Now that October is behind us, it's time to start focusing on the most wonderful (and potentially stressful) time of the year: the holiday season. Ironically, many business professionals find that the holiday season is coincidentally their busiest time at work. Keeping a cool head while traveling for business during the holidays is essential for both personal and professional happiness.

One thing all travelers must work toward is making sure that business travel doesn't get in the way of their personal well being. The Huffington Post recommends taking some time to "get away," even during business travel. It can be beneficial to spend non-working hours exploring your new city, and recharge with a good night's sleep.

Who ever said you couldn't accomplish personal obligations during business trips? Drive your car rental to local shops in your temporary city. Trinkets from new and exciting cities make great holiday gifts. Not only will your family and friends appreciate your originality, you'll get your shopping done ahead of time and avoid last-minute panic.

If you're away from home and realize that you haven't cleaned the house for your upcoming holiday party, don't worry: Rug Doctor offers a holiday hotline for customers who have last-minute cleaning needs. Give them a call, ask your cleaning questions, and get back to work - problem solved!
