Christmas presents bought?
Christmas presents wrapped? 
Christmas presents that need to be mailed, mailed?
Christmas cards bought, addressed and mailed?
House decorated?
Cookies baked?
Food bought?

Sounds like an overwhelming task when put that way, doesn't it?! For many of us dealing with peri-menopause and the hormonal upheavals that come with it, it can truly become a stressful time! But, as with anything else we face, it can be coped with!

If you are taking meds to help you with peri-menopause related symptoms, don't forget them in the hustle and bustle of the season!  If you are using vitamin B supplements to help, don't forget them either!

But most of all, DO take some time each day 'just for you'! Sit back with a hot cuppa something (coffee, tea, cocoa, buttered rum!!!) and just relax for a few minutes each day.  Maybe take it along to the bathroom and sip it as you relax in a nice warm bubble bath just before bed.  You know best what eases your tensions ~ so be sure to use whatever that is to help you.

This is supposed to be a 'fun' time of year, but for so many of us the stress can be overwhelming ~~ just try to not let it get the best of you.  Ask your family members for help -- you really do NOT have to do it all by yourself.

I send to you all: love and best wishes for a wonderful Christmas......
