Christmas in Singapore can be stressful for many people who want to make the most out of the holidays. The list of things that you want and need to do is just endless—from the decorations to put up, to all the dishes you need to prepare, it can make the holidays more stressful than it really is. But Christmas doesn’t have to be riddled with stress – believe it or not.
Follow these easy, yet effective tips on how to lower the stress level this holiday season.
- Buy your gifts early, seriously. Many people put off holiday shopping in the hopes of scoring bigger discounts or better deals. But these rarely make up for the stress you will face if you end up buying gifts the day before Christmas. In fact, if you find a good holiday gift for someone special during the summer, go ahead and buy it. If you really believe in the saying “it’s the thought that counts,” be on the lookout for great holiday gifts all year round.
- Stop overthinking about decorations. Nowadays, there’s a multitude of great DIY videos online on how to make your own holiday decorations. Yes, DIY is good, provided that you have the time and the skills. If you don’t, there’s nothing wrong with buying all your decorations from the department store. In fact, there’s really no need to buy new decorations every year, unless, of course, you are working on a Santa Claus or Christmas Village collection. Use your decorations from last year and buy new additions as you see fit.
- Take advantage of the internet for your groceries. Cooking for the entire family during the holidays can be stressful, especially if you don’t have enough time to buy all the ingredients you need for the Christmas feast. But you can actually shop groceries online in Singapore, which takes out the need to run to actual stores after work. All you need to do is decide on the dishes you will be making, create a list of ingredients, go online and shop. Best of all, it’s something you can do during a lunch break. You can even schedule when you want the items to be delivered.
