    I agree the holidays can be stressful, but there are great tips on how to minimize the stress!
    I definitely agree with purchasing gifts in off-season months. I already finished shopping for everyone on my list & it’s great not having to worry about it during December.
    Also I only go to 2 family events (one on Christmas Eve and the other on Christmas day), which is manageable!

  • Nilakshi

    Great post! You have provided some thoughtful tips to work and reduce stress. Holidays are great yet hectic, these tips will help many! Thanks for sharing.

  • Sarah

    These are really good tips for keeping that holiday stress to a minimum. I used to get so stressed around the holidays, but now I find them more manageable, likely because I live far away from a lot of the stress inducers – my family. Shopping ahead is something I have done for years now, partially to avoid the crazy crowds but mostly because I live far away from most shopping, so I need to get it in before the snow sets in and I’m cut off from traveling to do the shopping.

  • Rebecca @ Boss Single Mama

    Great tips for reducing holiday stress! I love this time of year but it always gets so hectic that I don’t enjoy it as much as I should. These tips are a reminder to focus on what’s important and avoid the holiday season overwhelm.

  • Carolyn

    This is a great post! I’ll definitely keep these in mind moving forward (especially a pre-holiday de-cluttering, what a great idea!). Though there’s not much I can do about my difficult relatives. Thanks!

  • Alice

    You are totally right. I bought my presents a month ago in order to avoid the holiday rush, and I kept a strict budget of 150 dollars or less for all gifts combined. Well written post xx

  • ashleigh davis

    You’ve got some brilliant tips in here! I try to make sure I’m well organised so it’s not stressful! Stress management is key!

    Thanks for sharing!

  • CrazyFitnessGuy

    I know this feeling all too well. I try to set my own budget and my family always like but we spend more money on you why can’t you spend more money on us? I tell them because I don’t work full time and i am in college and yet some how every year I have to spend over my amount.

  • Matthew Lovett

    Stress management is so important, especially during the holidays when things get crazy. It’s sort of popular opinion that we’re supposed to wear ourselves to the bone for our family and friends no matter the cost during the holidays. These are the moments when self-care is more important than whether or not the casserole comes out just right! Great article.
