Holiday Season Stress: Lack Of Time

By: jayzn
One of the biggest problems any of us face during the holiday seasons is a lack of time. There is simply so much to do - parties, family time, shopping, cooking, watching your television shows and so much more.

How can you possibly fit it all in and get it all done without getting stressed?

If you are prepared and have planned for the holiday season, then you will find you have much more free time available. You will know what it is you need to do and when it has to be done by. With all the demands and pressures upon you, you almost have to plan your holiday seasons with military precision to avoid undue stress.

If you have planned and prepared, then you will be able to complete your entire gift shopping early. This makes you feel really good as buying gifts in the crowded stores is a big source of stress.

You can reduce your stress further by shopping online and not even going out to the stores! Then all your gifts are delivered to your door and you can do your shopping at a time that is convenient for you, even if it is the middle of the night!

During holiday seasons you are going to be inundated with invitations to events and gatherings. You do not need to attend all of them. Attend the ones you want to go to and turn down the rest.

Make sure you take some time for yourself. Running around from party to party can be very stressful. Take some time out for yourself and for your family and you will feel much less stressed. Many people feel guilty at taking time for themselves, but it is really important if you want to avoid stress and be more relaxed.

Holiday seasons can be more stressful for some people than others - mothers and wives often find they have more stress because they are expected to cook, clean and entertain. If you share the jobs around the house then you will be less stressed, the jobs will be done quicker, and you will find more time to relax and enjoy yourself too.

Managing your time becomes particularly important during the holiday seasons when so many demands are put upon you. Learn to reduce your stress through careful planning and thought and you will find the holiday seasons become much more enjoyable again.
