You don’t have to do it all.
Look for ways to cut out some of the usual rituals or activities that wear you out.
Make two types of cookies instead of ten.
Buy fewer gifts, and explain that you are working on having a simpler, more meaningful holiday season.
Evaluate every invitation to see if it’s important or not. Sometimes, you can skip a lunch or other gathering and not really miss much.
Be selective about which concerts or programs to attend. At our home, we try to never do two big evening events in a row. It really helps us not get so exhausted and we appreciate the ones we go to a lot more.
