Why you need a Family Holiday Calendar!
For years the holiday season would roll around and my stress levels would sky rocket! Enter the family holiday calendar. A couple of years ago I decided that I would no longer let the holidays own me! Nope! Instead I realized that with a little organization, the power of yes…and some no’s here and there, I could control the chaos.
For many of us, the holidays have become a hectic time. Holidays should be an enjoyable time spent with family and friends, instead we find ourselves attending event after event, spending more and more money and by the time its all over we missed the point of the whole holiday season.
A family calendar is the perfect way to put your priorities in order and actually enjoy the holiday season.
Here is my December calendar! As you can see, its not filled with parties and too much stuff. I only put important events and things my family and I will enjoy. Do events come up at the last minute? Sure. I may say yes, I may say no. My goal is to enjoy the season with my family without all of the feelings of overwhelm.
The holidays don’t have to stressful. With a little planning you can actually enjoy yourself this hol
