I will admit this time of year has gotten a little easier for me since I have become an empty nester.
I shop during the week when it's not so busy, I plan out all our family meals so I don't over spend, and I prepare all my shipping supplies and build up my inventory so running my business flows smoothly.
When things don't go as planned I know I just need to step back, take a deep breath, close my eyes, and relax. When I take a moment to myself things seem to work out.
If it gets really crazy, I find that writing down everything I need to do very helpful for clearing my mind and getting me back on track.
What do you do during the crazy season to keep yourself calm and things running smoothly?
