Discussing :: Tips to reduce stress during christmas


go with the flow!!


Someone else said 'just go with the flow' and that's pretty good advice. If someone else wants to stress about Christmas and who's going to sit next to Aunt Mary when she's had too many sherries, don't let that stress flow on to you. Christmas is usually the one decent holiday break most of us get and it simply isn't worth letting it get ruined by your own or someone else's stress attacks...


I think buying for too many people can over extend people's finances. I think cutting back to close family and friends is the best.


Always have some ME time and relax yourself and treat yourself, have that little time can be great over the festive season


Start shopping way before xmas about October,take a shopping list and shop at night without the kids:)


Get everyone to help out with the Christmas meal...don't just make it one persons responsibility! And shop early!


It all comes down to Planning, If it's you cooking Christmas Day get yourself organised at least 2 days before so not left until the last minute, prices for food are dearer Christmas week, delegate if you have guests coming so it doesn't all fall on the one person, you also need time to enjoy the day


Stop and walk away from stress for a little bit. Think of something that generally makes you smile (something your little one did maybe) and focus on that


I am trying to get one thing done every night - get tree, decorate it and house - check. Wrap presents - check. Write cards and post - check. Stops my brain from being overloaded! Seems to be working.


Just breathe and remember it comes around once a year! Don't leave your shopping and everything to last minute, that will make it more stressful for you.
