How to Survive the Holidays with PilotsFriend

The holiday season is here, which means it's time to relax, spend time with friends and family, and enjoy the holiday cheer! However, as you look forward to the holidays we know you may be anticipating some stress as well, especially this season as we navigate celebrating the holidays during the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether you will be dealing with long flights and travel days or planning the family dinner, the holidays can have their low moments. That being said, the holidays are meant to be enjoyed! Here are some tips for how to skip the stress and do just that.

Tips for the Holiday Season

One great way to reduce the stress of the holiday season is to plan ahead! If you know you will be getting gifts for friends and family, start brainstorming now so you don’t feel rushed to come up with a good idea last minute. If you can purchase your gifts beforehand too, that’s even better! You’ll be able to rest easy knowing you have it all ready to go. One good way to reduce gift waste is to purchase a roll of wrapping paper that will work for all your gifts, and to collect gift bags as you receive them so you can reuse them when you give gifts! Additionally, energy is going to be your most important resource when it comes to the holiday season. Make sure to order a pack of PilotsFriend to give yourself naturally occurring caffeine that will make you feel energized and ready for anything the holidays throw your way! PilotsFriend also makes a great gift for any family members or friends that you believe are hard workers and could use a push to get them through their days!

Holidays During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s holiday season is unique compared to previous years. Unfortunately, in order to stay safe and practice social distancing, we may not be able to have large gatherings to celebrate the holidays we love. However, there are ways we can still get the most out of the holiday season! One way to ensure the least amount of contact is to have virtual dinners! Even if you can't be with your loved ones in person for a holiday dinner, you can sit down with them via Zoom or Facetime and talk with them as if you were in person sharing dinner. Another way to spread some holiday cheer during this not-so-traditional holiday season is to send your loved ones gifts, or even food! If you don’t live too far away, you can use insulated packaging and send perishable/food items through the mail, that way you can exchange your favorite holiday food staples! If you won’t be coming into contact with the people who you’d normally spend the holidays with this year, arrange a holiday gift exchange and send each other gifts! That way you can put a smile on eachothers faces, just from a distance.
