It’s a little hard to believe, but the holiday season is knocking on our door!
Are you ready?
I don't know about you, but around this time of year I used to think 'this year will be different'. Of course, that was before all the craziness would start!
For example: "this will be the year where I'm not making trip after trip to the grocery store"..."this will be the year that I'm not spending a small fortune on last minute gifts", or maybe "this will be the year that I'm not stressing about getting ready for the big day", and so on.
Then the season would actually start and the same cycle would happen again year after year. I often spent the holiday season 'burning the candle at both ends' and getting sick just after everything is done (or worse, at Christmas) because of all the stress and letting myself get run down.
Each year I would feel like I was running around in circles, working as hard as possible but not getting enough done. Definitely not enjoying the holidays. Relaxation was wishful hoping.
Speak nothing of the majorly overblown budget...
Does this sound like you too?
I absolutely hate that feeling of always scrambling and trying to 'catch up".
I knew that I need to make some changes if I wanted to find joy during the holiday season.
I realized that part of my stress was the constant effort to keeping a running list in my head of everything that needed to get done. I was desperately afraid that I would fail...that I would forget something important and ruin the holiday season.
So I developed a system several years to keep myself on track.
But more importantly, my system allowed me to get that huge list out of my head and organize it so that I was spending my precious time on the most important tasks.
Focus on the more pressing tasks while letting everything else go for the moment. Don't think it's possible?
And I'll show you how to do it too.
The Made In A Pinch Holiday Planner is intended to help you create more joy and less stress around the holidays. It is the exact system I use myself to help me prioritize my time, set a budget, plan our meals, create a gift list, and organize our holiday events.
It is, literally, a sanity-saver!
