Smart Living: How to Survive Shopping and Thrive this Holiday Season

Christmas essential oils

With the holiday season just around the corner, many of us anticipate the hectic atmosphere starting early December until after New Year’s Eve.

Managing your time wisely and staying on top of your priorities can be quite a challenge during the winter’s holiday season. Especially shopping can be quite exhausting. The work projects with close deadlines, your home chores that you never get time-off from, and the holidays’ specials: the Christmas shopping. And parties, which can make the season more fun and entertaining, but may also come with additional stress and tiredness.

So, how do you make sure you survive shopping and thrive this holiday season?

The short answer is: Plan accordingly and have an overview of your top priorities. Regarding shopping, with diffusers and essential oils, you can have (almost) all covered this holiday season. You cannot go wrong with a premium essential oil diffuser or quality, classic essential oils aroma as gifts.

Consider efficient planning and the minimalist approach that “less is more”. Focus on the key activities that are a must or the ones that make you thrive. There is no space in between.

Do the planning for the whole holiday season, keeping track of all /most of your activities. Cut off the ones that are not important or urgent, to make space for the Christmas magic. Focus and don’t miss on your key priorities or projects. Honor your social commitments, pay special attention to the activities or things that make you thrive, make you feel more energetic or happy. Leave also space for the unexpected – last-minute appointments at work or surprise guests at home. You can keep your “thoughts” in your smartphone, pocket agenda or simply on a piece of paper. It shouldn’t be more complicated than that, to be easily manageable at the same time. As I said, less is sometimes more.

Here are 3 activities you don’t want to miss this Holidays Season:

  1. Holidays Shopping

Make yourself a valuable gift: save the time spent in queues, shop smart and make time for you and your loved ones. The most efficient yet simple route is to make a budget, plan and order your gifts online, leaving sufficient time to have them delivered. Pay attention to the deadlines for Secret Santa and early parties – aim to have everything delivered ideally by December 15th.

3. Last but not least: Make Time for Yourself – the winter holidays can be so stressful and hectic, draining out your energy, especially if you’ve had a busy year.

Make the most of your holiday days-off, as an opportunity to erase the stress and burnout and enhance your physical and psychological well-being.

  • Invest in a premium essential oil diffuser: see the recommendations from point 1 – Holidays Shopping.
