1., Buy and decorate your Christmas tree early. This way you will get into that festive mood and you feel like you have managed to do one of the most important tasks.
2., Divide your house into sections and write a cleaning check list. This way you will not forget anything and the more ticks you have on that list, the more you can calm down.
3., Buy things online. You will save a lot of time not standing ques and not traveling. But try to select the goods from online stores you already have good experiences with. It is not fun to recieve a package full of poor quality products on 22th December.
4., Meet up friends and ask them what and where they bought presents for their loved ones. You might get excellent tips. :)
5., Sit down and drink some hot chocolate. You will feel more motivated after a sort break from the stress.
6., If you have no idea, time or money at the moment, create a self-made coupon for a later experience. The best present you can give someone is your own precious time.
7., Magnesium+B6 - very good against stress and even helps you to sleep better. :)
How about you? Do you have any secrets to make it through the holiday season?
Did you know that in some countries like Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, the Check Republic. Slovenia and Poland Santa Claus arrives to celebrate his day on the night from 5th to 6th December? To get the presents, children must polish their shoes, because Santa does not fill boots that are not shiny enough. Maybe you should polish yours tonight as well. Who knows...? :) XX, Pippi
Have you already decorated your house for Christmas? One of my aunts visited a few days ago and she was kind enough to entertain A so I had some time for decorating. It is not perfect yet but surely close to being it. :) However, I still need some pieces. How about you? What colours do you use this year? Thanks for stopping by. XX, Pippi
