Christmas Shopping…Wow! Another year gone by in almost the blink of an eye.
Christmas is one of the most celebrated holidays on the planet.
And, with just 13 Christmas shopping days left, we can make this a festive holiday season without spending a fortune, giving to everyone and doing it all!
A simple quote that sums it up nicely:
As we give presents at Christmas, we need to recognize that sharing our time and ourselves is such an important part of giving. Gordon B. Hinckley
Four simple tips to manage your stress when Christmas shopping:
1. Plan your budget. And it’s not too late to trim your list with just 13 Christmas shopping days left. If necessary tell people that you are cutting back on gift giving this year. To your surprise, they’ll understand and most likely feel relieved! Most of us have too many ‘things’ in our lives anyway.
2. Make time for others – your relationships with others is the greatest gift of all and provides timeless and priceless memories.
Christmas is a time for everyone to give, not just you.
3. Engaging family members in helping with the chores could mean all the difference between you enjoying Christmas or simply enduring it.
4. Take time for yourself. Make time for quiet, relaxing activities. It’s even okay to disconnect from technology. Cell phones and computers have off buttons. If it’s really necessary for someone to connect with you they will call on a land line or drop in.
Keeping things simple, spending time with loved ones and asking for help can make this Christmas truly a celebration to remember.
