The holidays are a busy time of year and any holiday time saving tips can help relieve some of the seasonal stress.
The key to avoiding many stressful situations is planning. It’s also a good idea to start early. Many Southwest Florida residents have already started holiday plans.
Holiday preparations tend to hit full stride just after Thanksgiving although retailers started selling Christmas decorations before Halloween.
The twinkle of holiday lights start lighting up neighborhood streets the end of November. By the beginning of December, you can start plotting holiday light display maps.
For many, the holidays are the busiest time of year. If you haven’t started planning, you are probably a little behind. However, there are many steps you can take to ensure a happy holiday with little stress.
Holiday time saving tips
Start early and plan: Stress often stems from deadline pressures. People get in a panic trying to do things at the last minute. When tasks are rushed, you may not get the results you want.
This tip applies to work and home life. If you are rushing to get work done, you might make mistakes. If your business gets busy around the holidays, try to get done anything that can be done early. Anything you can do before your busiest time will be one less worry at your most stressful time.
You also don’t want to leave personal tasks until the last minute. If you wait too long, the special gift you wanted to purchase may be sold out. Christmas Eve shoppers have limited choices.
Prepare for guests: Make sure the sheets and towels are clean and ready for guests. Is the guest room clean of clutter and pet hair? You may need to send the comforter to the dry cleaner.
Ask for help
Delegate: Whether it’s at work or at home, you probably have people who can help. Don’t shoulder all the responsibility if you don’t have to. Even taking a few small tasks off your list could be a big relief.
Don’t hesitate to hire the pros to help, too. You can take laundry and dry cleaning off the list by calling Champion Cleaners and letting us pick up and deliver your clothes and household items in Estero, Bonita Springs and Naples, FL.
Relax and enjoy: Take time to enjoy the holidays. Everything doesn’t have to be perfect.
Remember what the holidays are all about. It’s not about the gifts, decorations or food. It’s about sharing time with friends and family. For many of us, it’s also about celebrating our faith. It’s not the material things that matter. Embrace peace, love and joy this time of year and always.
