I realize when I suggest that holiday planning and tasks should begin by November 1 each year, that a majority of people think that is a crazy idea and impossible. Right? We think we have to get through Thanksgiving first before we can even think about Christmas.
Well, I am suggesting that if you want to avoid holiday stress, you have a choice and that taking eight weeks for holiday preparation is reasonable especially if you want to stress less for the holidays.
So even if you aren’t fully on board with the eight-week plan, using some strategies to make progress on your holiday “to do” list can ease the burden.
