1. Always Plan Ahead

Nowadays it seems that people spend so much time worrying about the Christmas shopping that needs to be done. It’s far easier to knock out when you first start thinking about it. Start making those purchases right away, as early as you can. Try getting some of your Christmas shopping done in the weeks leading up to Christmas. As for needing unexpected presents, a great tip is to have a few emergency presents just in case something pops up and you need an extra gift to give.

2. Don’t Embarrass Yourself at Christmas Parties

Everyone knows those holiday Christmas parties are right around the corner and provide the perfect time to let your hair down and unwind. But don’t get carried away. Remember that these are the people you work with every day, so the last thing you want to do is drink too much eggnog and do something you’ll regret later.

3. Don’t Have Too High of Expectations

Don’t expect to have the perfect Christmas like those you see in movies and TV shows. Whether you’re single or taken, the most important thing to remember is to have fun. That doesn’t mean putting yourself in debt to purchase the perfect gift for your partner. Just spending quality time together will be the best present from you. And for those of you who are single, just remember that there are plenty of Christmases to come. It isn’t the end of the world because you’re single this year.

4. Ask for Help

If you’re hosting a Christmas party, don’t do all the work yourself. Ask friends and family members to bring different parts of the meal, such as snacks, salads, and desserts. And don’t be afraid to ask for some help around the kitchen. If you have children, ask them to help out too. If you’re single, ask your friends to lend a hand. Christmas is all about coming together and uniting.

5. Do Everything in Moderation

For whatever reason, Christmas seems to be full of excessiveness. But there’s not much enjoyment in looking and feeling like a big, round Santa Claus. The best advice for you is to do everything in moderation, including eating and drinking. Drink a moderate amount of alcohol and switch out the soft drinks for water. As for food, take it easy all season long. Think about it, do you really have to eat a dozen cookies?

6. Get Active Every Morning

As soon as you’re feeling like you overate, then chances are you’re going to be feeling sick. The best way to combat this feeling is to exercise. A brisk walk around the park or a jog will help you burn off those sweet potatoes, stuffing, and all those second helpings you had all weekend long. Get up, get moving, and get sweating!

7. Take Some Time Off

If possible, plan your holidays so that you’re not forced to go to work over the festive season. Many people save up their vacation time for this festive time of year, and maybe you should too. Time off in the days leading up to Christmas will prevent you from being overworked and overstressed by the time Christmas arrives. Save up a few days of vacation time so you can knock out some of your Christmas shopping and errands to avoid feeling overwhelmed.

8. Stay Busy

If you’re concerned about being lonely for Christmas, either because you’re single or can’t spend it with your family, then do something about it. Think about hosting your own Christmas party for people who are in the same boat as you. Also, do not turn down party invitations to other festive events, as it will give you an opportunity to mingle with other singles.

Christmas is all about fun, whether you’re single or taken. One way to accomplish that is by removing all the stress from the festive experience. Although we know it’s going to be stressful, if you follow these tips from our Los Angeles matchmakers, things will be much more enjoyable.
