[Newsletter] End of Year Rut Getting You Down? πŸ‘€

Jeepers and just like that it’s November

We’re certain you would agree when we say most of us are exhausted- emotionally, mentally and physically. As the countdown to the festive season nears, office productivity is dwindling, some people are more relaxed with their routines and others are actually just over it!

In an effort to finish this year on a high note, we have compiled some practical points that will help you soldier through the final stretch:

  1. Mind the power of your words: No matter what is happening around you in your external life always choose to respond/speak positively even though it might seem impossible
  2. Tap into your friends’ energy: Arrange a catch up session with that one super positive friend of yours and let all that positive energy rub off on you!
  3. Ditch the clutter: Clean up areas of your workplace or do a closet clean up. Just the process of letting go clears your space and your mind.
  4. Give back: Do something good by donating to the less fortunate – this is a great way to remind ourselves how blessed we are in spite of the challenges we are currently facing
  5. Prioritise: Look at your tasks and pick those that you can reasonably execute on before the end of the year.
  6. Remain grateful ALWAYS: For all the lessons and experienced that have taught you this year.

Good things can still come from the last 50 days this year: I wish you all the best as you countdown to the festive season.

Things are getting super busy on rubybox with only 2 months of 2021 remaining and we’re going to end the year off with a bang. Be sure to check out our current test & review campaigns and much more below.

    This article is just what I needed. I plan on following all of those points. I chose rather than just starting the upcoming new year on a positive note, I would also like to end 2021 on a positive mindset. The year hasn’t been the best but I’m still grateful and blessed with the people I have around me. Thank you Rubybox.
