Tips for a Stress Free Holiday Season

wreath2Around the Holiday season, people tend to get quite stressed out, which could lead to getting sick. This could be as a result of many things but, we will not go into those because, we want this blog to be positive! Here are a few ways to help manage or reduce the amount of stress you have during the Holidays.

  • STRESS FREE SHOPPING – YES! This is possible, believe it or not!!! The internet can sometimes be intimidating, but most sites now are very user friendly. I find shopping online is generally quite relaxing. Especially since you don’t have to wait in line and you can basically be at 5 different stores at the same time, cool, huh? The majority of the stores are very competitive, which means that you would typically get Free Shipping along with your purchase.  

If you would rather shop at a store, try to go early, for example, 5 minutes after they unlock the doors, will almost guarantee you first dibs on checkout.

Wrapping presents in the same day in which you buy them, will save you hours of frustration! Lastly, keep all receipts in case something goes wrong.

  • Make a list and set a budget – Making a list is a good way to organize yourself and check things off as you complete them. Setting a budget allows you to know what you can spend without having to constantly worry about if you’re spending too much.
  • Don’t feel obligated – Obviously you will have obligations but, remember that it is ok to say NO. Also, don’t feel like you need to attend every single Holiday event.
  • Ask for Help – You don’t have to be alone and do everything yourself. Many times, people will be happy you asked them for help because; it will make them feel needed as well.

These are just a few tips for having a stress free Holiday. Please remember to make sure you also get plenty of sleep and take some time to relax and watch a movie or just go for a walk. I hope everyone has a great Holiday!
