The holidays are all about traditions. Those traditions cover everything from how you decorate your house to annual viewing of favorite holiday movies. It is a time to appreciate all that you have and enjoy creating memories with friends and loved ones. Of course, the holidays can also be a time of clutter and stress. There are ways to stop that from happening. Consider the following:
Getting Rid of Stress
Stress occurs when you take on too much and the things you do take on don’t fall into place. Taking on too much during the holidays usually means waiting until the last minute to get things done. The closer we get to Christmas Eve, the more crowded the malls can become. That means looking forever for a parking spot and waiting forever in checkout lines. A lot of that stress can be reduced if you do shopping online. There are many online stores that will even ship the gift wrapped up. Talk about a time saver!
Reducing stress also means picking priorities when it comes to social outings. Obviously, kids recitals should be top of the list but you don’t have to go to every friend’s or relative’s parties especially if you’re going to see some of those same people at a different event. If there is a choice between you being rested so you don’t get sick versus rushing to one more party, then the choice is obvious.
Getting Rid of Clutter
Planning a holiday open house can be stressful if you don’t get help from family. You can leave a lot of the house cleaning chores to the family.

It is fun to occasionally be the smartest person in the room. It certainly helps when you’re playing Trivia Pursuit! You might know a lot about a particular topic and would classify you as “expert.” What about recycling? How much do you know about that topic? Yes, you probably recycle everyday but do you know the facts and figures behind recycling? You will after reading these facts:
Did you recycle a soda can today? That simple act created enough energy savings to let you listen to a full album on your Smartphone. When we recycle one ton of plastic, we can save up to 2,000 gallons of gasoline. That’s because it actually takes less energy and recourses to make something from recycled material as opposed to making it from original materials.
Various cities and states across the country have instituted special recycling laws in an effort to achieve zero waste status. New York was the first state to ban e-waste from the trash. Things like old TVs, computers and other electronics have to be recycled or you could face a $100 fine. Speaking of television, that same soda can you recycled could also save enough energy to run your television for two hours.
The trash we generate can become a direct harm to the creatures we share the planet with, especially those living in the ocean. Although we’ve greatly improved our recycling efforts, there is still 14 billion pounds of garbage dumped into the ocean each year. Most of that garbage is plastic. That means it’s not going to break down or disappear.
Recycling paper is all about saving trees. One ton of recycled paper represents 17 trees that won’t have to be cut down.
Recycling isn’t just an American habit. In Finland, 9 out of 10 plastic bottles are recycled. They also recycled 100% of glass bottles. That’s impressive by anyone’s standards.
Making soda cans out of recycled aluminum saves up to 95% of the energy cost that would go towards processing new aluminum. That’s a big boost for companies and for the environment.
