11 Important Things to Remember this Christmas

Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Or stressful. Or joyful. Or exhausting. Depends on how you look at it, right?

The first trick to keeping happy at this time of year is to get organised. Write down everything you need to do and when you need to do it by. Mumtastic has a free printable calendar for that – handy. The food, the presents, the lights, the parties, so much to do and we cram it all into a single month. It’s not good for our wellbeing, even though it’s supposed to be.

We all get so busy that we can sometimes forget what Christmas is really all about. So I’m here to remind you. Christmas is about kindness and being grateful and being yourself. It’s about surrounding yourself with the people you love, doing the things you love to do. Christmas is about US.
