Setting Boundaries to Manage Stress During the Holiday Season

It seems like it has been FOREVER since I have written a blog!

BUT, I have still been working. Increasing videos on IG and YouTube, speaking engagements, and more so if you have not been seeing those things be sure to keep up with me on my socials.

I recently did an IG Live on this topic and thought I should also put the steps here for you all.

Unfortunately, stress is inevitable during the holiday season. We are so busy between holiday parties, shopping, volunteering, kids programs, church engagements, and everything else it can be a lot to handle!

So I want to share these tips with you to help you manage during this season.

As I was doing the IG Live I realized that a lot of these all go back to setting boundaries just in different areas.

1. Gifts

As far as gifts...make a list before you go to the store. The list should include who you are purchasing gifts for, what you are purchasing, and a spending limit for each person. It will be tempting when you go in the store to buy other things that you think a person would like but you have to stick to the list. There may be people that get gifts for you that you did not intend to get gifts for and now you feel obligated to get a gift for them...stick to the list.

2. Rest

Being busy during this time can make rest seem like a fantasy but scheduling time for yourself is vital.
