The holidays can be a very stressful time of year. Take a few moments to think ahead and write down your plan. Make a timeline of when you need to have things done like shopping, Christmas cards, travel plans, etc. Make checklists to make sure you don’t for get anything. And relax- this is not the time to try to be perfect in everything you do. Your family and friends live busy lives as well—they will understand if you don’t get your cards out until after the New Year or if you have some clutter around. The holidays are a time to be with family and friends. Remember to enjoy them and don’t work yourself to death planning and doing– enjoy the moment.
