While the holidays are undoubtedly one of the most joyful times of the year, they’re also accompanied with a lot of stress. Our calendars normally get filled with friends and family and many of us begin to get overwhelmed by our to-do list—decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping, parties, and cooking meals. However, if you want to really make sure that your holidays remain happy, healthy, and stress-free, it’s important to stay organized. Here are 5 ways to eliminate stress by staying organized this holiday season.

Plan Ahead

The holidays can get overwhelming fast, especially when you overcommit and end up with non-stop plans. Instead of trying to attend every holiday party, gathering, or cookie exchange, plan ahead. Give yourself time to enjoy what really matters and if you feel like you’re overextending yourself, say no. You don’t have to attend every function to enjoy the holidays. In fact, the less you do, the more you’ll appreciate it. Keep your schedule organized so you know what you can and cannot do.

Deep Clean

Another great way to eliminate stress is to give your home a deep clean before things get chaotic. By taking the time to do this ahead of time, you’ll avoid stressing over the details later on. Plus, it will be easier to keep things in their place knowing that you’ve already taken the time to get things in order.
