As the pandemic drags on, many of us are under more pressure than ever before at work. Perhaps your company was operating at a loss during the first few months of the pandemic, and now—half a year later—it’s regaining its footing and you’re juggling multiple new projects. Maybe your team laid off workers, and you’re forced to pick up the slack. Or maybe you’re trying to get a new side hustle off the ground.

These fluctuations at work are stressful. And even pre-pandemic, there was already a tendency to view overworking as a source of celebration. A more lenient time of year—such as this holiday season—can help recenter us and clarify what goals we want to achieve when we’re back at our desks.
