Tips for a Stress Free Christmas Party

Stress Management (66)     
Does the thought of Cliff Richard's cheesy Christmas ballad make your heart swell, or make you feel sick that it's that time of year again?Christmas is my favourite holiday, but it's also a stressful period where present buying and party-planning can be a headache. This year I'm planning a stress-free party, for an easier, more joyful time to be had by all.



Thinking about Christmas early is both a bad and good thing. On the positive side, getting things done now for the festive season can relieve stress. From a psychological point of view, the earlier the better - the more planning, the lower your stress levels are going to be because you are spreading the stress out.

Firstly: plan, plan, plan. Staying organised is at the core of my values, and employing it into my party-planning methods at the busiest time of year is a smart idea.



Use a trusted method. Christmas parties aren't the time to try something new, or be daring - why take the risk? Stick to what you know and you can guarantee smiles all round.

Talking about a Christmas party is also a good thing - it can have a positive effect because it gives people something to look forward to. In the UK these months are a bit dreary, and we need something exciting to look forward to, it makes the mood more buoyant.

Whether it's a Christmas party between friends, or a work party, this is the one time of the year where you can do something for those you either work with or socialise with to show you value their friendship or contribution to the company. Rewards, even in adulthood are essential for wellbeing, and upon receipt of this award you can really let your hair down. When employers are seen to be supporting their workforce with a staff event, they get much better work out of them



Expectations are usually high for a Christmas party amongst friends, but don't rise to the bait. Getting started now, gradually doing little tasks needed for a Christmas party can take the strain off, and when your friends ask "have you got this or that", you can answer with a confident "yes", or mentally note down what needs doing next.



Stay breezy - don't let the pressure get to you, and remain calm. It can be difficult to practise a cool exterior at the best of times, never mind when the biggest celebration of the year looms, but start now and you can manage your time and schedule to make sure it's less of a stress and more of a party.
