Nope, your eyes aren’t deceiving you: it’s officially the beginning of our 6 Steps to a Relaxed Christmas series. Can you believe it? I seriously felt like I was just writing about summer vacation plans, and BOOM—here we are.
But yes, every year around this time, I write a short little series to help you start thinking of the Christmas season just a wee bit early—not so early that you brush it off or think I’m one of those crazies, but not so late that it’s really not that helpful.
I’ve found that with a little foresight, communication, and planning, Christmas is a lot more fun because then you can do the things you really want to do and ignore the rest. You can plan in advance those things that take a bit more time, and then thoroughly enjoy the process because you’re not rushed or doing a halfway job.
So, ready for the first step for a relaxed Christmas? It’s the same first step we do every year. And it’s not sexy, but it’s important.
