The X-Mas Factor – Keeping Your Cool Over Yule

It may be the season to be jolly but for many, Christmas means a large portion of stress with all the trimmings- planning, organising, wanting everything to go well and being with people we may not necessarily want to be with. 


Spending your holiday making Christmas perfect for someone else can put a huge strain on you, especially when you want to be with your own loved ones. 


Here are some survival tips:


?Share the responsibility so that it doesn’t rest solely on your shoulders and in your mind.


?If you have to spend time with people you’d rather not stay calm, take breaks when you can, take a breath and be calm and polite.


?Keep perspective – Remember who and what is important at times of intense stress.  The moment will pass and you’ll find comfort in letting it do so without the build up of emotion.


?Relax – Be kind to yourself. You can only do your best.  The responsibility doesn’t rest with one person and remember- it’s only for a short time.


A really great way to restore a sense of calm is to take flower remedies.
