The holidays can be the most magical, joyful time of the year. They can also be full of hectic schedules and, to be honest, their own brand of stress. This year, I’m determined to have a stress free holiday season and I’m inviting you to join me as I share the steps and tools I’m using.
Have yourself a stress free holiday season!
Join Us on October 22nd!
Life can be busy and chaotic at any time of year, but it seems to explode with activity around the holidays. There are always so many things we want or need to do and when we add those to our normal daily life it can turn a joyous time into a stressful time. We don’t have to let it become stressful. With a little bit of dreaming, a dollop of goal setting, and a dash of planning, we can be ready to embrace the joy of the season and let go of the stress.
The Scatter-Brain’s Guide to a Stress Free Holiday Season
In this series we’re going to cover a lot of ground. I’ll be sharing my tips and tricks for how I embrace the chaos of the holidays while minimizing the stress that comes along with them. I’ll be honest, it’s taken me a few years to figure out what works best for me at this time of year. There are always so many things I want to, feel I should do, and other bright, shiny things that come along and pull my attention in a new direction. That’s life as a scatter-brain on any given normal day, but it can be so much more overwhelming during busy times of the year, like the holiday season.
Throughout this series we’ll be:
- thinking ahead to what we want to do this holiday season
- determining what needs to be done to make it happen
- setting priorities so that we can zero in on the things that really matter to us
- ditching the should’s and focusing on the needs and wants
- creating goals for how we will approach the holidays
- setting some boundaries so we don’t over schedule or over stress ourselves
- putting together a holiday planner to help keep us on track
- figuring out what we can do ahead of time to free up time during the holidays
and having some fun along the way!
It all kicks off on October 22nd!
How It Will Work
Starting on October 22nd, 2018, I’ll be posting a new blog post each day of the week for two weeks. I’ll also be sending out an email each day. The email will give a quick recap and include a link to that days blog post. This way you can decide if the topic is something that pertains to you or is something you don’t really need.
There will also be a Facebook group that you will be invited to join in the first blog post. This way we can keep the conversation going, share ideas, thoughts, and tips to help each other have a stress free holiday season. Every day I’ll post a link to that day’s blog post.
If this all sounds like something you’d like – feel free to sign up using the email sign-up form below. This form does NOT add you to my newsletter list. It is just for this series. At the end of the series I will be deleting the list.
