The Holiday Season is here so make sure YOU are part of the celebration this holiday season and enjoy quality time with your family and friends.
The secret to having everything run smoothly this holiday season is to plan ahead and keep things off your agenda that really don’t belong there.
- Make a list of all the activities that you would like to participate in this holiday season.
- Include your preparation time such as gift shopping, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry and other preparations if you have guests coming for a few days. Be sure to add travel time if you are going to a party or visiting family out of town.
- Evaluate your list and decide which tasks and activities are a “must” and which ones can be left off your calendar and then SCHEDULE everything! Are there tasks that you can delegate or outsource? Most importantly, just say “NO” to anything that will not enhance your holiday!
We all know that exercise is one of the best stress managers. However, when the hustle and bustle of the holidays comes along, it is the first thing we skip. Do not compromise on your exercise! Also, make time for “quite time” such as Yoga, Meditation or just sitting in a quiet place. Make the time for exercise and quiet time and you will breeze through the season with a new energy. Your family and friends will thank you!
Shop from the Comfort of Your Own Home
The internet has made holiday shopping simple! It is so nice to get most items off your various lists without fighting the crowds. By shopping early, you give yourself peace of mind and free up time for all those other little things that make the holidays so magical.
Remember – – the holidays are not about perfection, they are a time of celebration! It’s a time of letting go and truly enjoying the ones that make your life the special gift that it is.
The best gift that you can give your family and friends this holiday season is YOU! So make sure to slow down a little this holiday season and make lasting memories. Cheers!
Happy Holidays 2016!!
