  • Start early – now is the time to start shopping. The longer you procrastinate the harder it will be the find the inventory and the more competition you will have out there. If you want to avoid busy crowds get out there now before it’s too late. Getting to the stores when they first open is also smart. Write your list and get to work!
  • Shop online – this was an epiphany I had a few years ago and my life has forever been changed for the better. Online shopping is a great way to save time, money and avoid stressful situations. It takes a little getting used to but online shopping is convenient and retailers are making it super easy to return items when necessary. Give it a try you will thank me later.
  • Keep it Simple – often times we put unnecessary pressure on ourselves to find the perfect gift. The pressure to impress and deliver can be quite stressful leaving us feeling angry and resentful. Think of ways to simplify your holiday season, perhaps this year you give everyone gift cards or find one great item and give everyone the same gift. There is a reason why Oprah’s favorite list is so popular. Don’t over think it.

Most people already have their plate full without the holiday festivities. This year take care of you. Don’t over commit yourself, get plenty of rest, eat well in between the Christmas cookies and remain active whenever possible. When it comes to gift giving don’t stress yourself out it’s really not worth it. Keep your focus on what’s the reason for the season and you will reduce stress and truly get to enjoy the holidays.
