This time of year it is so easy to get caught up in everything going on, and find yourself so stressed out, everything falls apart. Here are a few ways to simplify life and focus on what is really important as we move into the new year. You are likely to do better with your eating habits, if you aren't completely stressed out. I promise!
- Learn to say "No". This is such an important one! Cut back on engagements and other social get-togethers that you don't really enjoy or look forward too. Especially this time of year, things can really pile up fast. Before you know it, every second of every day is booked solid! Say no to the ones you don't especially want to go to, and save that time and energy for the things that really matter and you love most.
- Do one thing at a time. When you find yourself multi-tasking so much that nothing gets your full attention, stop and focus on one thing at a time. You wont enjoy the things you are doing this season if you are constantly juggling too many tasks, plus you will be exhausted!
- De-Clutter. Remove ten things from your closet that you haven't worn this year. Donate them to a good cause. Next do this too your toy room, book shelf, dresser, anything that has become over run and could use a going through. Don't do it alone, enlist the children/teens to help you find things to donate, simultaneously organizing and helping someone in need out. What a good lesson for the kids, and good before bringing in new toys/clothes from the holidays!
