How To Get Through The Holidays Without Feeling Stressed

On television and in movies, the holiday season is depicted as a time where people are happy and joyful. While it’s true that spending time with friends and family and enjoying seasonal goodies are both quite enjoyable, most people know that the holidays can be downright stressful. Between buying gifts and staying on top of holiday parties, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the most magical time of the year.

How To Get Through The Holidays Without Feeling Stressed

It’s possible to navigate the holiday season without feeling overwhelmed by stress. Here are some tips on how you can scratch off all the items on your holiday to-do list without feeling stressed or overwhelmed.

Stay Organized

Many times, feeling stressed has less to do with your obligations and more to do with the fact that you failed to manage your time wisely. It’s typically not until we’ve fallen behind on our to-do list that we begin to feel stressed. If you want to avoid feeling stressed during the holiday season, stay organized. Use either a physical planner or a planning app to create a schedule for yourself to ensure that you stay on top of everything you need to get done. This is also a great way to manage your holiday shopping list.

Simplify How You Buy Gifts

How To Get Through The Holidays Without Feeling Stressed

When it comes to those truly special people in your life, you might need to spend a bit of extra time really thinking about what gift will make them smile. However, when it comes to people like your coworkers or neighbors, don’t stress yourself out by overthinking it. Remember, it’s the thought that counts! If you need a simple gift that is sure to leave a good impression, try a preprepared gift basket. These gift baskets require very little work on your part, since you can easily order them from online stores, such as https://www.thesweetbasket.com/en/29-christmas-gift-baskets.

Take Time For Yourself

Just because you’re trying to take care of other people’s needs doesn’t mean that you should neglect your own. During the holiday season, it’s smart to schedule some time that’s just for you. Perhaps you can treat yourself to a spa visit or a day at the movies. Maybe you’d prefer to just spend a day at home relaxing and recharging. However you choose to spend this time, make sure that you’re doing something that will reset your stress levels and help you feel better equipped to handle holiday stress.

Know When To Say No

If you’re a parent, then you know how easy it can be to end up committing to ten different obligations for your children’s schools or various extracurricular activities. This is especially true around the holidays. While it’s stupendous to want to be an active parent and an enthusiastic volunteer, you’re not helping anyone if you bite off more than you can chew. Knowing when to say “no” can help you to avoid becoming stressed. Plus, you’ll be able to do a better job on the tasks that are truly important to you if you don’t have too much on your plate.

Focus On The Good

How To Get Through The Holidays Without Feeling Stressed

The holidays aren’t meant to be stressful. Rather, they’re meant to be when you spend time with the people you love and reflect back on what you achieved over the year. When it comes to the holiday season, it’s important to focus on the good things instead of focusing on the things that are making you feel stressed. Anytime you feel yourself becoming stressed, just pause and think about all the good and wonderful things you love about the holiday season. If you maintain a positive outlook, you’re less likely to become stressed during the holidays.

Holiday shopping and planning can be stressful, but you don’t have to let the season overwhelm you. If you follow these tips, you can have an enjoyable holiday season and manage your stress the right way. Remember to take time for yourself and to remember to cater to your own needs.

Our Relaxing Sri Lanka Holiday – June 2017

I am back after one month long holiday! It was a really relaxing holiday after our Sri Lanka holiday in 2016 October. however we were affected by the recent flood disaster in Sri Lanka too. We planned this holiday during the school holiday month, so we could enjoy a month long relaxing time among the friends and relatives. My kid was the happiest among all.

We reached Sri Lanka on May 27th, however due to heavy floods we couldn’t visit many places during the first two weeks until my husband’s leaves are over. 🙂  He returned Singapore in 2 weeks and we spent the rest of days visiting some places.

Relaxing Sri Lanka Holiday

Picking Rambutan direct from trees was an exciting experience for Sanu!

As always I use our time in Sri Lanka to give more different experiences for our son. It is time for him to play as he wishes. I also packed some of his favourite toys, colouring books and some busy bags too. Colouring books are always helpful to keep him busy in airports and in first few days till he adjusts to the new places.

It was the Rambutan (a tropical fruit) season in Sri Lanka.It was nice that we could enjoy delicious Rambutan and Sanu got the opportunity to pluck directly from the Rambutan trees.He also enjoyed his time running over paddy fields which I believe as treasurable moments for him.

Relaxing Sri Lanka Holiday

Sanu had opportunity to spend time running over paddy fields!

This time, I spent more time relaxing and without working online. I had to plan the future as I am in a struggle between taking decision on doing a full time job or working from home. Though I like working from home, it doesn’t allow me enough time to concentrate on my work. On the other way, a full time job will come with more stressful moments although it is with fixed monthly income for me. Finally, I decided to try another few months working from home on engineer related jobs in more organized way! That’s the best outcome of this relaxing holiday in Sri Lanka!

We spent time on Buddhist pilgrimages

Other than relaxing, I could plan few pilgrimages to Buddhist places with parents. We really enjoyed our days.

The blog will be updated with exciting products, giveaways and tips/advices posts. Stay in touch! How was your days?

Our Holiday in Sri Lanka

We spent a long holiday in Sri Lanka. If you’ve noticed I didn’t update the blog with our travel stories after this post about My Little Giant indoor playpark. We visited Sri Lanka for holidays at the end of October and spent there till the mid of December. It was a great holiday for my kid to spend his time with the grandparents and other relatives.

Other than his time with grandparents, we also visited some attractions in Sri Lanka which are specially good for kids. Sanu, our kid saw the elephants in Pinnawala Elephant orphanage. This is his first time to see the elephants in real as we miss the opportunity in our first Singapore zoo visit.

Next to the Pinnawala Elephant orphanage, there is also a zoo which is newly built.(Or still under construction).Although there are no many animals to see, this zoo is good enough for a little kid to spend the day.

At the Pinnawala Zoo,Sanu was happy to see this life-cycle of a crocodile.As we read about the frog life-cycle at home,he wanted to show us that he knows the concept 🙂

Sri Lanka Holiday

At the Pinnawala Zoo (I will update my travel blog leisureandme.com with our travel stories of these places)

Other than such attractions, Sanu spent his time playing with his cousin sister Imalsha and it was the happiest time for him.

Night time experiences such as watching fireflies, bats and hearing the sounds of howling dogs are new experiences for him which we don’t experience in Singapore. He also experienced his time running around the home gardens.

Sri-Lanka-Holiday

Monkeys are a common sight in Sri Lanka,they come to eat fruits and really annoying.However,these monkey attacks were enjoyable for my kid to see 🙂 (Its a monkey on our roof)

Sanu also had his first haircut in a Barber Salon Sri Lanka.Until that,I used to cut his hair.It was not an enjoyable moment for him.Anyway,below is a photo of him after the hair cut.We visited to meet some friends with his new hair cut 🙂

Anyway, we are back to Singapore and I am still trying to come to my daily routine. I really miss my time which I spend reading other fellow blogs. With new school term, we are busy with sending Sanu to Preschool, but I am glad still I could find some time to write a blog post.
