The holidays can be a stressful time of year, especially if you are in charge of picking out holiday gifts and planning parties. Check out these tips to help you bust stress and enjoy the holidays:

Tone It Down: You do not have to top last year’s celebration. Remember, the holidays are supposed to be a time of celebration for everyone – that includes you. Try not to stress yourself out cooking everyone’s favorite dish or making sure every package has a perfect bow. Your friends and family will love you just the same – even if you only have one kind of pie.

Just Say No: Holiday parties are a great way to celebrate the holiday season. However, when you cram your schedule full of parties, you may begin to feel stressed out and overwhelmed. While they may be fun, you are not obligated to attend every party. Choose the ones that fit your schedule, and enjoy the holiday spirit!

Stick to a Budget: The holidays can be a financially draining time of year. Whether it is setting a limit on presents or budgeting for the holiday feast, managing your funds can help ease your stress. Before shopping for presents or groceries, set a budget limit and stick to your list.

Take Time for Yourself: Do not let a busy calendar distract you from self-care. If you have a busy day ahead of you, make sure you pencil in some “me” time. Taking some time to enjoy a cup of coffee, read a chapter of a book, or even singing along to your favorite holidays songs are all great ways to decompress.
