12 Holiday Sleep Tips #1: Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute

We enjoy the song “The 12 Days of Christmas” as much as anyone, but we don’t think giving out leaping lords or pear trees (with or without partridges) is terribly practical. Instead, between now and December 25th we’ll publish 12 articles, each focusing on a different tip to help you sleep better this holiday season.

Tip #1: Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute

Obviously one of the biggest issues with sleep and the year-end holidays is stress.  There’s so much to do and every year the time to prepare seems shorter.  You can reduce your stress if you don’t wait until the day before your favorite holiday to start decorating or buying gifts.  If you haven’t started already,start now and do a little bit each day.

If things seem overwhelming, make a list of what you have to do, and scratch each task off the list as it’s completed. Perhaps start with a few of the easier ones — it will help you get on a roll!
