Discussing :: Tips to reduce stress during christmas


Shop now!


Start shopping early!! There are plenty of pre-pre-Christmas sales on! It's also not as busy this time of year, so it beats standing in those looooooong cues at Xmas time!


Seriously, we don't particularly follow Christmas tradition and people may think it's a terrible thing because you miss out on gifts/good will.. but you don't. It frees up your time and money to concentrate on things that really matter like spending quality time (hopefully at a quality place) and gifts can happen any time during the year and be useful things/things people actually like. Don't get caught up in a tradition based obligation because it isn't!


Xmas is a very casual time for us and 15 yo son usually wants his presents early so he can play them at release time - yep- usually PC/PS3/XBox games- so the pressure comes from outside the family to get busy and do stuff.


Buy presents early! So easy!


To maintain your health and sanity in the lead up to Christmas - shop early, and preferably on line, and avoid shopping malls and that tiresome Christmas musak.


Delegate most of the work to others.This will keep your Xmas Day stressfree and you can enjoy your guests company.


get some chill out pills ho ho ho


If you have dogs then get out in the fresh air for a long and lovely walk with them... I have five but one is my daughter's dog and I seem to babysit him all the time...:)


Stress is self induced from sometimes unrealistic goals we set ourselves, learn to chill out and relax.
