With a little effort you can breeze through holiday stress triggers:
Accept Your Cluttered Home: Entertaining in a cluttered home can be stressful. Kindly remind yourself that guests are not there to judge – they’ve arrived for drinks and cheer! Do cursory dust-busting, toss blankets over piles and wipe surfaces with citric cleanser. Abundant candles, bowls of snacks and a dazzling outfit will keep visiting eyes on the prize (you!).
Be Charitable: In this economy, the need to help others is greater than ever. Make gifting easy with a charitable donations on behalf of family and friends and save the presents for the kids. Visit www.charitynavigator.org for a list of organization, or purchase gift cards so recipients can pick for themselves.
