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.
