Christmas by Design: Tips, Strategies and Inspiration for the Most Enjoyable, Stress-Less Holiday Season Ever!

Creating a stress-less holiday season doesn’t require dreaming smaller, just better planning.

Christmas is such an exciting time, filled with grand intentions, joy and goodwill and a vision for the perfect holiday season. It’s also loaded with the inevitable stress triggers … too many commitments, too much shopping and preparation to do, end of year work responsibilities, crowded stores and family gatherings.

The problem is our perfect plans too often hit stumbling blocks … someone gets hung up at work, some of our favorite ornaments are broken or the Christmas tree lights are hopelessly tangled. We run out of money long before we get to the end of the gift list, or the turkey comes out dry when we have a house full of hungry guests. We never seem to find time to bake those holiday cookies we were going to share with the neighbors, there’s a part missing from the new toy, or the kids can’t stop bickering.

Planning isn’t about creating one more thing for you to do, it’s about freeing you to experience the true joy of the season.

The good news is that a lot of holiday related stress can be reduced, if not eliminated entirely if we would recognize ahead of time what our vulnerabilities are, and plan accordingly.

Christmas by Design is packed with tips, strategies and inspiration to help you create a less stressful, more fulfilling holiday season. Ultimately, it’s about creating more memories … learning to focus on the things that really matter, and letting the rest go.
