Barbados News

While it is only November 23rd it is never too early to start thinking about Christmas and all the stress that comes with it. Luckily Dollarwise is here with 5 tips on how to reduce Christmas related stress so you can enjoy the holiday spirit with friends and family. So, sit back, read this blog and start planning your Christmas because with a blink of an eye it’s December 24th!


While this might seem like a shoe in for what you need to do before Christmas approaches, it’s best to plan. This can include keeping a journal, making a “to do” list, motivating your children to write their Christmas lists and so on. It is important to keep your planning short (1 week at a time) in order to reduce stress. You do not want to make a massive list of what you need to do for the rest of the month because this will most likely cause more stress than needed. Crossing things off your list is also a very satisfying feeling.

Print out a Calendar

Studies say that having a visual of the days left till Christmas can help you visualize what you have to do before December 24th. Printing out a calendar for the rest of the month of November and for the month of December will allow you to write down what you have to do each day in order to accomplish them. Printing out a calendar can also help you keep track of Christmas parties, your kids’s school events, kid’s Christmas parties and so on. You don’t want to forget any of these important dates and a calendar helps you plan each week out! You can also print out the calendar on nice paper, hang it on your wall in the kitchen, get your kids to decorate it and watch their excitement build as the big day approaches.
