The holiday season is certainly magical, but it can also be stress-inducing. There’s extra pressure to attend parties, buy and wrap presents, and even something as joyful as baking often becomes a chore. The best way to spread Christmas cheer should be self-care. If something feels overwhelming, take a few extra breaths and remind yourself it doesn’t have to be perfect. Perhaps skip buying presents this year and do something relaxing, like painting a gift.
