The holidays are coming up fast, and most of us are in a mad scramble to design our perfect holiday plans. During this season, cheer is in the air, but making that picture-perfect Christmas isn’t always easy! As the date gets closer, keep these mental health tips in mind to stay sane during the last days of the holiday season.
Plan, Plan–and Plan!
This year, we are acknowledging that “winging it” is a recipe for creating stress during the holidays–and that is why we are trading it for careful planning. To make sure that your Christmas plans stay on schedule and everything gets handled, it is time to make a list and check it twice–a to-do list, that is. Focus on highlighting key events, deadlines, tasks that need to be completed, and who will be involved.
Keep Communication Lines Open
One of the biggest stressors during the holidays is poor communication. For some reason, every year, we all forget that no one can read our minds. To keep the conversation light and happy this Christmas, focus on making sure that everyone feels comfortable sharing any key information. A group chat with loved ones can keep everyone informed!
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help
So many Christmas hosts make the mistake of thinking that they need to manage everything themselves, and it is guaranteed to end in disaster. Remember, the holidays are all about celebrating with the people that you love most. These are people you know and trust, so don’t be afraid to ask them for a little help around the holidays when you need it.
Take Time to Decompress
Chances are that you have already been working overtime to create that Christmas magic, and it is only going to get harder as the deadline approaches. Taking time for yourself is essential to maintain your comfort and happiness.
Pushing stress away and finding time for yourself is easy when you use aromatherapy as a form of self-care. You can use shower bombs to turn your bathroom into a home spa. Aromatherapy shower steamers are perfect for anxiety relief, so you can keep a cool head during the holidays–even when things go wrong. We recommend the the Shower Steamer Multipacks as they are a great way to stack up for the busy holiday season. See the gallery below to buy!
Don’t Worry–You’ve Got This!
The holidays aren’t always easy, but they are always worth it. Whether you are getting a couple of toddlers out the door to see family or hosting Christmas yourself, be sure to take care of yourself so you can enjoy the holiday you contribute to. At Cleverfy Beauty, we are proud to help you support your mental health so you can walk into Christmas with a big smile on your face!
