Tips on Coping With Holiday Stress

With holidays looming, the pressure’s on: decorating; scheduling and rescheduling; baking and cooking (or – let’s be honest – ordering and catering!); finding the perfect gift; trying to avoid long-check-out-lines-and-only-one-cashier rage.

In a KidsPeace article called Tips on Coping With Holiday Stress, there are a few pointers on how to actually enjoy the season, and they basically all point to moderation. Lower your quest for perfection; recognize that kids go haywire when over-excited and off their schedules; ask for help or delegate tasks completely (and accept the results with unqualified thanks).

I shop online as much as possible – since I’m an e-retailer, it’s not much of a stretch for me. And when I’m forced to do brick-and-mortar, I put on my hat and get to the store five minutes before it opens (looking eager sometimes gets me in earlier).

Thanks for reading,
