same thing, I cannot believe how fast time really does fly by. Each year the weeks and months zoom by and before we know it the holidays are upon us.
Surviving the Office Holiday Party – Time for Fun!
Can you believe it’s that time of year already?
With so much to do on a personal front, all the list making, shopping, preparing and of course enjoying it’s hard to believe we get it all done in time. And once we feel we may have a grip on all things holiday we are gifted with an invite to the work holiday celebration. Talk about stress!
While we all value being appreciated and invited to a work holiday party, most of us still stress about how to enjoy ourselves while still minding our p’s and q’s. It’s always a battle to find the just right boundaries when it comes to office holiday parties. Your work friends will be there but don’t forget the powers that be will too. And yes we are there to have fun, so fun is the name of the game, while avoiding the pratfalls of typical party conduct. When all is said and done and the merrymaking is over we all want to still have a job.
So as this classic and most enjoyable tongue and cheek video from VideoJug shows the key is moderation, everything in moderation. And as shared on this “How to Behave at the Office Christmas Party” video when attending an office holiday party there is much to consider so remember be punctual, dress right, mingle, drink responsibly, tread carefully and behave.
