Remote Work Can Make the Holidays Longer

Remote Work Can Make the Holidays Longer

With Remote Work, the Holidays Are Longer. Is That a Good Thing?

The holidays are over, and you’ve likely spent your time with family, friends, and coworkers. You might even have made some new friends along the way — people who are new to the remote work world, of course.

And now, the new year is starting, and you’re starting your job search. That can be a stressful and confusing period, to say the least. It’s especially stressful if you’re moving to a new job from a new city or state, and you have no idea what your new position will even be. So it can be easy to be stressed out just a few weeks before the clock starts back for another year.

But how can remote work help you get through this stress? By forcing you to look forward to the new year — even if you’re not sure you want to. By making the holidays longer and happier, remote work actually makes the holidays more like the ones you know from home.

You can spend Christmas on a beach in Hawaii, you can spend New Year’s Eve on the beach in Maine, and, if you’re a beach bum who still has to work (and who is also a human being), you can spend both of those days on the beach.

Why is it that remote work makes the holidays longer?

Let’s try to define that for you. We define holiday season as that time from November to around January 2 every year when we get to spend time with our family with no obligations, meetings, or interruptions. It’s called the holiday season because, in many countries, “holiday” means “holiday.” The holiday season is a time of year where we feel loved, valued, and appreciated.

So, for the sake of simplicity, let’s call the period from New Year’s Eve to New Year’s Day (and, if necessary, beyond) the Christmas season, and the period from January 2 to March 1 the “Holiday Season.”
