‘Tis the season not to get stressed…….

I’ve been finding myself getting a little stressed this week.  I’ve got a lot on work wise, I still have the Christmas wrapping to do, presents and cards to deliver and cooking to organise, that’s on top of having an awful lot on at work, and fitting in those last important gym sessions keeping me nicely toned for Christmas.  I’m sure everyone is feeling pretty much the same, so I just wanted to remind you of a few key things to remain relaxed and enjoy your holiday season and distress ready for 2012.

Manage your time – Most of us use some kind of to do list.  Make sure everything is written down so that you’re not worrying about what you might forget.  AND prioritise.  You might want to make sure that everything is attended to in the finest detail, but don’t stress out over the things.  Remember that it might be more important to enjoy your time than whether every present has a bow around it.

Remember what is important – Everyone is entitled to enjoy their Christmas Day and that includes the cook.  So what if you don’t have absolutely ALL the trimmings with your turkey.  It’s the people you’re eating the turkey with that are important.

Take our some ME time – I’m a big advocate of ME time.  At Christmas its as important as ever.  If you want to disappear for half an hour for yoga, relaxation or just time out there’s no need to feel guilty.

And most of all – remember to have a wonderful time.
