As I mentioned already, I enjoyed spending time this past weekend with family and friends but those fun times can also be very stressful. Already my calendar is filling up with committments during the month of December. For many of them I will need to shop for a present to take and make a dish of food to share. Of course, the parties will be a lot of fun and it will be wonderful to see everyone during the holidays but even good fun things can add stress to our lives. I love to bake and decorate my home but today I find myself twitching at the thought of needing to get my greenery up this weekend while it is still green. So even though I enjoy both the process and then end results of decorating, I am struggling a bit with actually getting it done. Of course, it is early days yet but I just know that the closer I get to Christmas the busier life will become.
What are some ways you cope with holiday stress?
