    43. Simplify Your Christmas (kids, clutter, traditions, hosting, festivities).

    43. Simplify Your Christmas (kids, clutter, traditions, hosting, festivities).

    Do you want to simplify your Christmas? In this installment of Simple Saturdays, we're talking about strategies to both simplify Christmas and make it special season for you and your family. This is part two of a two-part episode on this topic.





    Missed part one? Listen to Simplify Christmas (gifts, decor, mindsets). Episode 42

    Simplify Your Christmas (kids, clutter, traditions, hosting, festivities)

    Kids

    We feel this tension of longing to make a magical christmas and spoil our kids, while being mindful of the money, the excess and the culture of entitlement we might be contributing to. We try to consider the type of culture we want to create in our family when it comes to gifts.

    The excess from others

    We worry about the influx of gifts from friends and family. On the other side of this, is a gift giver who longs to express their love and their love language might be gifts. They are still trying to show up and love you and your family and we can always be more open to the different ways people are expressing love to us.

    Focus on quality gifts over quantity

    I like the four gift rule (something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read). It is also satisfying to buy them toys that encourage engagement rather than just entertainment.

    Hosting

    Make hosting more about sharing life together and focussing on what is happening for them rather than all your own anxieties. Plan for the things that will be stressful for you (meals, activities, cleaning).

    Festivities

    We don’t have all the time, money and energy, so we have to choose how we spend it. Bring it back to your values and vision for the season and choose the things that are most in line with that. You can’t do everything, so choose what is the best for this year.

    All of these topics are covered in the Simple Christmas Planner

    After all, this is why I made it. To be a roadmap through how to simplify your Christmas, and how to identify and make Christmas a season that you and your family long to have. I know many of you have got your copy already—and some of you have printed off the pages that will best serve you. Whether you use it all, or the parts you need, I think the biggest benefit is having one space to walk through it all—and come back to it next year.

    42. Simplify Christmas (gifts, decor, mindsets).

    What issues do you have when you attempt to simplify Christmas? I asked this question in the Facebook group and on Instagram and was sent so many thoughtful questions—which tells me that I have the best readers, women who can feel the changes they want to make and see it right there and will take steps to get there! This is part one of a two-part episode addressing these issues.





    Simplify Your Christmas (Mindsets, Gifts, Decor)

    Christmas stress + expectations

    Christmas may have been magical as a child, but now we are adults and we feel the stress of all the activities, gifts, budgets, travel, etc. Just like we work at living our LIFE ON PURPOSE, we can get mindful and make a plan to have our CHRISTMAS ON PURPOSE. Planning is so important because it lets you make mindful decision ahead of time, so all that mental and prep work is done and you can just show up and enjoy the special days ahead.

    Gifts

    What sorts of expectations do you have when it comes to gift-giving? VS What are your values with gifts, what do gifts mean to you? When you are looking at your gift lists and thinking of what to buy people, it can help to consider how you want to express your love to them. How can you make them feel seen?

    Decor

    Christmas decor should be whatever you like. If you don’t know what you like, make a vision board on Pinterest and look for themes. Have/keep/buy decor that you LOVE and have room for.

    41. Overwhelm in mom life: Life coaching advice on how to manage overwhelm.

    41. Overwhelm in mom life: Life coaching advice on how to manage overwhelm.

    Overwhelm in motherhood is often part of the role. There is so much to keep track of, manage, plan for, do. 



    When we feel overwhelmed we often think we are doing something wrong, or we need to try harder, or our life is just too hard. 



    Often the overwhelm causes us to stress and act from this stress response which gives us a negative outcome in our lives and homes. 



    But overwhelm is a FEELING we have about the mental clutter in our brain. So, what do we do about the mental clutter?



    We need to lay it out, sort through it and make decisions on what to do next. 



     

    FOUR STEPS TO DEAL WITH OVERWHELM



    * Calm your nervous system

    * Unpack and inventory
