Stress free Christmas tip 4 – create a Christmas to do list
To do lists can be a great way to organise what needs to be completed in time for Christmas.
Being realistic about what you can achieve is the key to a good to do list.
Making every part of Christmas dinner from scratch, doing hand-made cards, creating a ‘winter wonderland’ scene in the garden and buying everyone a personalised gift might be a nice idea but how realistic is it?
Christmas treats: here’s a few we prepared earlier…
We only have a set number of days before Christmas arrives so separate out the ‘must dos’ and the ‘would be nice to dos’.
Homemade Christmas decorations are definitely a ‘would be nice to do’
Quickly you’ll see that your real to do list is much shorter; thus leaving you more time for the nice things on the list like creating hand-made cards or spending extra time on those personalised gifts.
