How To Keep Yourself Feeling Calm and Relaxed While You Are Getting Ready for Christmas and New Year 2021

Christmas Is Coming!

With Christmas and New Year literally just around the corner, may I take this golden opportunity to let you have a few straightforward hints and tips on how to manage preparing for all the jolly festivities, while keeping yourself all calm and peaceful regardless of whatever else may be going on in your life. There is still about three weeks of November in which to get things done, but I would strongly advise that you do not just sit back and wait around for 1st December to come along. If you do this, you will simply find that you just do not have enough time and space available in which to do everything you want to do, and go to everything you want to go to, before the 25th December arrives. Ideally, it is probably best to start preparing for Christmas way back at for example the beginning of October, so that you can give yourself more time to sort out your priorities.

During the next week or two of November, the first thing you need to do is to compile your Christmas list of the most important things you need to do. Your very first priority should be to make a financial budget for yourself, so you need to put something like, “Make A Budget for Christmas and New Year, And Stick To It”. Many people write down all the things they want to go to, and all the Christmas presents and cards they want to buy and for whom they are intended. They then go and buy each and every one of all these things, and then wonder why they have fallen into debt.

What you should ideally do next, is to write down on your list all the people for whom you wish to buy a gift, and what you are going to buy for them, and another list of people to whom you want to send a Christmas card. When you have done this, you can then go ahead and plan some Christmas shopping trips, but make sure you give yourself plenty of time for each trip, so that you are not rushing around from one place to the next. Spread your shopping trips out so that you can organize your money better. You really need to be able to do all this in a calm and relaxed manner, so that you can enjoy what you are doing.

By the end of November, with some careful planning, you should have bought all the Christmas presents you wanted, including some treats for yourself, and neatly wrapped and labelled them all. You can now consider attending to the ones that need to be posted, especially if there are some that need to be sent abroad to friends and family, for instance. You can also write and post all your Christmas cards, as well. You will start feeling very pleased with yourself if you get all your Christmas presents and cards sent off before the beginning of December.

Also in November and December, you can start preparing your home, especially if you are hosting Christmas dinner, or a Christmas party, and you might be having guests staying. Give your whole house a thorough deep clean everywhere. Make sure your dining area especially is thoroughly clean, tidy, and very comfortable. Give yourself plenty of time and space in which to do all this. When you have done all the cleaning, you can thoroughly enjoy all the decorating in December, after you have bought all the necessary decorations (or when you have retrieved your existing decorations from the attic or the basement, or wherever you normally keep them).

May I mention and suggest here, that amidst all the hustle and bustle of this time of year, it is absolutely essential that you try and make sufficient time for yourself. In the month of December, you could consider using certain tools to help you keep calm and relaxed while getting ready for Christmas and New Year, and at all other times, too. You would do well to choose something that may be new to you, such as hypnosis, which is very calming. Hypnosis is natural and safe, and extremely relaxing. After a hypnosis session, you will find that you are feeling totally relaxed and very calm, and you will also experience a sense of total ease and comfort, and great peace of mind.
