This Holiday Season, More Help = Less Stress

For most of us, doing it all--work, housework, errands, "leisure activities" (quotes intentional)--at any point during the year can be a stretch. When the holidays roll around, To Do lists tend to grow exponentially, and tackling everything you have to do can seem unlikely, if not downright impossible. Still, if you're anything like me, you might be apt to politely decline when a party guest offers to lend a hand in the kitchen or a family member wants to help with wrapping gifts.

In the spirit of making this year's holiday season your most enjoyable, most festive, and least stressful yet, here's my challenge to you this week: don't even think about doing everything alone!

Yes, friends, it's time to hand over (or at least share) the reins. Allowing others to pitch in this season, and bringing on professionals to handle big, time-consuming tasks, may mean letting go of a smidge of control, but it also means big savings in terms of stress. Here's how to make good use of others' talents and people-power over the next six weeks.

This week, create a list of ways you can lighten your workload this holiday season, then start making solid plans for getting the help you need for less stressful, more enjoyable celebrations.
