How to Stay Organized & Stress-Free During the Holidays — 4 Simple Tips
The holiday season is one of the most wonderful times of the year, filled with joy and celebration. However, the holidays can also bring a fair amount of stress as we manage high expectations for the season.
By staying organized, planning ahead and forging your own holiday traditions, you can bring joy to yourself as well as all your loved ones. In this blog post, we offer up 4 simple tips to help you take the stress out of the holidays.
- Create a Holiday Calendar.
Start by creating a holiday calendar that outlines all the important dates, including family gatherings, parties and events. Use digital tools on your Assurance Wireless smartphone or old-fashioned paper calendars to keep track of your commitments. This will help you manage your time and ensure that you don't overbook yourself.
- Take Stock of Your Baking Supplies.
Baking is a fun and low-cost tradition many of us enjoy during the holiday season. Take the time before the holiday hustle to check your pantry for baking staples like flour and sugar. If you need to restock, use your free phone to search for coupons and grocery deals. When you want to bake a batch of cookies for your loved ones (or yourself!) you'll already have what you need.
- Keep Your Decorations Simple (and DIY!).
Between light detangling and tree trimming, decorating for the holidays can become a costly headache. If you don’t feel like spending hours on decor, consider simplifying and DIY-ing. Paper snowflakes, homemade ornaments and popcorn strings are not only simple but also fun to make–especially with kids or as an event with friends and family! Search blogs for easy and cost-effective decorating ideas.
- Make Your own Traditions
Try to not get caught up in recreating elaborate family traditions. You can make the holiday whatever you want it to be, so don’t be afraid to simplify or try something new! Your mom may have cooked an elaborate dinner, but if that doesn’t suit you, create a new plan! Try a build-your-own-pizza party or serve up pancakes and French toast for a breakfast buffet. The possibilities are endless and there is no “right” way to celebrate.
The holidays are meant to be a time of celebration and togetherness. We hope you can truly enjoy the festive season with a little help from your free Assurance Wireless smartphone and service. So, get organized, relax and savor the magic of the holidays with your loved ones!
