Its that crazy time of year again. How do you deal with the stress this time of year?
This week, we are discussing:

Why can't it be the smart season?

What makes it silly?

Like 'choose'day news - are you ready for the silly season on Facebook

Well here we are again. Just a few weeks from Christmas and I already see and hear people getting stressed. What do I buy as presents? Where will I spend Christmas day?  How do I fit everything in? Will I have enough money? What do I bring, cook, etc. for the big meal? We make such a big deal of Christmas that many people find it one of the most stressful times of the year. And then of course there are the family gatherings. Where no-one yet realises you have changed, grown and have different ideas to them. Blended and seperated families also mean Christmas can be a lonely time, or a day spent driving from one place to another to another. 

For some lucky people Christmas is a time to spend with those they love and everything goes smoothly. For many though the minute you are reunited with those you grew up with, you are expected to step back into your 'role' in the family drama. Maybe you are the quiet one, the diplomatic one, the funny one or the one who just can't seem to get their act together. 

This year why not rebel? Either refuse the play the role (unless you love it) or create your own Christmas tradition. If you are single, have an orphans christmas. Invite your friends, who are also alone,  to join you. More and more people are going on holidays at Christmas time. Perhaps you might just want to sleep in till lunchtime and then go to a restaurant. Whatever you do make it something that leaves you feeling great at the end of the day. Use christmas as a time to relax, take some time off from the working world, enjoy the company of those you love and steer clear of those who stress you out. 

Have fun. 

Til next time



“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
