Christmas Calmness… for Humans

How do you keep calm and collected in the week before Christmas? I always find that the week just before Christmas is always the craziest. Panic sets in, there is so much to do with so little time to do it in.

Do you have regrets at not starting your preparations earlier?

I certainly do. How come December has galloped its way through, and here we are, less than 2 weeks to go? Where did the time fly? The one thing that really helps me is to:

  • Make lists, putting down everything I can think of that I will possibly need for the few short days of the Christmas break.
  • Create a daily task list, and give myself plenty of time to complete the tasks.
  • And of course, stop panicking!

It doesn’t really matter if every single thing is done in time

As long as you sort out the important things, such as food and drink. You may not want to forget all the presents and cards you need to buy, but as long as they are on the list, you should be ok. Perhaps you can cross some things off the list, once you have prioritised. This can really bring your list into a reasonable amount of tasks to do.

Enjoy the time with your loved ones

But most important of all to remember is to make sure you give yourself time to look after you. You certainly don’t want to get to Christmas Day and collapse in an exhausted heap. I hope you all enjoy your Christmas with your family and friends, and have a wonderful time. This is a great opportunity to let go of stress and remember what’s really important – sharing our hearts.
