December is the perfect month to see friends, eat up to sate, toast, exchange gifts and meet with our relatives.
But it is also the ideal season to reflect on our habits and, in general, on the way we have decided to lead our lives.
Be less dependent on the cell phone.
Yes, we are modern and busy people, and we have to be reachable 24/7 … or maybe not? Let’s relearn to enjoy real life and the people around us.
Do something to benefit our environment.
Support a cause you believe in: you can allocate a percentage of your profits to a foundation, sign up as a volunteer in one or – better yet! – create one from scratch. Give back to the world something of how much it has given you.
Take refresher courses.
Maybe you are an expert in your field, but if you settle for that, you will be lost. Keep in mind that the world changes every day, and if you do not ride the train and keep yourself updated, sooner or later you will be left behind in the race. Sign up for courses, take classes from home, talk with experts that broaden your outlook.
You’re so busy in the day that you do not even find a second to sit down and read … right? Believe us: this is nothing more than a pretext.
Live with less stress.
Your physical and mental health should be a priority. No board, sale, position or company is worth more than that. Try not to carry more work on your back than you can solve without compromising your well-being.

Devote more time to be with ourselves.
We value the time we dedicate to our hobbies, to exercise, rest and be with our friends as well as how we value the hours we dedicate to work. Time for oneself should never be the time left over.
Taking a few minutes to meditate is equivalent to finding an oasis of calm in the midst of chaos. Try to meditate at least five minutes a day; wake up a little earlier and do it before your day begins. Also, take a moment to breathe and reconnect with yourself before going to sleep
Learn to say “no”.
If we did a count of all the times we have agreed to do something that we really did not want to do, maybe the number would go up to thousands.
Learn something completely new. Make sure that this learning has nothing to do with your professional experience.
Let us ensure that each and every one of our actions – including our business decisions – respect our values, those of other people and the environment.
Stay away from negative people.
Says the saying “tell me who you will meet and I will tell you who you are”, and this could not be more true.
Do not be so demanding with yourself.
Allow yourself to fail. Recognize your limits.
