Less Stressful Holiday Shopping Tips

November 18th, 2015

Holiday shopping is creeping upon us with Black Friday and Cyber Monday around the corner. Everyone is gearing up to prepare themselves for the crowded malls, long lines and being able to grab those in-demand gifts before they’re sold out. All this pressure can make the holiday season a bit stressful, here are a few simple ways to properly prepare for holiday shopping without the “headache”.

 

shopping tips

 

 

• Plan ahead:

It’s important not to shop blindly. Make sure you know what you’re looking for to avoid spending hours aimlessly walking around the mall or searching online. This also will help you dodge those last minute shopping days when everything is sold out or picked through.

 

• Shop online:

Shop stress-free from the comfort of your own home, just make sure you do it before the holiday shipping deadlines. This will save you time, transportation and help you avoid those crowded malls. Not to mention, it’s much easier to search the web for that killer holiday deal without hopping from store-to-store. Plus, a lot of online retailers offer free shipping when you spend a certain dollar amount or offer it as a holiday promotion.

 

• Get in, get out early:

If you absolutely have to make the journey to the malls and shopping centers GO EARLY. Usually before noon the crowds aren’t as bad, stores are cleaned and stocked and inventory hasn’t been picked through. These factors really make a huge difference in your shopping experience.

 

• Remember to hydrate and eat:

Shopping all day can leave you feeling lethargic and fatigued. Make sure you pack a reusable water bottle and a healthy snack to get you through the day. Walnuts/almonds or low sugar organic energy bars are great portable snack that will boost your energy and keep your mind sharp.

 

• Avoid Black Friday and wait for Cyber Monday:

Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend and avoid those crazy stampedes and crowds during Black Friday. Cyber Monday is known to offer the same deals, if not better than Black Friday. You can always check the items out in stores before the holidays to ensure they’re exactly what you want.

 

• Have a backup plan:

If the gift you’re looking for happens to be sold out everywhere, it’s always helpful to have a backup gift idea.

5 Easy Ways to De-Stress Your Life

November 5th, 2015

We all get caught up in work, relationships and drama, which can leave us feeling restless and stressed out. Sometimes it’s important to step back, regroup and clear your mind to keep your mind and body in tip-top shape. Here are a few simple ways to de-stress that will come in handy every day!Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

 

De-stress

 

 

1. When your day is turning into evening, TURN OFF WORK. When you leave the office for the day, it’s important to exit out of work mode and enter into “me time” and family time. Being distracted by issues that cannot be fixed until the next day will only increase your stress level at home and in your personal life.

2. Keep up with the cleaning and clutter. Coming home every day to a clean space is calming for the mind. Remember your home is your sanctuary!

3. Make time for a good night’s sleep. Getting the proper amount of sleep will keep you sharp and alert during the day. We all know fatigue and stress go hand-in-hand.

4. Wake up with enough time to relax, eat breakfast, read the paper, etc. Having that extra time in the morning without feeling rushed is a great way to start your day.

5. Most importantly, always remember to make time for yourself. Whether taking a yoga class, reading a good book or watching your favorite sitcom, it’s alway nice to do something each day that makes you happy.
