6 Tips To Stay Calm During The Festive Period



Running a business and organising a Christmas can be a lot to handle.  So we wanted to share with you our tips for making things run a little more smoothly. Here are our 6 tips to help you stay calm during the festive period.



Reduce Trips To Town

Reduce trips to town and do as much as you can online. If you haven’t got one already, then get yourself an Amazon Prime Account.



The Extra Present

No matter how hard you try, you can forget people or be left unexpectedly needing a gift. It is a good idea to buy a filler gift. A gift that is generic and that most people would like. If you do not end up using it- bonus gift for you! 



Shared Calendar

Create a calendar for you and your significant other, or for anyone else that needs to coordinate their plans with you. This prevents double booking.



Group Message Alerts

Group message can be overwhelming when there is so much talk that you do not need to be involved in. So instead have a policy that you only get tagged into the comment if you are required to take note. This will save endless scrolling. Slack or Facebook Messenger is excellent for this.



Say No

Do not say yes to everything you get invited to. Be honest if you are tired. People only get upset if their expectations are not managed. 




Or whatever you do to practice self-love and mindfulness. Now is not the time to forget to look after your mind and body.

Remember that this time is to be enjoyed. Don’t stretch yourself too thin, practice self-love and breathe. It will all be ok.
