We all feel it! That increase in pressure at this time of year when we have more to do and we also need to find the extra cash to do it. This can leave us feeling frustrated that we are not enjoying the Christmas period like we should do and it can have an impact on our self-confidence too.
This week I left myself 5 minutes to get ready for a Christmas party – Yes 5 minutes! By the time I had finished all I had to do I had just enough time to brush my teeth, throw on a party dress and apply some hasty make up. However, once we arrived and met up with all our friends, the hustle and bustle was all forgotten and the wine and atmosphere took over. Next time, ‘I will finish work earlier’ I tell myself marking a reminder in my 2020 diary there and then. Whether it is the Christmas party, drinks with family and friends or simply a leisurely walk out to get some fresh air…why not schedule the time in your diary and make sure you set plenty of time aside so you can take in your surroundings, and enjoy the preparation? We all live busy lives now and it is important to plan for relaxation…or it may never happen.
When my children were young I remember each year we would go for long walks to look at the Christmas lights in the gardens and windows in our neighbourhood. It really got us in the Christmas spirit. I’m planning to do this again this year and who knows…one of my adult children might join me!?
