Another year has come and gone. Instead of working long hours and weekends this next week, we hope you are taking time for yourself. You have earned it. Whether you are running a business, still in the works of creating your own, interning for your dream job, or currently working your dream job, you have worked hard this year. 

Did you know an average American works around 1,800 hours per year and works approximately 260 days a year? To say most of our time is spent at work is an understatement. Our jobs are our lives and it is important to relax and reflect this time of year. 

What has made your year great? What are you thankful for? How can you give back to others? These questions, and many more, are all things you should be asking yourself as we wrap up 2019. You have a couple more days to worry about what resolutions you should start in the upcoming year, so here is a challenge for you. These last few days of the year enjoy the people, moments, and things that made the past year great. 

Whether that means spending time with family, traveling to your favorite place, or just creating a day of all your favorite things, do it. Whatever makes you happy, do it. Enjoy these last few days of the year so you are recharged for 2020. 

When the time comes, and you are ready to create some New Year Resolutions, we have already created a list of tips and tricks for you. So no need to worry about that right now.  

From all of us at Monkey VA, we hope you have a great holiday season and an even better New Year. We look forward to exceeding your New Year Resolutions next year, but until that time comes we are going to take our own advice and enjoy the remainder of 2019.
