Holiday stress! Trim the trimmings this year

Are there chores, events, or activities that you can remove from your holiday checklist this year, thereby reducing your stress?

If expectations from family and friends pin the success of the season on you every year, it may be time to take care of yourself by reducing the level of magnificence you are accustomed to delivering.

Eliminating even one event or simplifying gifts for distant relationships can reduce the sensation of feeling overwhelmed. Examine the checklist that is beginning to form, and give yourself the gift of less.

Move some of your “must haves” to the “nice to have” column, and discover whether trimming the trimmings has you enjoying the season more.
