Yes, Christmas can be a joyous time. But it’s also stressful and can cause anxiety for many people. Not everyone is excited about the added stresses that the holidays can bring. Extra spending and crazy family dynamics can be overwhelming.
The key to having a stress-free Christmas is all about preparing and setting boundaries. Stick to a plan that allows for the fun parts of the season without being too overwhelming is the best way to ensure that everyone has the best Christmas possible. (Even if everything isn’t perfect.)
