Top tips for stress-free family time

It is important for parents to make family time special and fun, especially around the festive period. We can often feel the pressures of modern life during the holiday rush, particularly when it comes to social events or finances.

Don’t spend what you don’t have

You don’t have to go over budget just to please your children. They can gain more from having a happy family Christmas with a few special presents than they would if their parents were stressed because they’d spent too much. Set yourself a budget that you can stick to and think of some fun and cheap family and toddler games that will entertain everyone.

Create inspiration

Taking part in an inspirational or purposeful activity can make you feel happier and help you relax. This doesn’t have to be anything too serious, as long as it makes you feel like you’ve achieved something worthwhile. It could involve doing something like supporting someone over the holidays, developing a new skill, reading a self-help book on your Android tablet, or volunteering with a local group.##

Be positive

If you have a positive attitude, your whole life will seem happier. Exercise is one of the best ways to achieve this, and you can still have fun and involve the whole family by dancing or taking a walk together. Enjoying social events with family and friends that involve fun and laughter will help put you in a positive mood. You should also be happy for what you have and think of ways you can change other areas of your life.
