I know from personal experience that Christmas can be a manic time. A wonderful time of seeing friends and family, but an exhausting one too.
With family in Derbyshire and Bristol, both a 3+ hour drive away from my hometown of Brighton, I’ve sometimes returned to work in January more exhausted than I was before the holiday season.
