December is going to be quite a slow month, but the mind and the body are not in sync. Bills that you did not expect will pop up unexpectedly and there may be a lot of confusion trying to get things done. You’re not in a rush, but mentally you may feel clouded and those little things may seem to pile up and make you a bit stir crazy. You want to take care of things, but what do you do with everything on your plate? Basically you may feel as if your mind is trying to rush while you’re walking through quicksand.
A word of advice: don’t get ahead of yourself! Take each event as it comes and only deal with what is currently in front of you. A foggy mind will normally get overwhelmed and sometimes procrastination sets in and action ceases. Making a list will help a great deal, and setting time aside to eliminate distractions to get your work done may prove to be the best solution.
Even if you pride yourself on multi-tasking, I wouldn’t recommend it this month. Answering your cell phone while you’re trying to get work done will only cause more problems. You will need total silence to finish your tasks from beginning to end.
Financially, those unexpected expenses may have you frustrated, but don’t worry. January is a money month, so pay off all your bills in full this month even though you may think you can’t. Don’t let those finance charges creep up, and start the new year off on a clean slate. You may also realize that you forgot to pay some bills in the previous months, so you may have double payments from previous months.
All in all, this overwhelm make make you feel a bit down in the dumps. Just know that things will bounce back and you will feel a lot more energized in January! It’s best to slow down now, and have some private time with those you love.
Have a great holiday!
