Who just doesn’t love this season? After all, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the entire year, right? However, this season is also the busiest and most stressful time as well. If the holiday season is leaving you feeling a little less like Santa’s little helper and more like a Christmas Grinch, now is the time to prioritize what you want to get accomplished and find ways to a less stressful holiday season. Herein you will find some tips to help you simplify the tasks at hand so you can go back to enjoying what you love the most about the holidays.
Ways To A Less Stressful Holiday Season
1. Lower Your Holiday Expectations & Events
Seriously, we all have that one idyllic image stock in our heads of how the Holidays should look like, but in reality, the Holidays are what we make of them. So, if you have that vision of the perfect postcard Christmas in your head, this is the time to revaluate that and lower your holiday expectations. Give yourself a break this year, which trust me, Christmas will be perfect no matter what because your loved ones will be there to celebrate with you.
This also goes to those of you with a list of endless holiday events that have to get done or Christmas wouldn’t be the same. Again, try to limit the events to just a few. Of course, there are events that cannot be missed but not everything is a must-go event. Decide in advance how many events you can handle during the holidays and firmly stick to that decision. For those last-minute events that come up, simply gracefully decline and enjoy those you are able to attend.
2. Don’t Go Overboard, You’re Not Martha Stewart!
It seems like nowadays, everyone is expected to be a combination of Martha Stewart and Bob Vila. You are expected to deck the halls with over the top decorations and serve an amazing 5-course gourmet dinner at the same time. Please stop torturing yourself and don’t let people’s expectations stress you out. After all, a simply decorated home will be perfect because your family did it with you.
Now for the perfect holiday meal, I love cooking during the holiday, but if I had to pick between spending quality time with my family and cooking, I will choose to spend time with my family any day and twice on Sunday! Thankfully, you and I can serve the best holiday meals with a bit of help from DoorDash! That’s right, if you haven’t heard of it, DoorDash is a prepared food delivery service.
So, remove the stress of preparing a wonderful meal by placing your order from any of your local restaurants or national chains from the DoorDash menu on their website or their app and spend time relaxing with your family while your food gets delivered. It is that simple!
3. Give Yourself a Break To Remember What The Holidays Are Really About!
The Holiday season is all about family togetherness, spiritual enlightenment, and camaraderie, right? So, this is the time to give yourself a break, enjoy those precious moments, and make new memories with your loved ones. Give yourself a break to remember what the holidays are really about by stopping what you are doing right now and enjoy all the blessings in your life this holiday season.
