5 tips that will help you stay organized during the holidays (you can count them on one hand!):
- Learn to Say “NO”
You don’t need to attend every holiday party or give to every charity or toy/food drive. Choose the ones that mean the most to you.
- Plan Ahead
Take the time to prepare for the next day. Lay out your outfit or if you have children lay out theirs as well. Prepare lunches or plan meals. Create your to do list.
- Attack Clutter Daily
Take 15 – 20 minutes at the end of the day to tidy up.
- Avoid Gift Wrap
Use gift bags instead of wrapping all your gifts. This will save time and help you avoid storing the unused wrapping paper, ribbon and tape.
- Remember to Breathe
Often during the holidays you don’t have time for exercise. But we always have time to breathe. Take 10 deep breaths every day. This can be done any time of the day. It will help you relax and reduce stress. Staying organized during the holidays can be stressful so it’s important that we breathe!
While the list of tips could be a mile long of all the things we should do, these 5 things that are quick and easy will definitely assist.
