It’s called Relax Lite, and is meant to have breathe in and out with the help of soothing sounds and animations.

As the holiday season is officially upon us (and so is the cold weather), I’ve been on the lookout for festive yet cozy sweaters, that would look just as good in the office than at my in-laws’ Thanksgiving gathering. Hence today’s pick, this embellished merino wool sweater from Ann Taylor, on sale for half off $74.99!

Loving the simplicity of this versatile sweater, which can be just as easily paired with a black pencil skirt for work, or tuxedo pants like this great pearlized pair, also from Ann Taylor!

Happy Thanksgiving!

How to Manage Your Workload During The Holiday Season

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
The holiday season is officially in full swing, and so are fourth quarter and year-end deadlines! While we look forward to celebrating the holidays, unwinding and relaxing a bit, projects still need to be completed and delivered, deadlines met, basically, stuff needs to get done…

Not to mention many of our colleagues and reports are taking time off, and getting the job done without overtaking team members and stressing ourselves out right before we have to go spend time with our dreadful great-uncle: not so much! Especially when 85% of businesses do not bring in extra staff to help with mounting business demands, and workloads tend to be delegated to the employees who are here (and already drowning under their own pile of work). So how do we manage our workloads, be merry and remain sane all at the same time:

1. Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize! I usually have a spreadsheet built listing all my projects by deadline and importance. The more urgent goes first, and the rest gets re-arranged as effectively as possible. Ain’t nobody trying to be Superwoman…

2. Set clear expectations! Before any major holiday or busy time at work, have a talk with your manager and team, so as to set clear expectations! Do not overstretch yourself when you know it’s unlikely you’ll be able to deliver! Give yourself some extra padding room and plan accordingly!

3. Take time for yourself! In the midst of the holiday shuffle at work and at home, plan some time for yourself. Request time off in advance, block off some time away even from family (lengthy showers and bathroom breaks do count), and take a breather! The better you are, the better your life and work is (and the safer everyone around too…)

How do you manage your workload during the holidays?

Coffee Break: Is it OK to Discuss Controversial Events at Work?

Photo: http://blackmenconfrontingthelies.blogspot.com Photo: http://blackmenconfrontingthelies.blogspot.com/caption

Yesterday’s events in Ferguson, MO, and the controversial conversation ensuing on and offline for many of us, made me think about how much impact recent news events can have on our career. Is it ever OK to discuss controversial events in the news at work? Some topics such as politics, religion, or even your own health, can land you in pretty hot water at work. How about hop topics in the news, possibly with racial and/or social ramifications?

While some may argue that discussing controversial issues and topics at work ay help in resolving them, others may think it’s best to avoid them for fear of others being too sensitive or offended by it.

My $0.05: If you can’t discuss it with your boss, don’t discuss it at work! If there’s a slight chance it may make someone uncomfortable, save the talk for your friends and family. Keep it professional.
