Tips For Staying Sane This Christmas

Christmas can make me go a little crazy at the best of times. The massive build up, the worry of getting all the right presents for my family and friends and making sure the day runs smoothly can make anyone go cuckoo!

Don't get me wrong, I love everything about Christmas and celebrating it with my family and friends, but it can be hard to stay sane throughout the time. So I thought I'd lend a hand to those feeling like I do and share my tips:

- Go for a walk. The big family walk after Christmas Day lunch is a tradition - and not one to be missed! Staying inside and cooped up all day isn't the best for you, so get some fresh air and a quick walk around the park will help.

- Stay busy! I like helping my mum with the cooking and laying the table, so staying busy with my hands is a massive tick for staying sane and not over thinking too much. I'm now the household pro at pigs in blankets FYI.

- Get into a routine. This is more for the period after Christmas as some will have a week spare before the New Year. I like to get into a routine of waking up, throwing on my running gear (if it's not too cold!), going for a quick run then coming back and setting out my plans for the day. Structure = a happy Rhiannon!

- Slow down and enjoy the day. After all, it only comes once a year! The run up to Christmas is fun, but there's nothing like Christmas Day with opening presents, delicious food and the annual Monopoly game, so just enjoy it.

- Remind yourself what it's all about. Christmas is about celebrating and spending time with those who you most love in the world, so keep that in mind when you're feeling yourself going a little Christmas Crazy!

What are your best tips for staying sane at Christmas?
