How to survive the Festive Season

How to survive the Festive Season

As the festive season fast approaches us again, and if you are one of the people who struggle with all kinds of difficult emotional and stressful seasonal situations, this article is for you.

From money worries, through to the stresses surrounding Christmas shopping, together with having to deal with all of the social situations, as well as family reunions, and so much more, Christmas can be really overwhelming for many people.

  • Why do I stress instead of feeling festive?

Dealing with the festive season can be difficult because often to take care of our own stresses we need to breathe and find ways to remove ourselves from the situations. There is a finite balance between removing yourself and risking feeling isolated and alone during the most joyful time of the year. Finding a way to deal with individual stressors when life seems to be quite intense is the key.

  • Buying Gifts for the Festive Season

One of the biggest stressors that people face when it comes to Christmas is having to deal with all of the shopping and gift-buying. Decisions about the presents that you will get everyone can be a challenge and then added to that, having to buy so much over such a short period before the height of the season, can leave you struggling with the end-of-year financial stress.

One way to overcome that is to be creative and start buying a few gifts bit-by-bit throughout the year. By doing this it will also spread the cost and give you time to plan and search for each gift idea. Additionally, different retailers will have discounted goods and big sales at different times of the year.

Then, if you like crafts, why not make it personal and add your own energy into your gift-creations?  Your loved ones will notice and feel the attention and care given and certainly appreciate it throughout the years.

The main point of a festive season is to enjoy the moment. Take it easy and respect your own time and need. Look out for ways of having fun during the process instead of adding unnecessary pressure.  Instead of centring your attention on gifts, try to focus on how you can show your loved ones how much you care.

  •  Socialising During Christmas

Of course, when it comes to Christmas it is a time for family and friends, social work reunions and generally getting together to share in the festivities. Be open to the reunion. Get together and share experiences throughout the time that has elapsed from the last socialising event. It is also great to meet up with the children and to witness how they have grown albeit sometimes this can be a little stressful for some, especially if there is a lot of noise and mess. Just remember, even if sometimes it resembles a messy explosion in an area, this is just their way of expressing joyful energy.
