Holiday Guide pt. 2

Welcome to week 2 of your guide to the holidays!  Did you enjoy last weeks post? I’d love to hear from you! Lets jump right into pt. 2

Weekly challenge

Last week your challenge was to focus on yourself and do things that make you happy.  This week is simple. Your challenge this week is to work on getting all your Christmas presents bought and wrapped.  One of the most stressful things during the holidays is all the last minute shopping.  If you start early and give yourself enough time, when you remember the last minutes purchases you will be much less stressed.  If you already have all of your presents, get them wrapped!
