Our tips:

  • Give before you get

  • Swap with friends

  • Have a game plan for rubbish/ recycling

  • Use this year as an opportunity to plant the seed for future years if you aren’t happy with the way Christmas feels

  • Send people home with food

  • Schedule down time/ relax time

  • Don’t put things down- put them away

  • Plan time to create new homes for your new belongings (and decide if you need to let go of old ones)

  • Put Christmas decorations away at a manageable rate. Let go of the old/ unloved/ broken ones.

  • Don't let usual routines go too far out the window.
