If my mail as editor of Organized Christmas is any guide, there are a lot of tired holiday planners come December 26! Between holiday prep and the excitement of the Christmas season, self-care can go missing for many of us.

Fight back! Plan personal pampering sessions now, and add them to the holiday calendar. "If Mama's not happy, nobody's happy"; your mood affects the whole family.

If you find the season stressful, plan now for some personal pampering sessions during the coming weeks.  A daily walk, candle-lit bath, or meditation session can lift spirits ... so remember self-care as you plan.
