R-- e ,,f Pa00e 20 Community Holiday stress busters, for big and little people By Darcy Cole Meeker County 4 -H Coordinator The holiday season is upon us. It is a time for family get togethers, decorating, shopping, gift wrap- ping, baking, and attending special actities. Holidays are supposed to be a time of enjoyment and happi- ness, but instead you and your fam- ily may feel stressed because of the extra demands placed upon already busy schedules. Relieving some of the stress dur- ing the holidays can best be accom- plished by getting the whole family involved in tackling hofiday tasks and activities. The following ideas can help you and your family work together to reduce holiday stress. Sit down as a family and come up with a list of all the things that need to be done during the hol- idays (shopping, card signing, cleaning, etc.). Delegate or let fam- ily members volunteer to help. Make up a December calen- dar. Include dates and times of all activities to be attended, as well as a schedule of when tasks such as cleaning, baking, and shopping need to be done. Take a look at your family&apos;s h0li- day activities. Are there things that you do each year, but really do not enjoy? If so, consider not doing the activity any longer or doing it in a different way. Plan easy meals.
