The Ultimate Gift? Stress-Free Holidays! 

The holidays are supposed to be a time to celebrate and enjoy being with family and friends. But trying to make it "the best year ever" can lead to stress, disappointment and hefty credit card bills. It doesn't have to be this way. Follow these three tips to cut the stress out of your holiday plans.

Stress-Free Holiday Tip No. 1

  • Watch your wallet. When it comes to gift-giving, set a budget and stick with it. And draw names if you're exchanging with your extended family.

Stress-Free Holiday Tip No. 2

  • Watch your workload. Don't wait until the last minute to shop or clean before company comes. Stay organized by making to-do lists and gather helpers. Delegating tasks to others will help decrease your workload.

Stress-Free Holiday Tip No. 3

  • Watch your plate. Eating high-fat foods leads to extra pounds - and that means added stress. So when you indulge, choose only your favorite holiday foods and keep the portions small. And stick with your exercise routine to keep your weight on track and relieve stress.
