Ho, Ho, Ho:  It’s O.K. to Say “No”

 One of the most significant sources of holiday stress is the demand placed upon our time.  Holiday parties, offers to visit others, invitations to special events and fundraisers, requests by family members to help them with this chore or that errand, and other time-consuming things seem to pop up over and over again.

Christmas is the time for giving, but that doesn’t mean you have to give of yourself until there is nothing less.  It is perfectly acceptable to limit yourself during the holidays.  Don’t take on more responsibilities than you can handle, and don’t over-schedule your time.

We all want to be good people during the holidays and to help whenever we can.  However, if you cannot fit in a request, simply say “no.”  Using this one word can save you tons of unwanted stress during the holiday season.
