If you love Thanksgiving but hate the stress, here are a few ways to avoid it this year. Thanksgiving is always a special time of the year but it can also be the cause of a lot of stress for many people
Is the idea of planning a Thanksgiving get together is leaving you in a cold sweat? Here are a few ways to make it more enjoyable.
• Get started early. Planning and shopping early on in the month is one of the best ways to avoid stress closer to the time. Create a plan and a list of what you will need – shopping with a purpose is a lot less stressful.
• Let others help. There is no rule that says you have to do everything yourself. If you have friends and family who are always willing to help, delegate tasks to make Thanksgiving more enjoyable on the day.
• Don’t try something new on the day. If you do want to try a new dessert or side dish, rather practice it ahead of time so that it doesn’t stress you out on the day.
• Remember why you’re together. Sometimes we need to step back and remember why you’re coming together as a family. It’s not about the fancy decorations or the dishes on your table - it’s about spending real time together.
Wishing you and your family a warm and love-filled Thanksgiving.
