A Stress Free Festive Season

The busiest time of the year is just around the corner. Does this thought fill you with dread? It doesn’t have to! This year I am determined to have a stress free Christmas and so should you, they don’t call it the most wonderful time of the year for nothing! Follow our top tips for having a stress free season.

  1. Remember you can say no

    Feeling overwhelmed and tires is not enjoyable for anyone especially at Christmas. You can still spend time with people all through the year, you do not have to fit everything in to the festive period.

  2. Make lists

    The best way to make sure that no-one and nothing is forgotten is to write everything down, from to do lists to shopping lists. Having clear lists always helps you manage the busy period.

  3. Start early

    The shops do this, so why can’t you? Get ahead of the game so you can enjoy the Christmas period without the stress and worry.

  4. Don’t overindulge

    Look to escape that guilty feeling by knowing your limits. Don’t load the cupboards with naughty treats that you bought for guests but actually end up keeping for yourself. People will still enjoy your company without piles of food!

  5. Keep it simple

    Do you say the words “we’ll just have a quiet one this year” and it never ends up that way? Make a plan and stick to it – know what you can handle and don’t exceed this!

So get yourself ahead of the game in time to actually enjoy Christmas! Spend time with friends and family and don’t forget your me time – Christmas is a time for you as well!
