time is a time of joy and happiness; at least that is what is supposed
to be. But, most ordinary people would admit that it can also be
a hectic time filled with stress and rushing. The good news is that
there are some simple things you can do to relieve stress and create
a joyful and memorable holiday.
Planning can be your best defense against chaos during the holiday
season. Plan everything! Sit down with your family and discuss the
activities and events you would like to participate in. Fill in
the calendar to help you to remember the dates and times of those
activities. Plan out your gift list. Plan out your meals. The more
planning you do beforehand, the more prepared and less stressed
you will be.
Once you have decided on possible activities for you and your family,
prioritize them. You must be realistic with your time. When it comes
to Christmas activities, there is an endless list for you to choose
from. You can’t possibly do them all. Even trying to attempt
such a feat can suck the joy out of even the jolliest of people.
Choose those activities that you and your family really enjoy the
most. If you have done things in the past out of obligation more
than your own personal satisfaction, consider dropping them from
your agenda this year. This should be a time of memory making, not
a time of dreaded obligations.
Even with the most organized agenda, Christmas shopping is often
an unavoidable drudgery. Even the shopping can be a joyful part
of your holiday experience, though, with a little forethought. Start
with a realistic budget. Overspending is often the biggest cause
of stress during the holiday season. This stress is one that is
bound to last through the New Year if you overspend. So take the
time to figure out how much you can spend all together and then
allot appropriate amounts to the people on your list. Once you have
an idea on how much you can spend on each gift, brainstorm gift
ideas that fall into that range. Consider giving family gifts as
opposed to gifts for each individual member.
Even knowing your budget and sticking to it cannot do anything
to tame the holiday crowds. Try to go shopping when it is not so
busy. Early mornings and late nights are a great time to get a lot
accomplished with less of a crowd. The stores are usually not as
busy in the middle of the week either. Aim to get out at one of
those times and you will be able to get a lot more accomplished
with your time.
Remember to involve your family in the holiday festivities and
preparation. Your kids will love to be a part of it all. Let them
help with some of your to-do list and you both will be happier for
it. Most kids would love the opportunity to decorate the tree or
wrap Christmas presents for you. That makes one less thing for you
to worry about and gives you more time to experience the joy that
this wonderful season has to offer.
