6 Ways to Overcome Holiday and End of Year Stress

The holidays can be a stressful time for many of us, to remove the overwhelm here are six tips to help you maintain your sanity so you can truly enjoy this wonderful time of year.

Holiday Stress: Traveling

The holiday season is the busiest time of the year for long-distance travel. Flights are often overbooked, and highways are overcrowded, which can add stress to the season. Use the following tips below:

  1. Plan ahead – Check commute times, if driving.  Try to do most driving during non-rush hour times to avoid bad traffic.
  2. Air Travel– Allow plenty of extra time at the Airport.
  3. Weather– Have an alternate plan in case of inclement weather.
  1. Do not leave the house on an empty stomach– it encourages overeating
  2. Avoid standing near the food table at get-togethers– it is not the worst place to be but a sure-fire way to overindulge. 
  3. Socialize– This will help to keep you occupied and away from helping yourself to all the treats and goodies.

Corporate Social Responsibility Corner – Team PMO Takes Home the Gold!

Ok so we didn’t give them gold, they did however win these beautiful LCG jackets and and shiny trophy award.

The team award recognizes the collective efforts of an outstanding group of employees who worked together to complete a project that supported LCG’s Corporate Social Responsibility mission.

Our first team to win this award was the PMO team. The PMO Team embraced the spirit of collaboration as they donated enough supplies to fill over twelve backpacks (each backpack holds about 30 items) for our LCG Annual Backpack Drive, as well as assisted the CSR committee with preparing remaining backpacks with donated supplies. Congratulations to Carlene Carter, Beverly Tarrant, and Freddie Thomas for their generosity and teamwork!

The winning team received LCG jackets and were the recipients of the LCG CSR Volunteer Team Award at the November Corporate monthly lunch. The team will hold their title and the award until our next team volunteer event in the first quarter of 2020.
