Less stress?

Women often feel the most pressure to plan, shop, cook, decorate and coordinate the seasonal festivities. We try to do too much, for too many friends and family, in too little time. There are good health reasons to avoid holiday stress. This season holiday stress doesn’t have to be part of your holidays. Taking positive actions now to plan the upcoming season will increase the enjoyment of a beautiful time of year. Here are some things to keep in mind…
·         Start planning early
·         Determine who will help, and delegate
·         Cook ahead
·         Limit the events you attend
·         Decorate gradually
·         Shop early and off times
·         Don’t forget your workout or “me time”
·         Get enough sleep
·         Eat health balanced meals
·         Enjoy!

As a busy mom with 3 little ones and a fulltime job I can sympathize with the stressed out mommy! The holidays are jam packed with “to do’s” and not enough fun! This year I have made a promise to myself to slow down, smell the gingerbread  and enjoy the holiday  with my family! How do you plan to enjoy this holiday with your family?
