Your event is just around the corner, you are at a standstill. You still need Sponsors, Volunteers and to hire that DJ. Stop. Take a breathe. This uncomfortable feeling you have, the uneasiness and restlessness, its part of the job. That is why YOU were chosen out of all the other applicants to do it. The rush of 6 months prior to your event can be overwhelming, exhausting and every day seems to go by faster than the day before. Here are some tips to  keep things in order, stay healthy and accomplish your goals.

START SMALL

Instead of having one main goal – a successful event. Create small goals for yourself including daily goals. For example:

TODAY:

– check emails

– follow up with 10 potential sponsors

– reserve chairs

EAT WELL

Stress can cause sickness and exhaustion. Keep your body healthy by making time for yourself. You may feel like you do not have time, but you do. Taking 30 minutes – 1 hour a day  for a walk, workout, yoga or reading a book will reenergize your body and create productivity. Besides, wouldn’t you rather take 30 minutes each day and be well or a week off work because you are sick, which will set you back and be more stressful?

SLEEP

You may find it hard to sleep at night with all the worries in your head. However, maintaining a normal sleep pattern 6 – 8 hours a night will absolutely keep your blood pressure down, help you to focus and maintain and proper work day. Don’t worry too much at night, there is always tomorrow! Just leave it at work and enjoy your pillow. Some tips to help you sleep – nighty night tea; lavender pillow spray or a warm bath. Enjoy!
