Christmas is a wonderful, magical time of year. But it is also a holiday in which we can all experience some level of stress. 

Why is Christmas stressful?

Sometimes there can be a lot of pressure to have the biggest and best Christmas. It has been found that people feel stressed over almost every detail of Christmas. From wrapping and posting presents to cooking the Christmas dinner to money worries and trying to make everyone happy. Then there is the mess that can come with hosting members of your family and all the discarded wrapping paper on the actual day. 

Christmas can also be quite a lonely time for some people. For people who live alone or those who have experienced loss, Christmas can become a time of loneliness. 

Here we will take you through some tips on how to lessen the Christmas stress and let you know how our storage Bicester UK will help. 

Have a declutter before the Christmas season begins with the help of our storage Bicester UK

First things first, consider having a declutter before the Christmas season begins. Depending on how many people are in your family and if you have children when Christmas day arrives there may be about to be a lot more stuff and toys in your house. 

If you have already decluttered, then there will be more space and the new additions won’t make your house feel cluttered and messy. Decluttering can seem like a big job and you might be thinking that you don’t want the added stress of decluttering on top of everything else but if you begin nice and early, in October or November, and you take it slowly, doing one room at a time, you could quickly and easily make progress. 

If, when you are decluttering, you find that you have items that you aren’t sure whether you want to keep them or not, you can bring these items to our storage Bicester UK and we will look after it all for you until you have decided what you want to do with it. 

Make a plan

A plan is alway good to have in any situation and Christmas preparations are no different. Sit down and write down everything that needs doing and when it needs doing. This will allow you to see what needs doing first, and how much time you need to have everything ready for Christmas day and allows you to move on to the next step. 

This planning stage can begin months in advance, there are lots of thing that can be done ahead of time (excluding decorating the tree) so ticking something off you long list each month can be a real help in the run up to Christmas.

Get the family involved 

Once you have your list of everything that needs doing, delegate some of the items to other members of your family. Get everyone involved who is spending Christmas with you. It is their Christmas too and they will probably enjoy being more involved. 

There are lots of tasks which will be easy for someone else to do such as writing and addressing cards, delivering cards, wrapping presents or taking presents to the post office. 

Set limits 

If money is the biggest cause of stress for you at Christmas, a really good way to ease some of the stress is to set limits on the amount you can spend on each person. 

Or you can do the Secret Santa system and only buy one person a present. This way you could spend a little more. 

You could also make Christmas gifts and/or cards. You would need to buy some supplies but this could save you money in the long run. 

Make buying presents easier 

The simplest way to make present buying easier is to ask people what they would like! They could give you a list of 5-10 items to choose from so then it stays a surprise. Doing this will make your shopping easier and they will actually get something they really want. 

Make sure to tell them your money limit if you have decided to go down that route. 

Trying to keep everyone happy 

We are going to be honest here, you can’t keep everyone happy. Unfortunately, none of us has the ability to change how a person is feeling or if they are enjoying themselves. 

Check in with everyone who is staying with you and make sure they know you are there to chat and what things you have planned for everyone to do together and then just enjoy your day. 

Have a fun Christmas with the help of our storage Bicester UK

Most importantly make sure that you have fun and enjoy your Christmas. Don’t get bogged down in trying to have the “perfect” Christmas because, truly, it doesn’t exist.
