6 Tips for Staying Unstoppable During the Holidays
I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour for The Motherhood on behalf of the makers of Children’s MOTRIN® and received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
The holidays seem to come faster and faster every year. It never fails but all of a sudden I feel like a deer in headlights and then I am rushing right up until Christmas Eve. It sounds crazy but I wouldn't have my holidays any other way.
In between all of the shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning and working, there are several things that I do during the holiday that help me stay unstoppable.
6 TIPS FOR STAYING UNSTOPPABLE DURING THE HOLIDAYS
1. Get plenty of sleep.
7-8 hours of sleep at night may seem like a luxury at time but you need a good night's sleep to function properly. I consistently get around 7 hours of sleep a night and if not, I try my hardest to get a nap in.
Drink as much water as you can. I make certain that I always get 8 glasses of water in each day.
3. Don't skip meals.
Make certain to eat three healthy meals per day. Skipping meals can lower your blood sugar and make you feel tired.
4. List everything out.
I plan out my entire day by making a TO-DO list each night. Then I go through it the next morning to make certain that I didn't miss anything. Check out these cute free holiday planner printables to help you get started.
5. Plan it all out.
What stores do you need to get to today or what errands do you have to run? Take a few minutes and plan your entire route out to save a lot of time during the day. Also print any coupons that you might need.
6. Carry snacks and a water bottle everywhere.
I have a little snack box that I carry in my purse at all times. I add a water bottle in there is a well and I am always ready.
Want to be unstoppable during the holidays? Follow the tips above and you will have a much easier time.
