Have A Stress Free Christmas
With all of the activity surrounding the Christmas season, it's almost hard not to get stressed by the end. There are some things that you can do, though, to make it a bit more bearable.More Resources for Simplifying Christmas
Shop online or via mail order catalogs where possible.
You won't need to wade through huge crowds, you can shop in your pajamas, and you have access to a much larger selection of gifts than you would have in brick and mortar stores.
During Christmas, many online retailers offer special promotions on shipping.
You might even end up saving money (no gas to pay for, and you can compare prices online easily).
If you end up shopping in brick and mortar stores, make a list beforehand and stick to it.
It is a lot easier to adhere to a list versus wandering around aimlessly for hours in the stores.
For this, you might want to consider taking friends along with you.
You can go to the mall, shop separately, and meet up to relax over a cup of hot chocolate or coffee later on.
Learn how to make lemonade out of lemons.
If you know that you have to go to a dreaded dinner with certain relatives, for example, then invite a few friendlier people along.
Try to break up the chores and do a little at a time.
For example, if you decide to cook Christmas dinner, you can cook certain things the day before so that you aren't in such frenzy the day of Christmas.
If you give out Christmas cards, put the pile by your nightstand, and write out a few every night before you go to bed.
Make a goal.
When you have a destination point, you can visualize it.
Decide to be complete by December 22nd, for example, so that you can relax the next few days.
You might even consider listing out your goals and due dates.
Exercise is always an immediate mood lifter.
Take as little as 20 minutes and go for a walk.
You will reduce stress hormones and increase your endorphins, thus putting you in a much more relaxed state.
It is very easy to eat more than you normally would, with all of the parties and cookies being passed around.
However, when you eat too much, you'll feel stuffed and uncomfortable. Eat smaller portions and be happier.
Take time outs for yourself.
Take as little as 15 minutes a day. Listen to relaxing music, go for a walk, or paint your nails – whatever will make you happy.
These 15 minutes can absolutely revolutionize your day.
Follow these tips, and by the time Christmas comes around, you should be as upbeat and radiant as your Christmas tree.
You can also save money and be unique, by making your own Christmas cards this year.
