Avoiding The Holiday Coma


Thanksgiving break is coming to an end and absolutely no amount of over-indulgent self care will prepare us for the slump that awaits. After a Sunday filled with an extended Target run, pedicure and face mask I have sadly come to this realization.

It is easy to mentally check-out and coast until New Years, but why lose momentum now? With four weeks until Christmas, how can you get back into the swing of things and end 2018 successfully? Better yet, how can you avoid the holiday coma?

For those of you that live in the Washington D.C. and northern Virginia area, I”ve curated a list of networking events to attend. Just a couple of suggestions to get out of the house and continue furthering your career.
