Everyone surviving holiday craziness so far? It’s a ton of fun and so busy at the same time, right?! With two boys—one who is old enough to be VERY excited, haha—and the normal duties of being a working mom, this season can be nuts. But this year, I’m dedicated to staying organized, stress-free (as much as possible), and I wanted to share 5 ways I’m doing that:

Holiday Accessories

Instead of relying on buying new outfits for holiday events, I’m picking up fun accessories—think a sequined clutch, velvet shoes, festive statement earrings. These can match with other dresses or outfits I already own, so I’m not only saving money but also making things easier.

Zen Driving

 Parking lots are insane this time of year, but instead of getting frustrated or letting road rage get the best of my holiday spirit, I’m giving myself a few extra minutes to get places and driving slow. It’s amazing what a little mindfulness can do when handling something like traffic and parking lots.

Hostess Gifts

 I mentioned in this post that having wrapping paper on hand saves so much stress, but during this season I also like to store hostess gifts. Whether that’s a box of sweets, holiday candles, or hand lotion, having general thoughtful gifts on hand is a life-saver.

Me Time

It’s easy to get wrapped up in your to-do list in December, so it’s especially important to keep up the self-love. Even if it’s a quick bath or 10 minutes of reading before bed, having some amount of time that’s just for me each day is helpful.

Volunteer

Instead of focusing solely on presents and monetary items, I love volunteering my time to a shelter or something similar. This is great for the soul, and it’s what the holidays are all about! Teaching the boys to take time for others is beautiful, and it’s nice to take a timeout to realize how grateful we are—and that the to-do list can wait.

How do you stay sane during the holidays? Let me know in a comment below!

Hope you have a great week!

    Utilizing your ability to just say NO…. because those of us who think we can “do it all” tend to have more on our plates than we need to, especially during holidays! This one is always hard for me but I’ve learned over the years. 🙂

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering
    issues with your website. It appears like some of the text within your posts are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if
    this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any ideas? Cheers!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and interesting,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.
