Lists – when I can get everything out of my head and on to a list I can actually feel my “stress level” going down! I like to make my lists in pencil, so I can easily erase things. Erasing is exhilarating as I remove things from my list that I decide I really don’t want to do! It is much easier to “move furniture” on paper that using your back – so to speak! I do like to check things off too, when they are what I want to do, and they are completed. Suggested lists: activities that your family has decided to participate in this year, activities that you want to host, cookies you want to make, gifts you want to give etc. I think you get the idea as you see the words “you want to” – this is the key to a less STRESSED Christmas! It really doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing! Tailor your festivities to fit your family and the season of life that you are in right now; there will be other Christmases to do other activities (or not) it’s up to YOU:)! Don’t forget to check out “Day One” in case you missed it!
