SURVIVING THE STRESS OF THE SEASON

Christmas is just around the corner so it’s time to start getting ready!

It’s easy to get stressed out during the holiday season but a little advance planning will make it easier for you to relax and enjoy yourself! Here are a few ideas that'll help relieve the seasonal stress:

Shop Early
Shopping ahead of time (with a list!) means less stress later on. You’re also more likely to stay on budget rather than panicking at the last minute and overspending.

Shop Local
Our local businesses have been through a lot but you can help reduce their stress this holiday season by hitting the local shops instead of buying from the big box stores.

Keep it Together
Keep wrapping paper, tags, tape, scissors, cards and stamps in one central spot. If you wrap as you go instead of doing it all at once, it’ll help get you into the Christmas spirit!

Expect the Unexpected
Make sure to have a few pre-wrapped "stand-by gifts" on hand for those unexpected occasions when a gift is needed immediately.

Although the holiday season is full of joy and laughter, it also comes with increased demands that can weigh heavily upon us. If you manage the pressure by planning ahead, you'll be able to relax and enjoy the season instead of just surviving it.
