Listen Live

In a year where everything has been different and sometimes stressful, here’s a tip on how to approach this time of year – Simplify. Let this be a goal for your Christmas season. We often set ourselves up for failure and disappointment when we set our sights for the biggest, fanciest, most extravagant Christmas.

Make it a point to start simple – whether it comes to decorating, cooking and baking, or gift giving. It’s a way you can ensure you get the things you need to get done, done.

Then, if you find yourself having extra time or money, you can pick and choose areas where you might be able to go bigger, but not at the expense of not getting things done … and not at the expense of your sanity.

So as you approach the next few weeks and everything you need to do, simply simplify.
