It’s the 21st century, and family is anything but simple!  Keeping track of where you were for which holiday, which year, and trying to split your time equally is unreasonable, not to mention impossible.  On top of it all, you have to try to divide your time between your incredibly complex family and your spouse’s!  Everyone says that the holiday season is supposed to be about family, friends, and the spirit of giving, but what often ends up happening is giving too much of yourself to try to please everybody.  Stress has a scientifically proven, huge impact on your immune system, and letting yourself get pulled in every direction will only leave you with a headache and a cold for the holiday season.

So, it’s time to get back to the basics.  Light yourself a pumpkin or cinnamon spice candle, sit down in your favorite comfy chair, and give yourself a moment.  Start by asking yourself what it is that you want to do this year.  Whether that means going to your mom’s for a home cooked meal, celebrating with your best friend, or shutting yourself up in your room with a “Bah Humbug!” sign on your door, the important thing is to start by figuring it out for yourself.  Next step, talk with your spouse or significant other, and decide what would make you happy as a couple.  Even if it means changing a long running tradition, or doing the exact same thing as last year.   Give yourself the gift of a holiday with less stress.

Don’t forget to take time to enjoy the changing seasons, the brilliant colors, the cold air, and the taste of a homemade pumpkin pie.  Read an inspiring novel or one of your favorite classics.  And finally, start planning early so you don’t feel that last minute crunch.  Here are some great decoration and gift ideas to give you a head start:
