In times of stress we tend to turn to food for comfort, so here are a couple ideas on how to get a grip on the stresses that tend to come with the holidays.
Start by managing your time and priorities. To prevent being hijacked by the demands of the season, do some planning. Don’t try to do everything all at once. Break it down into smaller amounts of time. Set aside specific days for shopping, baking, connecting with friends and other activities. Consider whether you can shop online for any of your items. Plan your menus and then make your shopping list. That'll help prevent last-minute scrambling to buy forgotten ingredients. And make sure to line up help for meal prep and cleanup!
