Don’t stress about Christmas!

December 21, 2020

The big day is right around the corner and everyone is running around trying to make last minute preparations, trying to buy the perfect gifts, and figuring out who you can and can’t see this year due to all of the new restrictions. It can become quite the headache! That’s why we have written some ways to help you keep your stress levels low this Christmas.

It’s the thought that counts

One of the biggest stress factors when it comes to Christmas is the cost of everything. Even if you have the perfect gifts in mind for everyone, people appreciate the thought a lot more than the gift itself. Given the current climate, many people will not be in positions to buy lots of gifts for people, even if they normally go above and beyond to treat their loved ones. Keep an eye out for sales, to see if you can find the perfect gift at a discounted price. Consider setting a budget for yourself and focus on making one financial decision at a time. Take things slowly to avoid getting stressed out.

Also, consider supporting local businesses! You may be able to find the perfect gift at a lower price whilst supporting independents. This applies to food as well. Many people rush to the supermarket to pick out the perfect Christmas turkey, but your local butcher is only a five-minute walk away, and they provide high quality meats and also offer bulk deals and special offers every week.

Stay away from the sweets!

During this period, make sure that you are aware of the habits that you develop when you are stressed. Many people tend to over-indulge on sugary or fatty foods or more consume more alcohol than usual when they are stressed out – so try and keep the number of treats and drinks around to a minimum, as over-indulging on these kinds of (tasty) things over prolonged periods of time can increase your chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Make sure that you have plenty of healthy food around, as having a balanced diet can help prevent the development of such diseases.

Consider how you feel too!

If you are usually the person who makes the plans and arranges everything, it can be incredibly stressful trying to cater to everyone and keep everyone else happy during this time. That’s why it’s important to remember these two things: It is okay for YOU to say no, and it’s also important that YOU have fun and enjoy yourself too! It can be difficult at times to say no to demands around Christmas, but sometimes you have to.

Consider the recent changes that are in place, and the members of your family who may need the support and company the most. This includes your elderly loved ones who may not have had the chance to see many people this year. Remind yourself that it’s okay to have priorities, and most importantly, that your thoughts matter too! It’s not selfish to consider your own mental health during the happiest time of the year.

Have fun!

The most important way to reduce stress over Christmas is to make sure that you are having fun and enjoying yourself! Let people know if you need any help, because we’re all only human, after all! Get involved with the festivities, catch up with your friends and family, and don’t be afraid to have a few extra pigs in blankets on the 25th.
