Find Time For You In The Festive Chaos
Dec 12, 2011

The combination of cold winter weather, rushing around preparing for the Christmas festivities and fulfilling the needs of those around you can affect your health and wellbeing. Here are some great ideas that will help you to wind down so you can thoroughly enjoy the Christmas holidays.

Simply Relax
Find some quiet time, perhaps when the children are in bed, to simply wind down and relax. Dim the lights, light some candles, play some soothing music and chill out for a while. Empty your mind of your to-do list and worries, and just take some time out to recharge your batteries. If you find relaxing difficult, enjoying a nice warm bath with a good book will help you to escape your thoughts.

Keep Travel To A Minimum
With the rising cost of fuel, travelling from house to house visiting relatives is becoming less economically practicable. If you can avoid it, stay at home so you can remove some of your stress caused by this additional planning. If you and your loved ones have the technology, Skype each other so you can pass on messages of love and goodwill. Of course if you can’t avoid travelling at this time of year, involve everyone in the packing process so the total responsibility doesn’t fall on you.

Stay Active
Ensure you stay healthy by enjoying some physical activity at least three times a week. A walk with a friend, a visit to the gym or a swim with the kids are all things you can still enjoy at this time of year.

Say No
Don’t over commit this Christmas. If you are getting pulled in all directions, stop taking on more tasks. It’s likely everyone – your immediate and extended family, friends, work and the school PTA – all want your help in some way. Prioritise the things you want to do and say no to the rest.

Lower Your Expectations
Stop trying to make this ‘the best Christmas ever’! What will make it special, especially for your children, is if you and your partner are relaxed. Remember ‘perfection’ is an idealised concept that cannot be achieved. Stop trying and start enjoying!
