Feeling a little Stressy this Christmas?

I wrote a post for Resurgence on a few ways to control the stress of Christmas, which you can read here.

I should have written number 7 – wrap every gift the moment it comes in, but that would have been hypocritical. Enjoy!

  • Thanks for the timely reminder. Just a few short years ago, I wouldn’t have understood number five.

  • I found #1 especially true for me — I get this “but it’s not Christmas if I haven’t made gingerbread AND sugar cookies AND Krakling AND fudge… this year, I’m sticking to baking/making one goodie a week, which leaves us lots of time for relaxing and doing other activities. So much less stressful, and my waistline will thank me too, I’m sure!

  • Thank you! This was just what I needed to read this morning.

  • Good article — thanks!!

    And off topic — I have a question regarding the Amoretti website. Has it been made private? When I try to visit, I get a message saying, “This blog is open to invited readers only.” Is Amoretti gone and I missed the boat? Thanks!

  • This was so good to read – I smiled all the way through it!

    Merry Christmas!

  • Hi! Not sure where to post this…2 questions…ive been browsing the canon website looking at the books etc. They all look great, but what would you recommend particularly for young families? And Rachel…thanks for all the encouragement! You were saying in Loving the Little Years about how pregnancy can use your body rather roughly at times. Thanks that is real. Im working on a large diastasis at the moment & it can be difficult to remember to do the exercises when my lil ones could think of much more amusing things to do!!! Or the dog does! Or the rels! Anyway, my challenge is keeping it in perspective. Any helpful suggestions on pressing on in weight loss, muscle repair etc while not becoming totally obsessed with precious little me? Just wondering…
