Dear Accomnews readers,
With Christmas rapidly approaching, we’re hoping business is booming and you don’t have time to read newsletters – however entertaining and informative they may be.
We’re taking a break until the New Year but will be back on 14 January.
Thank you for all your support and feedback over the year – we always love hearing from you and work hard to bring you the most current and well-researched accommodation news coverage possible.
Best of luck over the festive season and a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Accomnews team.
Below is a little food for thought ahead of the summer rush…
Christmas survival Guide
While other industries wind down from December 24 to enjoy the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, property managers continue working through this busy period to service the numerous travellers and holidaymakers who head away for their annual break.
With the pre-Christmas rush and the busy summer holidays looming, December is always one of the most stressful months of the year. So how can you take a chill pill and manage that never-ending ‘to do list’ this December? By looking after yourself first as a priority, so that you are fit to look after your business!
With Christmas approaching very quickly, it is important to plan ahead to avoid the stress and panic once the holiday season arrives. As most people tend to stress over completing their Christmas shopping, we suggest you start planning ahead of Christmas; as soon as possible. If you are hosting a Christmas dinner this year, start stocking up with supplies (food, drinks, and gifts) as soon as possible. By planning ahead, you will ease the pressure, leaving you to enjoy Christmas with your family and friends.
Take time to enjoy the holidays
We recommend during the Christmas holidays to actually take some time for yourself to enjoy the break. We know this period of the year is the busiest of all, so take this opportunity to cherish it with your friends and family. Taking the time off to make most of the festive season will help you avoid being over worked, which will leave you feeling refreshed and revived once the new year comes around.
Indulge without overindulging
Let’s be realistic here – Christmas is a time to put your happiness first and enjoy yourself, but keep in mind that a little moderation will go a long way! Balance out the extra food and alcohol you’ll likely be consuming with a healthy lifestyle during your downtime. Exercise regularly, eat nutritious foods, keep hydrated and get plenty of good quality sleep.
Last, but not least, we know preparing for Christmas can be stressful but it should also be fun and enjoyable for everyone. It is a time where all your loved ones get together and celebrate a very important holiday. To make it a memorable and entertaining Christmas, try doing something different every year.
