Fatigue can set in anytime for any working parent—but it’s especially prominent during the holidays. It’s funny, isn’t it? When we’re children we’re so pumped about the holidays that we don’t realize how worn out our parents are—and it’s from making the holidays so special for us to begin with! (Thanks, Mom and Dad.)
To stop fatigue from setting in—or to recover from it—try one of these tips.
